Disc Degeneration May Co-Exist in Lower Back and Neck

neck disc pain spine pictureHave a degenerated disc in the lower back? You may have the same in the neck. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation finds this is most often the situation in its Baton Rouge chiropractic practice and relieves both neck pain and lower back pain due to a degenerated disc.

Degenerative disc disease reduces the disc's flexibility and size. This leads to narrowing of the spinal canal area where the spinal cord and spinal nerves lay. Pain is a common outcome.

Degenerated discs appear to be a systemic problem. (1) Degenerative disc disease is not isolated to a single part of the spine it seems.

Researchers compared patients with a lower back disc herniation to healthy volunteers. 98% of those with lower back disc herniations were found to have disc degeneration in their necks while only 88% of healthy volunteers did. (2)
