Degenerative disc disease, also called arthritis of the spine, is more common in individuals over 40. Unfortunately, it can also happen to those who have endured an accident or an injury. Like any other body organ, the spine will deteriorate.
NUCCA chiropractic in Redwood City is one of the best care options for this disease. Don’t wait too long to get assessed by a chiropractor because further damage can occur if you continue without proper care.
This disease affects the discs, muscles, and joints that keep the spine in place, leading to a breakdown of the spine itself. In addition, bones will eventually start rubbing together, further stressing the muscles, discs, and joints.
To provide temporary relief for mild pain, you can use hot and cold therapy. Put alternating ice packs and heating pads in the inflamed or sore part of the back for 10 to 15 minutes. Do it four times daily to reduce soreness and inflammation.
Some specific stretches and exercises can help manage the discomfort caused by degenerative disc disease. These movements temporarily relieve pressure in your lower back, hips, and legs. It is best to discuss these exercises and stretches with a doctor practicing NUCCA chiropractic in Redwood City to make sure they will not bring more harm than good to the sensitive parts of your spine.
NUCCA chiropractic in Redwood City is a gentle method to correct upper cervical spine misalignments in order to make the body function properly again. Chiropractors practicing the NUCCA method help patients see a reversal of degenerative disc disease or at the very least prevent it from progressing any further. The root cause is often in the neck area involving a tiny misalignment that adds pressure on the brainstem and impairs it.
Relieving the stress on the spine leads to a significant decrease in the problems caused by degenerative disc disease and delays any further progression. In addition, many patients find that slight neck adjustments give the whole body the much-needed relief to live normally again.
