Help for Disc Degeneration in Morristown

spine model backA common condition affecting the spinal discs, disc degeneration can lead to pain, stiffness, and reduced mobility. Disc degeneration occurs when the cushiony discs between the vertebrae of the spine wear down over time due to factors such as age, injury, or poor posture.

Disc herniations are among the most common reasons people come to see us at Morris Spine & Sport.

Symptoms and Causes

As the discs degenerate, they can bulge or herniate, causing the inner gel-like substance to protrude outwards and put pressure on nearby nerves. This nerve compression can lead to symptoms like numbness, tingling, or radiating pain into the extremities—the body’s way of signaling that something is amiss.

Spinal Decompression Therapy

At Morris Spine & Sport, one of the effective treatments offered for disc herniation is spinal decompression therapy. This non-invasive approach involves gently stretching the spine to create negative pressure within the discs, helping to retract the herniated or bulging material and relieving pressure on the nerves.

The Benefits of Seeking Professional Care

If you are experiencing any discomfort or pain related to disc degeneration, it is crucial to seek professional medical advice. Ignoring these symptoms can lead to further complications and a diminished quality of life.
