Degenerative disc disease affects the spinal discs between the bones in the spine, which can produce a range of painful symptoms. At Advanced Interventional Pain Clinic, we offer a range of treatment solutions to help patients in Ocoee, Longwood and Orlando, FL, overcome the symptoms of this condition.
What is Degenerative Disc Disease?
Degenerative disc disease is less of a disease, and more of a natural change that occurs in the spinal discs over time. Due to repeated use and the stress of daily life, the spinal discs can deteriorate, growing thinner and more fragile. This may not cause any symptoms initially, but as the spinal discs become smaller, the bones can show signs of wear and may even damage the surrounding nerves. If this begins to happen, you may experience pain, reduced range of motion and other symptoms. Advanced Interventional Pain Clinic offers a number of treatment solutions to help patients overcome the symptoms of degenerative disc disease.
How is Degenerative Disc Disease Treated?
At Advanced Interventional Pain Clinic, your degenerative disc disease treatment will depend on the severity and location of your symptoms. In some cases, self-care techniques and gentle therapies such as physical therapy can produce significant improvements in your condition. In other cases, if your condition has created pain or other symptoms by damaging the nerves along the spine, we may recommend a more aggressive form of treatment. This may include injections and blocks. Nerve block treatments can prevent pain signals from reaching the brain, producing an immediate and noticeable reduction in pain so that you can enjoy an improved quality of life.
What Can I Expect from Degenerative Disc Disease Treatment?
The results from your degenerative disc disease treatment will vary depending on the severity of your condition. In most cases, since the effects of degenerative disc disease cannot be reversed, you may need to have additional treatments in order to maintain the relief of your symptoms. During your initial visit with one of our doctors, we will determine the best treatment technique for your situation and inform you of the results you can expect based on that treatment.
