Degenerative Disc Disease

The intervertebral discs in the spine cushion and absorb shock between the vertebrae. Each disc has a soft interior that is encompassed by a harder outer shell. One of the most common issues that affect spinal discs is degenerative disc disease. The deterioration of spinal discs due to this aging-related condition causes chronic back and neck pain, as well as other symptoms. Our medical team at Medici Medical Arts offers innovative and effective treatments for degenerative disc disease, offering relief for our patients.

Degenerative disc disease is common and does not always result in pain or mobility issues. This disease is a combination of deterioration issues that occur due to wear and tear on the intervertebral discs. The outer shell of the spinal discs can become brittle and fragile. The interior can lose moisture and its “spongy” texture. This contributes to herniated or bulging discs that compress surrounding nerves or cause inflammation. Age, excess weight, nutrition, lifestyle and repetitive motions all contribute to the onset of degenerative disc disease.

Symptoms and Treatment for Degenerative Disc Disease

Not everyone has pain or mobility issues from degenerative disc disease. It depends on whether the deterioration of the discs results in pressure on nerves or other spinal issues. Common symptoms can include sporadic or chronic pain in the neck, back, buttocks or legs. Some patients experience radiating nerve pain, and this can affect the shoulders, arms, hands or legs. Sitting often increases symptoms, especially in the middle or lower back.

Conservative treatments are usually effective for reducing pain associated with degenerative disc disease. Our team will perform diagnostic testing and imaging to help pinpoint deteriorated discs that may be contributing to pain. We have a wide variety of treatment options that can be included in a personalized treatment plan.

If you have been diagnosed with degenerative disc disease or have chronic back or neck pain, contact Medici Medical Arts today. We have two clinics in the Atlanta area to serve our patients. Call today to schedule your appointment at one of our locations.

Dr. Dosanjh Patient

Thoroughly appreciated the medical services provided by Dr. Dosanjh. Dr. Dosanjh is very confident in his patient care and concern. I would definitely refer others and have been telling others about my experience at Medici Medical Arts both Kennesaw and Buckhead. I wish he took my insurance, as I have injuries not related to my work incident for which I was seeing Dr. Dosanjh. Thank you so very much, Dr. Dosanjh! The staff is warm, welcoming and cheerful and most helpful.

Meredith

Dr. Dosanjh is a very smart, caring doctor who is highly skilled in his field. He spends whatever time is necessary to "hear" his patients and to explain the proper and best results course of action. I have a very complicated head and neck injury, so it was essential to me to have someone who truly listened with undivided attention, and thought outside the box when necessary. His staff is exemplary. They could not be more helpful and thoughtful. Lucy in particular is a gift of sunshine.

Jill C.

Dr. Sonny is the best! He has done more for me in 2 months than my previous doctor did in 14 years! If you truly want to get out of pain, then contact Dr. Sonny immediately! I just cannot reiterate how incredible a doctor he is! For that matter, his entire staff is warm and inviting! And to top it off, as a patient you get free use of their amazing gym. Highly, highly, highly recommend Dr. Sonny!

After a major car accident I saw Dr. Sonny for my neck & back pain. He was very knowledgeable about treatment options & really listened to all my concerns. Trigger point injections are helping me currently & I will continue to come back to Dr. Sonny.

Christina S.

I am thrilled with the care I have received from Dr. Dosanjh. He has a fabulous staff that is caring and attentive. I had serious back pain that was hindering my quality of life. Now I am on my way to being discharged. I am very thankful for all they did for me. I will not miss the pain I was in but there is no doubt that l will miss them.
