Spinal Disc deterioration is inevitable whether it be the everyday wear and tear on our discs or back and neck trauma. While most people’s symptoms will vary, Disc Degeneration can cause a range of aches and pains as the discs act as shock absorbers between the bones and spine and have no blood flow to aid in tissue regeneration.
WHAT IS DISK DEGENERATION AND HOW DO I KNOW IF I HAVE IT?
Disc Degeneration can be felt through numbness or tingling in the extremeties, extreme pain when sitting for long periods of time, the constant need to change positions due to discomfort and/or acute pain when bending.
WHAT ARE THE TREATMENT OPTIONS FOR DISK DEGENERATION?
While Conservative care is the first resort, Disc Degeneration can be diagnosed by physical medical evaluations and MRI’s.
WHAT OUR PATIENTS ARE SAYING
[Since my bulging disc correction] I haven't had pain in my leg at all and had only a little pain in my back from my surgery, but zero pain in my legs, the sciatica is gone.
Edward, age 55, bulging disc injury
Today my back and hip feel tremendous. My legs are still a bit weak, possibly from nerve damage that occurred prior to surgery. I’m going to physical therapy 3 times per week. I was back at work on November 15th, 3 weeks after surgery.
Robert, age 58,
history of disc herniation and previous surgeries
Nobody likes to be injured and neck surgery is a delicate procedure, but Dr. Massoud explained what needed to be done, which made me feel more comfortable. [Post-surgery] I felt great, and today the pain is completely gone.
