What Are The Symptoms Of A Degenerated Disc?

Posted by Illinois Back Institute on Mon, Jan 28, 2019 @ 03:14 PM

Degenerative discs usually occur in active and healthy people who are in their thirties or forties. As we age the discs in our back can wear down and degenerate, and lead to back pain. Some people with this deterioration may now have any pain and may not even be aware of their condition until they go in for a check up or other health problems occur.

The most pain from degenerative discs usually occurs while sitting because this position puts the most weight on the discs. Conversely, lying down typically relieves the pain since this relieves stress on the disc space. Activities like bending and twisting usually make the pain worse. Many studies have shown that people with degenerated discs tend to feel better while walking or running rather than sitting or standing for long periods of time.
