Degenerative Spine Disorders

Degenerative spine disorders are common conditions that affect millions of people worldwide. They can occur in any part of the spine, including the cervical (neck), thoracic (mid-back), and lumbar (lower back) regions. These disorders can develop as a result of aging, genetics, or lifestyle factors such as poor posture or lack of exercise.


The symptoms of degenerative spine disorders can vary depending on the specific condition and the location of the affected area. Common symptoms include:

  • Pain in the affected area of the spine
  • Stiffness and decreased range of motion
  • Numbness or tingling in the extremities
  • Weakness or loss of sensation in the arms or legs
  • Difficulty walking or standing for extended periods
  • Muscle spasms or cramps



Degenerative spine disorders are primarily caused by the natural aging process and the wear and tear that occurs over time. Other factors that can contribute to these conditions include:

  • Genetics: Some people may be more susceptible to degenerative spine disorders due to genetic factors.
  • Lifestyle factors: Poor posture, lack of exercise, and unhealthy habits such as smoking can contribute to the development of degenerative spine disorders.
  • Previous injuries: Past injuries to the spine can increase the risk of developing degenerative conditions.
