Degenerative discs occur over time after repeated stress/strain on the back and aging. The disc gradually dehydrates and loses height. The normal positioning of structures within the spine begin to change with narrowing of passageways and overgrowth of bone. This process accompanies disc herniation, spinal stenosis, osteoarthritis and bone spurs. Poor lifting techniques, being overweight and smoking contribute to the development of degenerative disc disease.
