Each year, degenerative disc disease impacts thousands of patients in the United States drastically reducing their quality of life. For Livingston-based patients, the award-winning board-certified neurosurgeons at Centers for Neurosurgery, Spine, and Orthopedics offers the latest proven treatments for disc disease. Degenerative disc disease is the medical term to describe the weakening of vertebral discs, which normally act as cushions between the vertebral bones of the spine. This medical condition results from the natural wear and tear involved with the aging process but can may also occur secondary to a back injury. Common symptoms of degenerative disc disease include back pain with radiating pain down an arm or leg, depending on the level of the back at which the disc disease exists.
