Degenerative Spine is most often referred to as the diagnosis of degenerative disc disease and arthritis of the spine. With a degenerative spine, discs become weakened, lose density and strength, and joints lose mobility due to the formation of bone spurs and inflammation.
Degenerative Spine Diagnosis
Due to the expansive nature of these conditions, identifying a degenerative spine can include a number of other diagnoses as well. Most conditions can be diagnosed simply with the use of MRI imaging and a physical exam. Depending on the severity of the growth limiting the joint, patients may exhibit a variety of symptoms including inflammation, soreness, tingling or pain.
