Degenerative Disc Disease - DePuy Videos
Degenerative disc disease is a condition that weakens the spinal column and can cause spine pain. In between each pair of vertebra in the spinal column is a disc which acts like a shock absorber. These discs change with age and may degenerate due to wear and tear, smoking, or genetics. The gradual deterioration and narrowing of the disc is called degenerative disc disease.Learn more from DePuy about degenerative disc disease, visit http://www.depuy.com/patients-and-caregivers/back-and-neck/degenerative-disc-disease.
