In brief: Concerning

Pott's disease is a serious infection causing fracture of the spine.
This requires a long treatment. During your care, there is no harm in caring for your degenerative disc disease by walking and slow strengthening exercises.. If walking is painful, supporting your posture with a brace may be needed for a while. Avoid lifting, twisting, or walking down hill.
