Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD) is not truly a disease, despite the name. DDD is a term describing the symptoms of degeneration in the spinal discs.
Often, this degeneration comes from natural wear and tear with age, but it may also be the result of other spinal conditions, including:
- Spinal stenosis
- Disc herniations
- Osteophyte formation within the spine
DDD is common in the neck and lower back – the areas of the spine that undergo the most stress over time and are more susceptible to disc degeneration.
