Degenerative Disc Disease Treatment NYC

Degenerative disc disease can be difficult to manage because the muscles, discs and tissues of our back and spine do not heal in a matter of weeks like more common injuries, such as a sprain or fracture. Instead, damage to your spine, or the degeneration of discs can cause a cascade of issues that may last years. Degenerative disc disease treatment requires the expertise of a knowledgeable and experienced team along with a long term integrated treatment plan that is fitted to the phase of disease you may be experiencing as well as your body’s unique characteristics. The Center for Spine Care and Mobility (CSCM Group) in NYC can help to manage, treat, and rehabilitate your degenerative disc disease.

Degenerative disc disease, in some cases abbreviated as DDD, is a pathological process where the intervertebral discs between two vertebrae begin to break down. These discs that make up the spine are vital for movement, flexibility and general motion. When suffering from degenerative disc disease, pain can be both acute or chronic in nature.

Pain is usually diagnosed with a radiograph. The film will show a loss of disc height as well as a darkened disc area. The darkened area indicates a loss of blood flow and nutrients to the region, which contributes to the pain and discomfort degenerative disc disease patients experience.

CSCM can help manage the natural degenerative cascade by lessening and even eliminating pain with posture changes and movement control. We have developed a unique protocol of integrating multiple experts who specialize in musculoskeletal medicine.

The system of working together with chiropractors, physical therapists, massage therapists, and a nurse practitioner allows Dr. Anselmi and the CSCM Group the best chance to accurately diagnose the cause of your pain and create the most effective and efficient degenerative disc disease treatment plan possible.

I found my way to the Center for Spine Care + Mobility because I was looking for an integrated approach to treat injury-induced headaches. I used to go to an integrated physical therapy/chiropractic care center before I moved to New York from California, so I expected CSC+M to be a similar experience. Working with Dr. Schuman, Jinita, Denise, and Sandra and experiencing their targeted, attentive care is the reason why CSC+M surpassed all my expectations. My experience with CSC+M has not only helped eradicate my headaches but is helping me learn how to control and strengthen my body to correct bad habits and prevent further injuries. Not to mention the facilities are clean and comfortable and the entire staff is friendly and welcoming every time I come in. I would 100% recommend CSC+M to anyone looking for physical therapy or chiropractic work in general - why have just one form of treatment when you can have it all?!
