Lumbar Degenerative Disc Disease

Lumbar degenerative disc disease is a common condition in aging population. The intervertebral discs serve as the spine’s shock absorbers and, as we age, discs gradually dry out, losing strength and resiliency. This can cause discs to lose height and become stiff. When disc height is lost, nerve impingement, bone and joint inflammation, and pain can occur. Pain is typically worsened with sitting or standing for extended periods and made better with moving around.
