Degenerative Disc Disease
Degenerative disc disease is a condition which involves a damaged disc that causes pain and discomfort in the sufferer. The condition is more complex than the name suggests, in that not all sufferers have the same experience. The term “degenerative” in the context of the condition refers to the degeneration of the disc, as opposed to any symptoms related to the condition.
All discs degenerate as we age, which is why as medical professionals we are careful not to make blanket statements about any progression of the condition. At Georgia Spinal Health & Wellness, our focus is on creating pain management and treatment plans that address each patient’s specific progression.

It is important to note that although it is described as a disease, degenerative disc disease is actually a condition. For the vast majority of people who can be said to suffer from degenerative disc disease, the distinction is made when the degeneration of the disc is happening faster than expected. As such, younger people with advanced degeneration should have the condition treated so they can continue to live as normal a life as possible.
Our combination treatments allow us to treat degenerative disc disease from multiple angles. We look at our patient’s lifestyle, diet and home life to build a picture of contributing causes. When we treat the individual parts, rather than trying to apply a single treatment to the whole, we are better positioned to offer treatments that reflect the realities of each individual’s lifestyle.
We keep an open line of communication with our patients, with a view to keeping you informed throughout treatment and rehabilitation. If you have been diagnosed with degenerative disc disease, we can offer you the most robust treatment plan anywhere in Atlanta.
