DDD is one of the most common causes of pain in the lower back and also one of the most misunderstood. Many people are diagnosed with low back pain caused by degenerative disc disease but are often left wondering exactly what this means. Much of the confusion about degenerative disk disease probably comes from the term degenerative. The term basically means that the discs in the back are degenerating.
Disc degeneration is likely to progress over time and age but the low back pain from degenerative disc disease usually does not get any worse, it usually gets better over time and with the right exercise.
