What is Degenerative Disc

Spinal discs are soft, compressible discs that separate the interlocking bones which constructively make up the spine.Causes include osteoarthritis, herniated disc, as well as spinal stenosis. These conditions may put pressure on the spinal cord, and consequently the discs, which affect the nerve function in your spine.
