Disc Degeneration: Cervical, Thoracic and Lumbar-Sacral


Patients often seek out acupuncture for disc degeneration. Over time and with age the spinal disks or “cushions” that sit between the bones of your spine can become damaged. Degeneration may occur in any part of your spine including cervical discs, thoracic discs and lumbar-sacral discs. The wear and tear of life can break down the discs, eventually narrowing the space between the bones of your spine. This process can generate pain and disability. Acupuncture is used to decrease the inflammation and pain that is generated by this process and increase Qi and blood flow, promoting healthier mobility
