Physical Therapy for Degenerative Disc Disease Management

Physical Therapy for Degenerative Disc Disease Management

Degenerative disk disease is when your spinal disks wear down. Spinal disks are rubbery cushions between your vertebrae (bones in your spinal column). They act as shock absorbers and help you move, bend and twist comfortably. Everyone’s spinal disks degenerate over time and is a normal part of aging.


Symptoms of Degenerative Disk Disease

Causes of Degenerative Disk Disease

DDD is primarily caused by wear and tear of spinal discs. Over time, discs naturally tend to dry out and lose their support and function. This can lead to pain and other symptoms of DDD. DDD can start developing in your 30s or 40s, and then progressively worsen.

This condition can also be caused by injury and overuse, which may result from sports or repetitive activities. Once a disc is damaged, it can’t repair itself.


Physical therapy consists of a routine of exercises designed to prevent lower back pain. It is also effective at helping your back retain its strength and flexibility. 

At Reddy Care Physical and Occupational Therapy, we can get you set up with the right therapist for you. Call today to schedule a consultation!
