What supplements are good for degenerative disc disease?
Patients dealing with degenerative disc disease symptoms that interfere with basic activities sometimes use supplements as part of a comprehensive treatment plan. While not a substitute for conventional conservative treatments such as over-the-counter medication, physical therapy, spinal injections or chiropractic care, supplements and herbal remedies are often explored for their purported pain relieving and anti-inflammatory properties.
If you are interested in adding supplements to your degenerative disc disease treatment plan, speak with your doctor about which ones may be best for you and your particular medical history. You can also seek out a licensed herbalist who can guide you to potentially effective supplements for this condition, but you should still keep your primary doctor in the loop about any additional remedies you decide to pursue.
It is critical to use any supplements only as directed and with the proper dosage. Check with your doctor to make sure they will not negatively interact with any medication you are currently taking.
