Degenerative Disc Disease
Degenerative disc disease (DDD) happens with age and occurs when one or more discs between the vertebrae of the spinal column deteriorate. This can cause major pain and limit your daily physical activities. There are four stages of degeneration and as the ailment progresses, the symptoms will get worse. This is why it is important to seek medical attention as soon as possible. Utah Accident Clinic treats many patients who have degenerative disc disease. Our chiropractors know what it takes to reduce the pain and get you back on your feet.
After assessing your problem area and determining that you have degenerative disc disease, our chiropractors will walk you through our treatment plans. We aim to improve spinal motion, reduce inflammation and reduce pain. Our treatments are safe and non-invasive so you won’t need to worry about any side effects that medication or surgery might give you. We will use a combination of things such as spinal manipulation to restore movement in your joints, flexion distraction for herniated discs and spinal stenosis, and trigger point therapy to reduce any tension.
While many patients may experience similar symptoms with degenerative disc disease, we will still offer a customized treatment plan. We know that everyone has different body types, pain levels, and are in different stages of degeneration. This is why our chiropractors create specialized treatments for each individual patient. We want our patients to feel comfortable and find comfort in knowing that even though we may have an expected recovery time, we will never rush treatment just because another patient going through a similar stage is seeing more improvement. We want all of our patients to move at their own comfortable pace.
