As we grow older, the intervertebral discs, which normally cushion the spinal bones (vertebrae) from impact, begin to shrink, tear, and bulge/rupture. These degenerative change, which can also result from injury, often give rise to pain stemming from osteoarthritis and spinal stenosis (narrowing of the open spaces within the spine).
As increasing pressure is placed on the spinal column, pain may also be experienced in other parts of the body that are served by impinged nerves. Fortunately, chiropractic treatment can relieve painful symptoms of spinal degeneration. According to one study involving 40 men between the ages of 30 to 40 who had degenerative lumbar disease, spinal manipulation brought immediate improvements in self-perceived pain, spinal mobility, and hip movement.
