Degenerative Disc Disease

Do you have Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD)? DDD can cause:

  • Radicular Pain or shooting pains


It can be caused by:

  1. A thorough history

  2. Examination

  3. X-rays if necessary


Depending on what we find, our diagnosis can be DDD. Our treatment would focus on:


  1. Re-alignment of the segments affected

  2. Increased range of motion

  3. Exercises to maintain alignment and function

  4. Lifestyle and dietary changes to reduce inflammation
