Degenerative Disc Disease Treatment in Paterson, NJ

Degenerative disc disease is not as much a disease as it is a name for the wear and tear that can happen to the spine as we age. Our discs are made of a tough, rubbery exterior and a soft spinal canal interior. They sit between the vertebrae to act as shock absorbers. As we age, the spinal discs begin to degenerate, causing damaged discs and severe pain. This can cause herniated discs, bulging discs, spinal stenosis, and bone spurs. In some cases, degenerative disc disease leads to numbness and tingling in your arms and legs. It can also make your leg muscles become weak. This means the damaged intervertebral discs may be affecting the nerves near your spine.

Common Symptoms Include:

  • Muscle tension or muscle spasms
  • Lumbar Spine Pain
  • Pain in the buttocks
  • Pain in Upper Thighs
  • Increased pain while bending or twisting the spine
  • Worsening Pain while Sitting or Standing up
  • Temporarily Relief by Changing Positions
  • Inability to Lift Weights.
  • Compromised Range of Motion

This leads patients to seek degenerative disc disease surgery or spinal fusion, which should be avoided. Degenerative disc disease treatment administering effective chiropractic care and physical therapy could help you and it’s a better option. The bones of the spines and the discs between the vertebra benefit from effective spinal cord therapy and manipulation.
