Disc Degeneration May Co-Exist in Lower Back and Neck

neck disc pain spine pictureDo you have a degenerated disc in the lower back? You may also suffer a degenerated disc in your neck. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa finds this is often the situation in its West Des Moines chiropractic practice and relieves both neck pain and lower back pain in part to a degenerated disc.

Degenerative disc disease reduces the disc's flexibility and size. This leads to narrowing of the spinal canal area where the spinal cord and spinal nerves lay. Pain is a common outcome.

Degenerated discs appear to be a systemic problem. (1) Degenerative disc disease is not isolated to one segment of the spine as it turns out.

Researchers examined patients with a lower back disc herniation to healthy volunteers. 98% of those with lower back disc herniations were found to have disc degeneration in their necks while only 88% of healthy volunteers did. (2)
