Back pain and sciatica treatment may result from degenerative disc disease

Degenerative disc disease is a condition that may cause you to seek back pain and sciatica treatment. This back issue is a common effect of aging, which may lead you to believe that it only affects older people. However, degenerative disc disease can occur in people of almost any age, including younger people.

In degenerative disc disease, the weakening of the cartilage between the bones in the spine causes issues including:

  • Interrupting necessary blood flow
  • Inflammation
  • Muscle spasms

All these issues lead to long-term back pain. Degenerative disc disease may also lead to an irritation of sciatic nerve causing you to develop sciatica as well.

Options for treating the back pain and sciatica that result from degenerative disc disease range from physical therapy to surgery depending on the severity of your condition.
