Degenerative Disc Disease

As we age our disc tissue between our spine segments loses some of its strength and cushion ability. With some patients this fragile disc can cause loss of room for the nerve to move or pinching, disc buldging, or herniation. PT helps to improve your body mechanics, educate you on safe exercise practices, reduce risk of further injury, improve flexibility, and teach you how to reduce or resolve your symptoms independently with use of traction or relief postions.
