When the back pain brought on by degenerative disc disease interferes with your quality of life, chiropractic services may be your best treatment option. Our medical team at Charleston Pain Relief Center can help relieve individuals in the North Charleston area of back pain, numbness, and muscle weakness caused by degenerative disc disease.

What is Degenerative Disc Disease?

With degenerative disc disease, the rubbery cushions between the spinal vertebrae become damaged and begin to wear away, making it to where the spine cannot properly flex and support the body. Degenerative disc disease is usually related to age. Due to the wearing of the spinal cushioning, this deterioration can cause previously-protected nerves to become pinched between the vertebrae as the spine moves.
