Degenerative Disc Disease

WHAT is it?

Degenerative disc disease is not really a disease but a term used to describe the normal changes in your spinal discs that separate your back bones (vertebrae). As the space between the vertebrae gets smaller, there is less padding between them, and the spine becomes less stable.

WHEN does it hurt?

The pain may start after a major injury (such as from a car accident), a minor injury (such as a fall from a low height), or a normal motion (such as bending over to pick something up). It may also start gradually for no known reason and get worse over time.

WHY do I have it?

As we age, our spinal discs break down, or degenerate, which may result in degenerative disc disease in some people. This can often lead herniated discs, stenosis and osteoarthritis.


The main purpose of a properly fitted back brace to help stabilize the spine and promote proper posture. Helping the vertebrae align properly with right amount compression can reduce the stress on the discs and provide comfort.
