Degenerative Disc Disease Explained [Gonstead Chiropractic San Diego]

To understand how your body develops degenerative disc disease, degenerative joint disease, and arthritis, it’s important to understand that the body is designed to survive.  Your body doesn’t do things to harm you.  Your body will build bone to stabilize the subluxation condition.  This is called Wolff’s Law (note this is a law not a theory).  In the spinal column, this is extremely important to understand because as the discs degenerate, associated with subluxation, the body adapts by building more bone around the joint.  This can further damage nerves.

This also explains why spinal fusion surgery doesn’t work for a lot of people.  The hardware creates artificial arthritis.  Other segments above must adapt as the discs degenerate, creating more degeneration.  This is how Failed Back Surgery Syndrome happens.

How do you correct this?  Surgery can make it worse by speeding up the fusion process.  Drugs can make it worse by masking the pain while the joint continues to degenerate.  There is a way to help the body slow, stop, and reverse this condition, and that is to correct the subluxation that was associated with it.  This can be done by your Gonstead chiropractor.
