Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD) is a common condition that affects the intervertebral discs in the spine, leading to pain, stiffness, and reduced mobility. At Align Health, we understand the impact of DDD on your daily life, and our compassionate team of healthcare professionals is dedicated to providing comprehensive management strategies to restore your spinal health and improve your function.
Understanding Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD):
Degenerative Disc Disease is a condition where the intervertebral discs, which act as cushions between the vertebrae in the spine, undergo wear and tear over time. As the discs degenerate, they lose their ability to absorb shock and provide stability, leading to discomfort and restricted movement.
At Align Health, we begin the management process by conducting a thorough evaluation of your Degenerative Disc Disease. Our experienced healthcare providers will review your medical history, perform a physical examination, and may request imaging tests such as X-rays, MRI, or CT scans to assess the extent of disc degeneration and its impact on the spinal structures.
Personalized Treatment Plan:
Based on the evaluation, we will create a tailored treatment plan that may include a combination of the following approaches:
Chiropractic Care: Gentle adjustments can help improve spinal alignment, reduce nerve irritation, and alleviate pain associated with DDD.
Physical Therapy: Customized exercises and stretches will be prescribed to strengthen the supporting muscles, improve flexibility, and enhance spinal stability.
Pain Management: We may incorporate various pain-relieving techniques such as heat or cold therapy, electrical stimulation, or ultrasound to provide relief from discomfort.
Spinal Decompression: This non-surgical technique can help relieve pressure on the affected discs, promoting improved circulation and nutrient absorption.
Lifestyle Modifications: We may provide guidance on maintaining proper posture, ergonomics, and lifestyle changes to manage your condition effectively.
Support and Education:
We believe in empowering you with knowledge about your Degenerative Disc Disease. Throughout your journey with Align Health, we will provide valuable information and support to help you better understand your condition and make informed decisions about your treatment.
