Lower back pain and pain that radiates into the buttocks, hips and legs may be the result of degenerative disc disease.
Understanding Degenerative Disc Disease
Degenerative disc disease is the label given to a number of issues with the cartilage discs between vertebrae, such as:
- The gradual shrinking of discs because of water content loss
- The gradual erosion of discs because of wear and tear
- The rupture of the tougher exterior of the disc that allows the softer jelly-like interior to ooze through
These conditions may be the result of natural aging, or degenerative disc disease may result from physical injury, like a car accident or fall.
In degenerative disc disease, nucleus material from a ruptured disc or bone spurs that develop in response to increased friction between vertebrae put pressure on spinal nerves. This pressure may cause pain, numbness, tingling and/or muscle weakness in the upper extremities, lower back, buttocks and/or legs.
Degenerative Disc Disease Treatment
People with degenerative disc disease may achieve temporary pain relief from a number of products and remedies, such over the counter pain pills and prescription medications. Longer lasting relief may require more invasive treatments like cortisone shots, pain blockers, possibly even surgery.
However, natural, lasting pain relief from degenerative disc disease may come by addressing the source of erosion/cause of rupture—excessive impact. Z-CoiL Pain Relief Footwear is engineered to provide superior impact reduction compared to other leading brands of shoes. By diminishing the stress forces delivered to your foot and up the kinetic chain to your lower back, Z-CoiLs provide immediate pain relief and effective treatment for degenerative disc disease.
