Disc Degeneration May Co-Exist in Lower Back and Neck

neck disc pain spine pictureHave a degenerated disc in the lower back? You may have the same in the neck. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic finds this is most often the case in its Eugene chiropractic practice and relieves both neck pain and lower back pain due 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 a single portion of the spine it seems.

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