Symptoms of Degenerative Disc Disease

Increased pain when bending or twisting, “giving out” sensation of the spine, muscle tension or muscle spasms, radiating pain in arms or legs, and decreased pain when lying down or reclining are some of the degenerative disc disease symptoms.

Dr. Jose Mena, Interventional Spine Specialist with Miami Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Institute, says some movements can increase the tension on the disc and that can cause some tear, because the discs are degenerated and they can become painful.
