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.
Contact Georgia Spinal Health & Wellness today to find relief from degenerative disc disease. We are ready and waiting to take your call.

They treated me after two different injuries and I now have full range of motion, am pain-free, and feel like I’m good as new again. I’d highly recommend Dr. Surloff and Dr. Hochman – they’re amazing at what they do and they really care about helping you get better. Plus they’re more than just chiropractic – physical therapy, massage, IDD therapy and more.
In all my years of going to a Dr. I’ve never had someone with better bed side manners, personable, friendly and genuinely interested in your health care. His staff are the best, clean and punctual.
If you’re looking for a professional that has a heart, then go to Georgia Spinal and “stand up straight” again!.
I have had IDD, chiropractic, massage and physical therapy with them over the last few years and have nothing but good things to say about this practice. Everyone there is super friendly and you can tell that Dr. Hochman is genuinely concerned for your wellness
