Degenerative Disc Disease

As we grow older, spinal discs start degenerating due to everyday wear & tear. This can result in them losing their default shape and causing friction between the vertebrae, culminating in pain. This wear & tear of the spinal discs due to aging is called degenerative disc disease.

Degenerative Disc Disease Symptoms

Common degenerative disc disease symptoms include the following:

  • Intense pain in the neck & back area that may come and go
  • Radiating pain felt in the lower back and buttocks
  • Weakness, numbness or tingling sensation in the arms/legs
  • Pain that gets severe with sitting, bending, twisting or lifting weights

Degenerative Disc Disease Causes

Degenerative disc disease causes or risk factors generally comprise:

  • Losing water in the spinal discs as a result of ageing
  • Cracks/tears in the spinal discs due to daily movements or minor injuries
  • Severe injuries, like those caused by a fall from a steep height
  • Regularly engaging in physically demanding activities
  • Gender (women have a higher probability of experiencing symptoms)
  • Being overweight or obese
  • Regular smoking

Degenerative Disc Disease Diagnosis

Primary diagnosis of degenerative disc disease usually involves healthcare professionals enquiring about medical history and symptoms being experienced.

This is typically followed by a physical examination wherein you will be asked to do specific movements like bending, twisting, walking, etc., to check for pain.

Conclusive diagnosis requires imaging scans such as an X-ray, MRI and/or CT scan to inspect spinal discs and detect bone/nerve damage near the spine.
