Also, sometimes referred to as dehydrated discs, this is one of the most common features of degenerative disc disease and refers to the loss of fluid in the discs as you age.
As the fluid is lost, it’s replaced by the tough, fibrous tissue that makes up the outer portion of the disc.
Symptoms can include:
Neck or back pain
Stiffness in the back
Weakness in the back
Tingling or numbness in the back
One of the most successful treatments for desiccated discs is a physical therapy programme. At Core Strength Studios, our back pain rehabilitation programmes use specialist strengthening and therapy to increase the strength of the muscles which support the spine, reducing pain and helping you continue everyday tasks without pain.
Your programme will also include exercises to support correct posture along with sports massage, stretching and flexibility work.
