Learn More About Degenerative Disc Disease

Here is a brief description of Degenerative Disc Disease. Between each spinal segment (vertebrae) there is a soft disc that allows for movement between the segments and provides some shock absorption. The disc is made up of fibrous outer layers (annulus) surrounding a gel like center (nucleus pulposus). The process by which the discs become less hydrated and elastic throughout the aging process is referred to as degenerative disc disease. It is not in fact a disease but a part of the aging process of the spine. This causes the discs to loose some of their height placing increased stress on the bony structures.
