Symptoms and Causes

There are several common causes of degenerative disc disease. They include: 

  • Age: As people get older, the core of the discs between the spinal cord begins to lose water. When this happens, the discs begin to dry out. When the discs dry out, they get thinner. They don't provide the same level of shock absorption as they once did, which can lead to degenerative disc disease.
  • Repeated Minor Injuries: Everyone gets a few lumps and bumps from time to time, and repeated minor injuries can lead to tears involving the discs. Even if they don't cause any symptoms at first, they can build up over time, eventually causing degenerative disc disease. Individuals who work a physically demanding job, or those who have suffered a prior traumatic injury, are at risk of degenerative disc disease.
  • Obesity: Obesity is not a direct cause of degenerative disc disease, but people who are overweight or obese are at a greater risk of developing degenerative disc disease themselves.
  • Smoking: Smoking is another very common risk factor for the development of degenerative disc disease. Individuals who smoke are at a greater risk of developing degenerative disc disease.

Individuals who develop degenerative disc disease can have a wide variety of symptoms. They include:

  • People may feel numbness in certain areas of the body. 
  • They might feel pain radiating down certain parts of the body.
  • That pain tends to come and go. It may last for days, weeks, or months at a time before disappearing.
  • The pain can change with the position of the body.

Because degenerative disc disease can present in a wide variety of ways, it is important to seek the care of an experienced professional as quickly as possible.

What Does The Pain Feel Like From Degenerative Disc?

The pain from degenerative disc disease can vary depending on the scope and severity of the condition; however, the pain usually presents as a shooting or shock-like pain that begins in the back and travels to other areas of the body. For example, the pain may start in the lower back before shooting into the buttocks. Then, there might also be feelings of numbness or tingling in the arms and legs. For example, people often describe a pins and needles sensation in the arms, back, or legs.

How Regenerative Medicine Treats Degenerative Disc Disease

At Houston Spine & Regenerative Medicine, we have a wide variety of treatment options for individuals who have been diagnosed with degenerative disc disease. For example, we can use mesenchymal stem cell treatment, deploying them in certain parts of the body to restore disk tissue that may have been damaged.

We also offer a connective tissue matrix treatment that can create a strong, durable framework that can protect your spinal cord, vertebrae, and disks. This can help you restore the function of tissues that may have been damaged.

Then, we can help you customize a pain management plan to help you get better while also limiting possible complications and side effects. We understand that every individual is different, and that is why we will work with you personally to customize a treatment plan to meet your needs. This could include physical therapy, stem cell treatment, amniotic membrane injections, and other pain management techniques. Count on our team to help you recover from degenerative disc disease.
