Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD) is a common condition that affects the discs in the spine and can cause chronic back pain. If you are experiencing DDD, it is important to seek treatment to manage your symptoms and improve your quality of life.
At Las Vegas Spine and Pain, we offer a comprehensive approach to treating DDD, aimed at reducing your pain, improving your mobility, and enhancing your quality of life. Here are some of the treatments we offer for DDD:
Physical Therapy: Physical therapy can help to strengthen the muscles that support your spine, reduce inflammation, and improve your range of motion. Physical therapy can also help to reduce the risk of future injury.
Medications: Over-the-counter and prescription medications can be effective for managing the symptoms of DDD. These include pain relievers, anti-inflammatory drugs, and muscle relaxants. Your doctor will work with you to determine the best medication or combination of medications for your needs.
Interventional Pain Management: Interventional pain management techniques, such as nerve blocks and epidural injections, can be effective for managing chronic DDD. These procedures can help to relieve pain by blocking or reducing the transmission of pain signals to the brain.
Regenerative Medicine: Regenerative medicine treatments, such as stem cell therapy and PRP therapy, can help to promote healing and relieve pain in the affected discs in the spine.
Surgery: In severe cases, surgery may be necessary to manage DDD. Your doctor will determine if surgery is the best option for you and what type of procedure would be most effective.
It is important to note that everyone's experience with DDD is unique, and what works for one person may not work for another. If you are experiencing DDD, it is essential to speak with your doctor to create a personalized pain management plan that takes into account your specific needs and goals.
