What is Degenerative Disc Disease?
Degenerative disc disease is a very common finding, especially as we get older. In between each vertebra there is a disc that helps provide support between these joints. As we age and use our bodies these discs can wear out and degenerate. This is a very common symptom of aging and can be treated conservatively in most cases.
Symptoms related to this disease can vary significantly between individuals from no pain to severe symptoms. Stiffness and weakness within the joints are one of the more common issues that physical therapy can help with.
The physical therapists at Pro Staff are experts when it comes to this disease and will help you along your health journey. No matter what stage of the disease you are in, we believe in treating each individual patient for their unique and personal goals. We understand how frustrating it is to not have the body move the way we want it to, and we want to improve those limitations with you.
Common Symptoms of Degenerative Disc Disease
- Stiffness and decreased motion throughout the spine.
- Pain in the neck, mid-back or low back after prolonged periods of inactivity.
- Decreased strength in the spinal muscles.
- Difficulty sitting or standing for extended periods of time.
- Decreased joint space and possible nerve related symptoms.
