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. Dr. Gary Stefanick finds this is often the case in its New York chiropractic practice and we strive to lessen both neck pain and lower back pain in part to a degenerated disc.

Degenerative disc disease reduces the disc's flexibility and size. This results in a 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)

Don't worry if you've experienced lower back pain and have not had any neck pain. Dr. Gary Stefanick is considerably experienced in relieving back pain due to disc degeneration. As a matter of fact, Dr. Gary Stefanick treats lower back pain patients with herniations and degenerated discs - as well as neck pain patients who have the same - all the time in New York.
