What is degenerative disc disease?
Degeneration of the intervertebral disc, often called "degenerative disc disease" (DDD) of the spine, is a condition that can be painful and can greatly affect the quality of one's life. While disc degeneration is a normal part of aging and for most people is not a problem, for certain individuals a degenerated disc can cause severe and constant chronic pain.
With symptomatic degenerative disc disease, chronic low back pain sometimes radiates to the hips, or there can even be pain in the buttocks or thighs while walking; sporadic tingling or weakness through the knees may also be evident.
Similar pain may be felt or may increase while sitting, bending, lifting and twisting. Chronic neck pain can also be caused in the upper spine, with pain radiating to the shoulders, arms and hands.
Treatment of a degenerative disc disease via surgery tries to stabilise the condition.
