Degenerative disc disease describes age-related spine changes. Spinal disorders associated with degenerative disc disease (DDD) include disc problems (bulging, narrowing, herniation), spinal osteoarthritis (spondylosis), bone spur (osteophyte) formation and spinal stenosis.

A degenerating disc may cause mechanical (movement) or structural pain. This type of pain is usually felt in the low back. Pain may feel like it originates from the buttocks or upper thighs. This is called pain radiation. In other words, the pain spreads from one body part to another. As the disc begins to degenerate, the disc itself becomes painful. Movements that place stress on the disc can cause back pain that appears to come from the disc. This is similar to any other injured body part, such as a broken bone. These types of injuries do not cause pain unless you move.

Bulging discs are common in young adults and older people, with or without back pain. Sometimes a bulging disc develops in conjunction with aging and disc degeneration. While the term “bulging” may sound ominous, a bulging disc only becomes serious if it causes narrowing of the spinal canal.
