Common Spine Conditions

Degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis and kyphosis are the most common spine conditions. Dr. Ronald Tolchin, Medical Director of the Baptist Health Center for Spine Care, says degenerative disc disease happens with the narrowing of the discs, they are irregular, the cartilage in between is thinned out, and the gel inside the disc is dried out.

About kyphosis, he explains it is another example when we start to slouch and bend forward, and the spine takes a different type of curvature.
