Hey everyone,
I found this while researching "our" problem. I was very surprised to find forums, wow, what a wealth of information.
I was told I have DDD in the top 6 in my neck and the bottom 6 of my spine in '03 I think. My neurosurgeon who did the MRI says I have moderate to moderate sever. After reading the article proceeding the forums, I guess I am worse off then I thought lol.
Anyways, I look forward to "tapping" everyones knowledge on this subject.

    Degenerative Disc Disease is probably the most misunderstood spinal condition. The name Disease makes it more sinister than it really is. DDD is basically the aging of our spines. Almost every one will have some degree of DDD by the time they are 30 years old. It can happen sooner and more severe due to:
    - Tramua
    - Surgery
    - Genetics
    The good news is that in almost all DDD cases, the pain and discomfort can be managed by an approved exercise program and with NSAIDS. Its only the worst cases that need to have surgery.

    Spine-Health provides a lot of details on this subject just as it does with almost any spinal topic.

    Take a look at this information: Degenerative Disc Disease

    And here is a Spine-Health video to illustrate DDD:
