Kayal Pain & Spine Center Has the Area’s Specialists
Franklin Lakes, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/10/2019 -- Degenerative disc disease is an umbrella term for several problems that can occur as people age and their spinal discs start to break down. The pain is typically low-level and chronic with periodic outbursts of extreme pain.
Kayal Pain & Spine Center's pain management specialists in Westwood, Franklin Lakes, Glen Rock, Paramus and Montvale have helped thousands of people deal with these problems. Their training, experience and ability to connect with each patient make them the obvious choice for anyone dealing with degenerative disc disease.
About 30 percent of people experience some form of disc degeneration by age 35 and about 90 percent are affected by age 90. Fortunately, not everyone experiences pain from disc degeneration. When they do, the condition is called degenerative disc disease.
There are 33 vertebrae in the backbone (vertebral column) grouped into three divisions: cervical (neck), thoracic (upper back) and lumbar (lower back). The vertebrae are connected by discs that act as shock absorbers and allow flexibility of the spine.
As people age, their discs, which are made up of a fibrous exterior and a soft cartilage core, can dry out, thin, crack, shrink or flatten out. In addition, the cartilage core can bulge through the fibrous exterior.
Degenerative Disc Disease Pain Can Vary
As people age, their discs start to deteriorate, causing one or more of the following: back pain, neck pain, numbness and shooting pain in the arms and legs. Degenerative disc disease also can cause pain in the hips. However, symptoms can vary, depending on the type and location of degenerative disc disease.
Although degenerative disc disease can be hard to diagnose, the specialists at Kayal Pain & Spine Center are experts. Using a patient's medical history, symptoms and the latest diagnostic tools, they find the answer each patient deserves and then devise the unique treatment plan designed for the best outcome.
