Spinal Degenerative Disc Disease

Disc degeneration is a natural element of the ageing process.

Spinal degenerative disc disorder therefore is part and parcel of ageing. As the human body ages the intervertebral discs lose some of their features. The volume of water within the discs reduces and the proteins and collagen in the solution undergo chemical changes. The chemical changes result in more rigid substances. The changes that occur within the discs result in the flattening of the discs. This may result in a herniated disc which presses against nerves or the spinal cord itself. In some cases, the discs may develop tears through which the liquid contents sip out.

Degenerative disc disorder occurs when disc degeneration occurs abnormally. The condition is non-reversible and it is better to prevent it rather than deal with the painful symptoms. There are several treatments available for the condition. However, many of them are symptomatic and none can completely reverse the condition. Surgical treatment is only considered as a last resort and in case of an emergency.
