Degenerative Disc Disease Treatment

Physical Therapy Can Help!

Unpleasant and often painful, degenerative disc disease (DDD) can cause the discs in your lower back to deteriorate over time and lead to serious discomfort and loss of mobility. If you’re suffering from this condition, it’s important to see a physical therapist as soon as possible to determine the treatment plan that will best meet your needs and help you get back on track with an active lifestyle.

What Is Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD)?

Your spine is a flexible column made up of bones (vertebrae) and soft tissue. The discs act as shock absorbers, helping absorb pressure while your spine moves and bends. 

When you put stress on your back—whether from bad posture or chronic heavy lifting—the discs can stretch, bulge, tear, or wear down over time. This condition is called degenerative disc disease (DDD). DDD can cause pain and restrict motion in different parts of your body.

How To Know If You Have DDD

There are 3 easy ways to tell if you have DDD. If you are experiencing pain in your lower back on a consistent basis, or for an extended period of time, and it’s getting worse over time, there is a strong chance that you have DDD. Other symptoms include not being able to sleep or relax due to back pain as well as numbness, weakness or tingling.

Can I Treat My DDD with Exercise and Physical Therapy?

Just because you may have back pain now doesn’t mean you’ll have to live with it forever. In fact, you can actually get rid of your pain altogether. That’s where exercise and physical therapy come in. Our team will walk you through what will work best for your specific condition and needs.
