Man with lower back pain due to degenerative disc disease

Are you hoping to find a solution for your degenerative disc disease that does not rely on painkilling medication or surgery? If so, you have definitely come to the right place. At Carolina Chiropractic Plus, our team has years of experience helping patients with this painful malady. We are proud to offer chiropractic service for patients in Boiling Springs, Cherryville, Kings Mountain and the greater Shelby area and beyond.

What Is Degenerative Disc Disease?

Medical professionals use the term “degenerative disc disease” to cover symptoms related to neck pain or back pain that has resulted from the spinal disc experiencing wear and tear. 

Symptoms of degenerative disc disease can include shooting pains in the legs or arms, and numbness and weakness, depending on the severity of the case. Typically, patients with this disorder will experience brief bouts of intense pain in between chronic, ongoing lower-level pain. 

Keep in mind that the word “degenerative” here refers to the fact that the disease is caused by the disc degenerating and does not mean that the illness itself will degenerate or grow worse over the years.

Reasons Why Someone Might get Degenerative Disc Disease

Degenerative disc disease can result from two main causes. Inflammation and the inflammatory proteins leaking out of the interior of the disc area can lead to the spinal structures to swell, causing spasms, muscle tension. Or, there is abnormal micro-motion instability, which indicates very small motions in between the vertebrae, leading to irritation of the nerve roots and nearby muscles and joints.

How Chiropractic Care Can Help Treat Degenerative Disc Disease

The founder of Carolina Chiropractic Plus is Dr. Richard H. Berkowitz, who has been practicing for twenty years now and has the skills, knowledge and experience to help bring patients the relief they need for their degenerative disc disease.

During your first visit, the chiropractor will obtain your full medical history and details about your work and lifestyle. If x-rays are required to get a better understanding of your condition, the chiropractor will order them immediately to help in diagnosis. Then, after an examination and test of your range of motion, the chiropractor will create a customized treatment plan just for your situation. Dr. Berkowitz can perform spinal adjustments as well as schedule you for therapeutic massage.
