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.
