DEGENERATIVE DISC DISEASE
Degenerative disc disease, also known as DDD, is a very common condition impacting the spinal discs and joints. Millions of people each year suffer from pain related to degenerating spinal discs. At Blue Mountain Wellness, we can help you get your life back with a safe and effective treatment plan designed for people impacted by degenerative disc disease.
CAUSES OF DEGENERATIVE DISC DISEASE
By far the leading cause of degenerative disc disease is wear and tear of the spine over time. Typically, the first step in the degeneration process occurs when the spine stops moving properly due to repetitive work stress or a sedentary lifestyle. Once the spine is not moving correctly, the stage is set for other problems to occur like poor spinal alignment, bad posture,and nerve compression.
Chiropractic care is the best way to get the spine moving properly and correct these alignment problems before disc degeneration begins. Once degenerative disc disease has set in, unfortunately there is no way to reverse it. But, the good news is that chiropractic care can treat all of the pain and spinal alignment issues associated with degeneration safely and effectively.
The doctors at Blue Mountain Wellness have many years of experience treating degenerative disc disease and will create a treatment plan using cutting edge therapies and chiropractic care for optimal results.
