At Wellness Hospital, we understand that degenerative diseases of the spine can have a significant impact on your quality of life. These conditions typically develop as a person ages and can lead to chronic pain and reduced mobility. In this blog post, we’ll explore the most common degenerative diseases of the spine, their causes, symptoms, and treatment options, and how our hospital can help.
Causes of Degenerative Diseases of the Spine
Degenerative diseases of the spine are typically caused by the natural aging process, although other factors can contribute to their development. The primary causes of degenerative diseases of the spine include:
Wear and tear: Over time, the disks in the spine can wear down and lose their ability to cushion the vertebrae properly.
Genetics: Some people may be more prone to developing degenerative spine conditions due to genetic factors.
Trauma: Injuries to the spine can accelerate the degenerative process and lead to the development of conditions like spinal stenosis or spondylolisthesis.
Common Degenerative Diseases of the Spine
The most common degenerative diseases of the spine include:
Degenerative disc disease: A condition where the discs between the vertebrae in the spine degenerate over time, leading to pain, stiffness, and loss of mobility.
Spinal stenosis: A condition where the spinal canal narrows, putting pressure on the spinal cord and nerves, leading to pain, numbness, and weakness in the arms and legs.
Spondylolisthesis: A condition where one vertebra in the spine slips out of place and onto the vertebra below it, leading to pain, numbness, and weakness in the legs.
Osteoarthritis: A condition where the joints in the spine degenerate over time, leading to pain, stiffness, and loss of mobility.
