Osteoarthritis, degenerative disc disease or degenerative arthritis (DA) are the common names of “wear and tear” on joints. This can occur virtually anywhere in your body were two bones come together. Between your bones or between the vertebrae (bones in your back), there is cartilage, or called discs in your neck and back. It is often diagnosed via Xray or other types of imaging. Although some wear and tear can be considered normal with age, sometimes DA can cause a lot of pain and force people to limit their normal level of activity.
Sometimes DA is so severe it can often result in joint replacement.
