Is Degenerative Disc Disease the Cause of my Back Pain?

As we all age, our bodies change. Our hair thins, our vision dims, our joints wear, and our spinal discs thin and undergo degeneration. However, just because a disc shows signs of aging, it does not necessarily mean it is causing your back pain.

Arthritis Pain

As we go about our daily lives, we use our bodies to get things done - yard work, sports, or just getting dressed in the morning. We use our joints. Just as with our cars, over time the parts begin to wear out. What can you do to keep your "car" running?
