Degenerative Discs: All of our tissues undergo degenerative changes as we age and this discs between our vertebrae are no exception. I wonder why we refer to degenerative discs as a "disease". We don't refer to wrinkles on our face as "degenerative skin disease" or grey hair as "degenerative hair disease". That said, degenerative discs can be a source of pain. If an anti-inflammatory doesn't resolve it see your dr
