HOUSTON, Jan. 23, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Degenerative disc disease affects many individuals, and it can cause a significant amount of pain to those affected. Its most common cause is related to aging and deterioration of the bones in the spine, and pain from the condition results when two or more vertebrae move and place pressure on the spine. This is a condition that often is associated with both a herniated disc and spinal stenosis. The fact is that symptoms from this condition may range from moderate to debilitating, and in the worst case, it can result in an individual being unable to move without experiencing severe pain. Gulf Coast Spine Care is a reputable medical facility that is now offering new and improved treatment options for those suffering from degenerative disc disease.
There are several different ways to treat degenerative disc disease. Some of the treatments, such as medication and spinal manipulation, are designed to help the patient manage the pain. These may be sufficient to ease or eliminate the pain for a short period of time, and the patient may be able to return to some daily activities. However, the effects of these solutions are often short-lived, and patients generally need to find a better treatment option that provides lasting results. Gulf Coast Spine Care now offers patients several treatment options that may provide more significant results for their pain management or elimination goals. For example, epidural injections and even surgery are several options available through Gulf Coast Spine Care.
When a new patient visits Gulf Coast Spine Care, he or she will receive an examination from the trained medical professionals on staff. These professionals will confirm the diagnosis of degenerative disc disease and will work to develop an effective treatment plan.
