The health team at Bridgeport Family Chiropractic in Waterloo, wants to show you a natural alternative care for degenerative disc disease. If you are experiencing back pain of an unknown origin, in other words, you have not been injured in an accident or have overworked your back, our chiropractor, Dr. Jeff Winchester, will help you discover the source of your pain and then show you how to remove it. Dr. Winchester provides a complete spinal evaluation to determine why you are uncomfortable. If degenerative disc disease is suspected, you may be experiencing symptoms such as:
- Limited spinal flexibility
- Back pain
- A weakness, numbness or tingling sensation in your arms and/or legs
- Muscle spasms
The symptoms occur because the discs that are made to cushion the space between each vertebrae are compacting and hardening with degenerative disc disease. When this happens, the discs interfere with healthy nerve signals that leave the spine and flow out to your arms and legs. In its early stages, degenerative disc disease may not cause a lot of symptoms. You may believe that it is the normal aging process to feel limited spinal mobility, but we encourage you to visit Dr. Winchester for a full evaluation. Then, we put together a treatment plan that can slow down the progress of the disease as well as improve your symptoms.
