Your Condition

Disc Degeneration

Disc degeneration is often the effect of natural daily stresses and minor injuries that cause spinal discs to gradually lose water as the rigid outer shell of a disc weakens. This can cause them to begin to collapse, resulting in pressure being put on the nerves and joints in the spinal column, causing pain and weakness.

The treatment we use for this condition is most often in the form of chiropractic adjustments and spinal decompression. This condition generally takes 4-6 weeks to resolve when proper treatment and self-care are followed.
