Degenerative disc disease is a condition that occurs due to aging. When one or more of your spinal discs between the spinal vertebrae column break down or degenerate, they cause back pain, hence degenerative disc disease. Although it is classified as a disease, degenerative disc disease is actually not an illness but a naturally occurring condition that occurs when you age.
There are rubbery discs in between the single components of the vertebrae. These discs are the reasons why you can bend your back ; they act as shock absorbers. Over time, these discs wear out as you age and are unable to provide the same level of protection as they used to.
