Degenerative disc disease is a common condition that develops in the majority of adults as a result of age-related deterioration. Therefore, it is difficult to avoid the onset of this condition. However, there are a variety of methods described in the following article that can help to delay degenerative disc disease from developing or prevent the pain and discomfort from worsening.
Nonsurgical methods for degenerative disc disease
To delay degenerative disc disease or avoid your condition worsening, the following nonsurgical treatment options may be effective:
Low-impact exercises like swimming, biking, walking, yoga or Pilates to increase blood flow and keep your spine strong and flexible
Avoiding smoking and alcohol consumption to help the discs in your spine absorb vitamins and nutrients
Maintaining proper posture and always keeping your cervical and lumbar spine supported
Managing your weight by eating a balanced diet filled with fiber and exercising regularly
Reducing impacts to the spine by learning proper body mechanics when heavy lifting
Furthermore, conservative methods such as pain medication, chiropractic care and physical therapy can also help you manage your condition.
