Degenerative Disc Disease
Degenerative Disc Disease Treatment in Southern California
Degenerative disc disease typically results from the natural aging process. It can also be caused by injury or trauma. The fluid in the disc give its spongy quality and contributes to its shock-absorbing abilities. The amount of water in the disc decreases and the collagens and proteins undergo chemical changes as we age, becoming stiff or rigid and susceptible or prone to tearing. This also causes the discs to flatten and reduce the gap between the vertebrae.
