How Is Degenerative Disc Disease Treated?

Why this resource is helpful:

Lumbar disc pain is one of the most common causes of disc pain. Regenerative medicine can improve pain, improve function, and reverse the degeneration process.

"Initially, DDD is treated with conservative management including rest, medications, avoiding painful activities, ice/heat, chiropractic, acupuncture, and physical therapy. There are times when all of these treatment options do not produce the expected improvement. The ultimate corrective action in some cases is surgery, although we prefer to avoid surgery until the absolute last resort. There have been a wide array of minimally invasive interventional procedures used to treat DDD. These include epidural steroid injections, intervertebral disc annuloplasty (IDET), and other injections into the disc. Unfortunately, these have not shown to be very effective in reducing symptoms."
