What to Do When Spinal Discs Wear Down
Spinal discs, like most other parts of your body, have an important job, but over time, they become worn down. When functioning properly, the discs will let you move your back and neck and flex, bend, and turn other parts of your body; as they accumulate wear and tear, you’ll start to notice several aches and pains that only grow worse over time. When you notice pain in your back or neck, call us as soon as possible to schedule a consultation with Dr. Rozenberg to determine whether or not you need degenerative disc treatment in Culver City and Van Nuys office.
What Causes Degenerative Disc Disease?
Degenerative disc disease is simply the result of normal changes in your spinal discs. The discs themselves consist of a soft core surrounded by a wall. They are mostly made up of water, which gives them their shape. As they lose water over the years, they become thinner and can’t absorb shocks as well as they used to; they also provide less cushioning for the vertebrae, leading to back pain. There’s also the risk of the outer wall tearing due to the stress of everyday movements; if the damage occurs near a nerve, it can be very painful. If this sounds like something you’re dealing with, please contact our office to learn your options for degenerative disc disease treatment in Culver City and Van Nuys.
