Best Stretches for Degenerative Disc Disease

Posted by Dr. Jeff Winternheimer D.C. on Fri, Apr 04, 2014 @ 03:14 PM

Degenerative disc disease refers to the changes in your spinal discs as you age. Spinal discs are soft, compressible discs that separate the interlocking bones or vertebrae of the spine. Discs are like shock absorbers for the spine and allow for flexing, bending and twisting. As we age, spinal discs can break down. Below are several stretches recommended for helping ease the discomfort caused by degenerative disc disease. Stretching helps fortify the back and strengthen the core muscles. This helps relieve stress from your spine from carrying weight and also has the added benefit of increasing blood flow to the discs. The increase in blood flow and stress relief helps stimulate the restoration process.

When back specialists talk about degenerative disc disease, they’re really describing a combination of back problems that begin with disc damage--and go on to affect all parts of the back and spine. DDD specifically refers to degeneration of the intervertebral discs, which occurs as a natural part of the aging process. As you grow into your 30s and 40s, although it can occur earlier, you may notice back pain that’s growing more frequent and/or severe.
