Spinal Degeneration

Spinal degeneration happens when discs in the spine break down over time. Symptoms include back or neck pain, arm or leg pain, or pain that gets worse with movements such as bending or twisting.

Treatment options include medicine, physical or occupational therapies, and minimally invasive surgery. Your child's doctor will help determine the best treatment for your child. Some spine procedures can reduce or eliminate the pain, improving your child's quality of life.
