Disc Degeneration May Co-Exist in Lower Back and Neck06/07/2011Do you have a degenerated disc in the lower back? You may have the same in the neck. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc finds this is often the case in its Fort Wayne chiropractic practice and we strive to lessen both neck pain and lower back pain due to a degenerated disc. Degenerative disc disease diminishes 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 one part of the spine as it turns out. 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.
