Got back pain and stiffness? Do you have an uncomfortable, worrisome, tingling, feeling sometimes in the lower back or joints? Getting older brings us hopefully some wisdom and life perspective, but it also comes with challenges. One of those is the fact that our intervertebral discs tend to lose flexibility, causing these well-known symptoms, ranging from mild to severe.

Disc degeneration may also be caused or worsened by obesity, illness and/or injury. Degenerative disc disease or DDD can make you feel old before your time, severely limit your quality of life and ability to function—but it doesn’t have to be that way.

There’s an effective, non-invasive, hands-on treatment method for degenerative disc disease, to help correct mis-aligned spinal vertebra/joints and restore function. Chiropractic treatment has been quite successful in helping to relieve the pain of degenerative disc disease by reducing stress on the spine.

Gentle adjustments may be employed to treat your degenerative disc disease, along with new cold laser therapy, exercise physiotherapy, decompression therapy, EMS (electrical muscle stimulation), ultrasound treatment.. These methods and associated treatments may even eliminate or delay the necessity of a life-interrupting, painful surgical procedure. Chiropractic care may:

  • Reduce inflammation and joint stress
  • Strengthen the body’s core
  • Improve flexibility
  • Increase blood circulation
  • Turn down the pain response
  • Decrease muscle spasms
  • Decrease stress
  • Help build up natural immunity
  • Improve joint coordination
  • Prevent some future injuries(with increased strength and flexibility)

Innovative and time-tested chiropractic treatments have helped alleviate these degenerative disc disease symptoms:

  • Whiplash/accident pain
  • Sports injury
  • Difficulty sitting, reaching, bending and completing daily activities
  • Sciatica
  • Carpal tunnel and other repetitive-stress symptoms

After years of progressively worse pain and increasingly limited motion and independence, many patients in my office experience sudden relief and noticeable, continuing improvement in their symptoms.
