Degenerative disc disease is when normal changes that take place in the discs of your spine cause pain. Spinal discs are like shock absorbers between the vertebrae, or bones, of your spine. They help your back remain flexible, so you can bend and twist. As you get older, they can show signs of wear and tear.

They begin to break down and may not work as well. Your spinal discs are made up of a soft inner core and a tough outer wall. The discs change in ways that may cause degenerative disc disease, such as drying out, cracking, or slipping, also known as a herniated disc.

If you are diagnosed with a disc disease, there are several options. Medication, both over the counter and prescribed, physical therapy, steroid shots, or surgery are all viable treatment options.
