What are degenerative spine conditions?

Degenerative spine conditions are caused by normal wear and tear in the spine, which almost everyone experiences throughout their lives as part of the natural aging process. Spinal discs, for instance, tend to lose their water content and become more rigid over time, restricting their ability to cushion the vertebrae. Similarly, ligaments can thicken as someone ages, potentially leading to nerve compression.

Because these conditions are degenerative, they tend to progress over time, and symptoms typically become more noticeable later in life. However, certain factors can cause symptoms to develop more quickly, such as excess weight, injury, and overuse. Some common degenerative spine conditions include bulging/herniated discs, bone spurs, and spinal osteoarthritis.

What are the symptoms of degenerative spine conditions?

Symptoms will vary depending on the type of condition and how far along it’s progressed. With that being said, some symptoms common to degenerative spine conditions include:

  • Decreased range of motion
  • Loss of sensation
  • Numbness
  • Pain
  • Tingling
  • Weakness

How are degenerative spine conditions treated?

Patients with degenerative spine conditions often find that they’re able to relieve their symptoms using a combination of conservative techniques, possibly including:

  • Anti-inflammatory medication
  • Bracing
  • Corticosteroid injections
  • Heat/cold therapy
  • Pain medication
  • Periodic rest
  • Physical therapy
  • Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) therapy
  • Ultrasound therapy

In some cases, however, conservative treatment isn’t enough, and surgery becomes necessary. At Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic, our experienced surgeons perform a wide range of procedures designed to treat the symptoms of degenerative spine conditions.

I truly wish I could give them more than just 5 stars!

"I couldn’t have asked for better care for my son than from the staff at Tahoe Fracture and Orthopedic. From the receptionist all the way up to the surgeon, we were treated with the utmost respect, kindness, patience, and care. They were not only quick to get him in for an examination, but were amazingly quick to fit him into the schedule to have his injury treated asap!! Thanks to them, my son is now on the road to recovery. I truly wish I could give them more than just five stars!"

Thanks Doc!

"Dr. Mike Fry is a wonderful doctor and caring person. When I saw him for the first time, he held my hand and said, “I’m going to make you well”, and he did! I had back surgery 2.5 years ago and still doing great. Thanks Doc!"
