With age comes joint wear, including wear in the spine. This wear is a form of arthritis, a condition in which the cartilage in a joint wears down and away. This doesn’t necessarily hurt for a patient, but it can hurt and cause other symptoms and certain complications, so the patient might want to address the issue. The big problem is that arthritis doesn’t heal on its own or even with professional treatment. The condition can worsen too. However, there are ways of slowing the progression of the condition and easing symptoms.
Treatment depends on the severity of the symptoms. Sometimes the symptoms are only stiffness and soreness, and these can be treated with icing or heat, as well as a gentle stretching program for the spine. If this doesn’t work for a patient or if the symptoms are more significant, then medication can help relieve symptoms. If another treatment is necessary, a prescription medication can be provided, but there are other treatment options too!
Professional treatment may be necessary to control the symptoms of degenerative disc disease. For a case of arthritis that isn’t severe, prescription medication may be enough, or for a case that is more severe, other treatment may be necessary. Surgery may be necessary in some cases, but there definitely are other options for many patients, including those patients who don’t want to take medication! The best treatment is the one that works for you. There are many potential options, like chiropractic manipulation, TENS treatment, certain injections, and physical therapy. Read on to learn about these options.
There’s a good chance physical therapy will help, yes! This therapy can help you strengthen your back, neck, and core muscles significantly to support your spine better, help compensate for the arthritis damage, and possibly reduce your pain. Physical therapy may be all you need for your treatment, or it can be combined with other treatments. It is best to talk to your doctor about your best plan of action, as each individual needs a different treatment plan.
