What is Degenerative Disc Disease?
The spine is made up of vertebrae (bones) and cushions (discs) that are stacked one on top of the other. Degenerative disc disease occurs when the cushioning discs undergo changes as a result of an injury, disorder, or the natural process of aging. This condition can affect the spine at any location; however, the neck and lower back are the most commonly involved areas.
