What Is Degenerative Disc Disease?
As we age, the discs in our spine begin to wear down. For some people, this process goes unnoticed. If the degeneration of discs causes stiffness, pain, or discomfort, it’s referred to as degenerative disc disease (DDD).
What Are The Symptoms?
Degenerative disc disease can cause moderate discomfort for some, but for others, it can become debilitating. The pain can come and go, lasting for days, weeks, or even months.

Spinal Decompression Therapy For Degenerative Disc Disease
Spinal traction is a non-surgical therapy usually performed by a chiropractor that stretches the spine and relieves tight spinal muscles. When the spine is decompressed, discomfort diminishes, and fluids can move around more freely. Because very little pressure is required for decompression, most patients have little to no discomfort.
