Best Stretches for Degenerative Disc Disease

degenerative disc disease

Degenerative disc disease refers to the changes in your spinal discs as you age. Spinal discs are soft, compressible discs that separate the interlocking bones or vertebrae of the spine. Discs are like shock absorbers for the spine and allow for flexing, bending and twisting. As we age, spinal discs can break down. Below are several stretches recommended for helping ease the discomfort caused by degenerative disc disease. Stretching helps fortify the back and strengthen the core muscles. This helps relieve stress from your spine from carrying weight and also has the added benefit of increasing blood flow to the discs. The increase in blood flow and stress relief helps stimulate the restoration process.

DDD specifically refers to degeneration of the intervertebral discs, which occurs as a natural part of the aging process. As you grow into your 30s and 40s, although it can occur earlier, you may notice back pain that’s growing more frequent and/or severe.

Polish immigrant Meghan moved to the United States almost 9 years ago. She had been suffering with her back pain for almost 16 years. When she got to the United States she went to a doctor right away to see what can be done about her severe back pain. After having an MRI done Meghan’s doctor told her she was suffering with degeneration as well as bulging and herniated discs. Meghan couldn’t believe that at the young age of 20 years old that she was already had so many back issues. Her doctor suggested surgery but instead she wanted to try everything else before going under the knife.
