About Degenerative Disc Disease:

Nearly everyone’s spinal discs show signs of wear as they get older. But not everyone will have degenerative disc disease. While it is not actually a disease, this is a condition in which a damaged disc causes pain. A wide range of symptoms and severity is associated with this condition.

The discs act like shock absorbents between the bones of the spine and are designed to help the back stay flexible while resisting forces in many different planes of motion. Each disc has two parts:

  • A firm, outer layer, the anulus fibrosus. The outer portion of this layer contains nerves. If the disc tears in this area, it can become very painful.
  • A soft, squishy core, the nucleus pulposus. This part of the disc contains proteins that can cause the tissues they touch to swell  and become tender. If these proteins leak out to the nerves of the outer layer of the disc, they can cause a great deal of pain.

Unlike other tissues of the body, the disc has very low blood supply. Once a disc is hurt, it cannot repair itself, and a spiral of degeneration can set in with three stages that appear to occur over 20 to 30 years:

  • Acute pain makes normal movement of the back very hard
  • The bone where the injury occurred becomes unstable. Over a long period of time, the patient will have back pain that comes and goes periodically.
  • The body re-stabilizes the injured segment of the back. The patient experiences fewer bouts of back pain.
