Degenerative Disc Disease is
one of the most common causes of lower back pain.
Many patients with lower back pain are usually diagnosed as
suffering from Degenerative Disc Disease; they then become
confused and worried about the condition.
Many patients believe that
Degenerative Disc Disease will continue and the pain will
worsen with time however the truth is that symptoms from Degenerative
Disc Disease do not worsen over time and sometimes the symptoms
get better over time.
Degenerative Disc Disease
is actually a natural part of ageing however not all people
develop the condition, it is very hard for health professionals
to come to an agreement regarding Degenerative Disc Disease
as they are not sure what constitutes Degenerative Disc Disease.
Degenerative Disc Disease
can be treated and managed by the use of drugs and all patients
should be encouraged to exercise the back to give it strength
and gradually reduce the dosage of drugs being taken by them.
Surgery can also be considered
for patients with Degenerative Disc Disease however most health
professionals would not consider it as it is very extensive.
The treatment for Degenerative
Disc Disease can either be passive which can include:
• Pain Medication.
• Chiropractic Manipulation.
• Epidermal Injections.
• Ultra Sound.
The alternative treatment
is to be active meaning:
• Quitting smoking or drinking alcohol.
