Degenerative Disc Disease


​Discs are the structures that connect one vertebra to another. The outer layer of a disc is similar to duct tape, and the inner layer of the disc is similar to gelatin. When the outer layer of the disc cracks and the the gelatin loses water, then the disc itself shrinks. This process can chemically irritate the nerve due to leaking of the gelatin. The loss of disc height can cause Stenosis, which shrinks the nerve outlet which can result in pinching of the nerve. Either way, you end up with the pain and discomfort of Degenerative Disc Disease.

  • Degenerative Disc Disease is the break down and shrinking of a spinal disc
  • It can be experienced as pain in the neck and arm or the low back and leg, and/or numbness, tingling, or weakness in the arm or leg
  • Commonly, people over the age of 60 have DDD at some level in their spine because it is a natural process of aging.
  • Additionally, early onset of DDD can be caused by poor long-term posture, traumatic sport or work injuries, motor vehicle accidents, smoking and/or poor nutrition
  • Degenerative Disc Disease is a natural process of aging, but the pain and discomfort associated with DDD can be alleviated with physical therapy.

  • Joint Mobilization, Joint Manipulation and Therapeutic Massage

  • Can include Trigger Point Dry Needling, Therapeutic Taping, and desensitizing the central nervous system (Associative Awareness Technique)




Herniated Buldging Disc


​Discs are the structures that connect one vertebra to the other – the outer layer of a disc is similar to duct tape, and the inner layer of the disc is similar to gelatin. When the outer layer of the disc thins or breaks, the gelatin swells or spills out into the area where the spinal cord and nerve root live. If the disc touches the nerve then the nerve is mechanically pinched. If the disc leaks then the nerve is chemically irritated. Either way, you end up with pain and discomfort.

  • A Herniated Bulging Disc is the swelling or break down of a disc in the spine
  • Herniated Bulging Discs can be experienced as: pain in the neck and arm or the low back and leg, and/or numbness, tingling, or weakness in the arm or leg
