Degenerative Disc Disease

Degenerative disc illness is a problem affecting millions of Canadians. It is in no way fatal and surgery for it is not absolutely vital. The discs in between the vertebra (intervertebral discs) in the lumbar spine provide an very essential cushioning function. Between every vertebra there is a disc which consists mostly of water and collagen. These discs cumulatively permit substantial range of motion. Feel of all the different directions you can twist and turn.

The fascinating thing about these discs is that as a person ages, they tend to shed some of their water. And it doesn’t get sufficiently replaced so discs tend to get dehydrated and shed height. Most of the organs and body parts in humans have an active metabolism. For instance, the mucosal cells in the mouth get replaced each week, and the cerebrospinal fluid in humans gets replaced every day.

The disc has an extremely slow metabolism, hence, a limited capability to heal. Studies have been carried out seeking at the incidence of degenerative disc illness in patients in their 30’s and 40’s. Interestingly, over 40% of patients in their 40’s have signs of DDD on MRI and they don’t have ANY back pain.

  1. Hello, I saw your office while driving in Dunbar the other day. I was told by a chiropractor about 10 years ago the I have Degenerative Disc Disorder. He advised me to get a ball and do and number of different exercises. Also to start taking Glucosumate. I do exercises regularly and core exercises to strengthen. I have not been consistent with the Glucosomate. How much does it cost for a session,is it come red under MSP or Bluecross? I likely have more questions as I am interested in trying a session.
