Degenerative Disc Treatment – Bay Area Disc Centers
Degenerative disc disease is a condition in which immense pain is caused by a damaged disc. Typically, this pain stems from normal changes to the discs within the spine. But these normal changes are not supposed to cause pain or discomfort. The spinal discs are similar to shock absorbers. They help your spine remain flexible, so you may bend and move without hindrance. As you age, the spine and discs both display signs of normal wear and tear. It happens to just about all of us at some point.
Here at Bay Area Disc Centers, we know the causes, diagnosis methods, and top degenerative disc treatment options available to patients. Dr. Ferrigno suggests a doctor-supervised exercise program, mild stretching, and core exercises to provide better flexibility and improved health for the discs themselves. It’s best to avoid remaining in one position for too long. As such, office workers tend to be the most susceptible to degenerative disc disease.
Over time, degenerative disc disease can become debilitating. Patients who visit Bay Area Disc Centers often do so with the assistance of a walker or cane, as they are unable to successfully move of their own accord. Any routine activities, such as cleaning or cooking, are no longer a possibility. The pain and discomfort are too much to bear.
When that happens, Bay Area Disc Centers utilizes the most recent technologies and advanced medical treatment options available. Our degenerative disc treatment benefits from our S.P.I.N.E. approach, in which we focus on Spinal Decompression, Physiotherapy, Inter-segmental Mobilization, Nutritional Support, and Exercise Rehabilitation.
