Degenerative Disc Disease Treatment | Loy Chiropractic Arts Solana Beach
What is Degenerative Disc Disease?
Proper spinal alignment and joint function are essential for healthy, pain-free living, and optimum flexibility and range of motion. When our vertebrae become misaligned, these “subluxations” place harmful stress and pressure on the spinal bones. This pressure causes the bones to rub or grind together in an abnormal way, leading to disc decay or degeneration.
Degenerative Disc Disease Symptoms and Causes
If left untreated, a spinal subluxation may lead to Degenerative Disc Disease (“subluxation degeneration”) or osteoarthritis — both of which are progressive conditions that can have a domino effect, triggering additional health problems. After years of neglect, improperly functioning spinal joints may fuse together, resulting in chronic pain, nervous system impairment, and restricted range of motion.
