What is degenerative disc disease?

Degenerative disc disease is one of the most common forms of low back pain and is a natural part of the aging process, affecting all people in one way or another. While there is much debate among the medical community about degenerative disc disease and its symptoms, there are a few known facts.
Disc herniation or a bulging disc can cause pain by compressing or irritating the spinal cord or nerve roots. The degenerative disc then causes chronic pain by compressing the nerve roots, allowing the spinal cord and nerves less room to function.

The name of the condition is a bit misleading, as “degenerative” implies a long, gradual, painful condition. But disc degeneration is actually just a part of aging. Additionally, the word “disease” associated with this condition can be confusing as it is not as much a disease as a condition that can result in some pain from a damaged disc.

How is degenerative disc disease treated?

The condition may be treated with Calmare® Therapy, a non-narcotic, non-invasive medical procedure for the treatment of chronic pain. For more information about Calmare® Therapy, please click here.

Who is a candidate for treatment?

After a thorough medical history and physical examination, your doctor will discuss with you the treatment options available to relieve the pain you experience. Though there is no real “cure” for this condition, there are a number of ways to help ease the pain and feel better, including hot and cold compresses, rehabilitative exercises and self-help programs such as home exercise and stretching program as well as programs like yoga or Pilates.

What is the recovery process?

Since it is part of the natural aging process, recovery from degenerative disc disease may not be possible or even necessary, considering the condition is harmless and normal for everyone. Instead, you may want to talk with the doctor about options for pain relief and enhancing your quality of life.

Patients are under medical management during the recovery phase with an emphasis on minimizing and reducing pharmaceutical usage.
