Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD)
What is Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD) and how can we help you?
Degenerative Disc Disease is a medical condition which causes loss of function of one or more discs in the spine to a magnitude that would cause symptoms such as pain that can be felt in the back, neck, arms, hips, thighs, legs, and tingling in the fingers. We may not be able to cure the disease, but we can relieve some of the pain at STG Health and Wellness.
Causes and Risk Factors
The main cause of DDD is aging, as the discs wear down over time. Injury, health factors and lifestyle choices can accelerate DDD, as well as possibly genetic predisposition to joint pain and musculoskeletal disorders. A major trauma such as a car accident rarely starts Degenerative Disc Disease.
Nearly every service offered at STG Health and Wellness can help treat the pain caused by DDD. The services that can help relieve your pain include chiropractic therapy, physiotherapy, laser therapy, bracing, athletic therapy, and massage therapy.
