As we age, the discs in our spine compress and lose height, which means we become shorter. If this loss of height results in pain, the cause is described as Degenerative Disc Disease, which presents in the form of pains, weakness and burning sensations. DDD, however, is not something to be feared. It’s not really a disease, and doesn’t necessarily get worse over time. It’s a condition that our team treats frequently, and we have developed assessments to quickly identify aggravating factors and suggest programs to alleviate painful areas effectively.
We also actively involve you, the patient, in your treatment program, with strengthening exercises to complete at home. Unlike other interventions, Physiotherapy can result in long-term quality-of-life improvements.
Our interventions and education packages will help you create lifelong habits to prevent future flare-ups and increase the enjoyment of activities that had become painful.
