Degenerative Disc Disease

Degenerative disc disease is when natural changes in the discs of your spine cause pain. The discs between vertebrae act as shock absorbers for your spine, and as you age, they begin to lose flexibility. While this is a normal part of aging, it should not cause pain. If you experience pain due to this, it is classified as degenerative disc disease.

Each disc is composed of a sturdy outer wall and a soft, gel-like inner core. When we are born, these discs are primarily composed of water, but as age advances, the discs lose some of this water content and begin to get thinner. As you might imagine, this means each disc doesn’t absorb the shocks of everyday life as well.

I came to Regenesys because I went to bed one night last year and when I woke up, I couldn’t get out of bed. I found out that I had chronic disc problems and sciatica. I went to a neurosurgeon who screamed and shouted at me that I should have surgery. I am 69 years old, and for me, surgery is NOT AN OPTION!! I had two injections and they did NOT WORK. I found out about Regenesys online, and when I came in, I talked with Dr. Wilson, and he was very honest with me. He told me that he would try to help me and gave me a ten week plan. When I first walked into Regenesys, I was bent over and barely able to walk. After treatment, I am now standing up straight, walking, and my pain level went from a 10/10 to a 1. I feel like Regenesys is a place where you can get an honest opinion, everyone is very comforting and supportive, and the program works! Come here if you are in pain and let them help you as well!
