Degenerative Disc Disease

Degenerative disc disease isn’t a disease at all; instead it is a way to describe dehydration and flattening of the disc between the spinal bones that can result in pain, and discomfort. When the disc is flat it can allow the bone to pinch the nerve as it exits the spine resulting in referred pain down the arm or leg. Many people are told this is something you have to live with, but many people use chiropractic care to manage this type of condition. At Hurley Chiropractic we have several options to help patients with this painful condition.
