"Can degenerative disc disease ever go away on its own—without any type of treatment? I'm 56, and I've just been diagnosed with DDD. Is there any chance this disease will ever completely go away, or is it a lifelong condition?"
In addition to blogging about spine conditions, treatments, and what's
going on in the spine field, our experts welcome your questions about
your back or neck problem. Whether your question is "how to" cope with back pain or about a complex spine problem, we are here to help!
Do you have a question you would like to ask our experts? Please post your question in the community advice forums.
Every two weeks, we will answer one user-submitted question in our eNewsletter, the SpineAdvisor.
