Discs or Intervertebral Discs are the structures that separate the bones of the spine, or vertebrae. They are the spine’s “shock absorbers”. Disc Degeneration can lead to a variety of pain symptoms throughout the body. These symptoms often worsen with movements such as bending, reaching, sitting or twisting. A degenerated disc in the neck can result in associated neck or arm pain, while a similar situation in the lower back can result in pain in the back or down your leg. Dr. Boothe and Dr. Shelton will often recommend X-rays or MRIs to better understand the nature of degeneration and provide patients with meaningful treatment options.
