Can physical therapy help a degenerative disc disease?
Because degenerative disc disease (DDD) can weaken your spine significantly, you may need to work on strengthening your back, neck, and core muscles. Then they will help support your spine better, which may lead to reduced pain. Your doctor may recommend physical therapy to help treat DDD.
Exercises are very important to reestablish the normal motion and strength in the spine. A daily hamstring stretching program is key to help relieve pain from degenerative disc disease. Also important are stabilization exercises and aerobic conditioning.
What types of treatment are used for DDD?
Passive treatments for low back pain from degenerative disc disease may include chiropractic adjustments, physical therapy, TENS units, ultrasound, and massage.
