In this article I’ll be talking about degenerative disc disease and treatment options that are available.

We want you to know one thing aboout degenerative disc disease, it is a very misunderstood condition, despite being one of the leading sources of back pain and neck pain. This condition is not actually a disease; it is part of the normal aging of the spine. In this condition, the discs in the spine lose their cushioning. When this happens, it can cause persistent pain in the lower back, legs, neck or arms. Treatments for pain caused by degenerative disc disease can include medications and physical therapy. Sometimes surgery is needed if the pain is severe and causes a person the inability to participate in everyday activities.

If you think you may have this, some of the symptoms of degenerative disc disease include: low back pain is made worse by sitting, certain types of activity will usually worsen the lower back pain especially bending lifting and twisting, walking and even running may actually feel better than prolong sitting or standing, and patients will generally feel better if they can change positions frequently.

You don’t have to jump righ to surgery. For many people, degenerative disc disease can be successfully treated with conservative care consisting of medication to control inflammation and pain, and physical therapy and exercise. Surgery is only considered when patients have not achieved relief with conservative care and are significantly constrained in performing everyday activities. Patients unable to function because of the pain or who are frustrated with their activity limitations may consider spinal fusion surgery for symptomatic degenerative disc disease.

One way to help is with fusion surgery. Fusion surgery is designed to reduce the pain because it stops the motion at a painful motion segment. While it is a major surgery, fusion surgery can be an effective option for patients to enhance their activity level and overall quality of life. This potential positive outcome is particularly true now that minimally invasive surgical techniques are available to decrease post-operative discomfort, preserve more of the normal anatomy of the low back and result in higher rates of fusion than previous techniques. Dr. Kris Parchuri D.O. would be happy to discuss all of your options in combatting the pain and often debilitating quality of life if you are experiencing Degenerative Disc Disease.
