Are you suffering from degenerative disc disease? If so, you should visit Sunnyside Wellness & Chiropractic Center, in Fresno, Clovis, and the surrounding community. When sudden changes occur within the disks of your spine, pain results. It can cause severe back pain as well as an array of other symptoms. Chiropractic care seems to be highly beneficial in relieving pain associated with degenerative disk disease. As you age, the spinal disks in your spine can begin to show signs of wear and tear. They won’t work well as they used to as they begin to break down.

Causes & Symptoms

The disks may change in different ways which can lead to degenerative disk disease. The disks may begin to dry out as you begin to age. They will lose water and thin out, even everyday movements can put stress on your disks.

You will know something is not right when you begin to feel constant pain or pain that is sharp within your neck and back. Depending on where the affected disk is located, symptoms will vary. You may experience pain that gets worse when you sit, move, and walk. You may also feel more pain when you bend, twist, or lift heavy objects. The pain may subside when you change positions or even lie down. It can come and go and can be very agitating. The pain may last anywhere from several days to several months.

Our chiropractor will work to improve the mechanics of your joints and spinal motion. This will be done by decreasing the amount of inflammation that is present. If you are suffering from advanced disk degeneration, our chiropractor will use different treatments to improve the function of the intervertebral discs.
