Degenerative Disc Disease
As we age, spinal discs may degenerate or break down, causing a loss of disc fluid and a narrowing of the space between vertebrae.
Small cracks in the outer disc shell may also cause a bulging disc — especially for those who are:
- Smoke cigarettes
- Perform heavy physical work
Dr. Presas at the North Dallas Spine Center uses a combination of gentle, upper cervical corrections and spinal decompression to successfully reduce or eliminate pain caused by this condition.
What's more, he encourages patients of all ages to maintain active, healthy lives to prevent further degeneration and promote overall well being for years to come.
