Degenerative Disc Disease: Cause and Treatment in Malaysia

Degenerative Disc Disease

What causes Degenerative Disc Disease? 

Degenerative Disc Disease or DDD is caused when the accumulated stresses on the spine damage the inner structures of the spinal discs. Damage to the spinal disc structures occurs due to an increase in the hydrostatic pressure. Hydrostatic pressure increases when blood flow is restricted or diminished. The video below will help you understand spinal disc health and how it gets damaged.


Spinal discs are the most essential of all components in your spine. They bear weight, sperate, and connect the spine together to provide you the mobility you need in your daily life. When spinal degree, they lead to tears and herniations. Degenerated discs also place enormous amounts of stress on your spinal joints and spinal muscles. The collective impact of a degenerated disc in your lower back can lead to paralysis.

What is Degenerative Discs Disease and how it impacts your back?

Degenerative disc disease of the lumbar spine is one of the most common causes that is associated with lower back pain. It has been shown that the degeneration and deterioration of the lumbar disc can lead to an asymptomatic lower back condition. Progressive degenerative disc disease can result in acute or chronic back pain with an associated clinical instability of the spinal segments. This can lead to abnormal spinal segmental movement, misalignment of the spinal joints, spinal stenosis.

The basis of initial evaluation involves plain radiographs (X-rays) of the lumbar spine. Reduced disc height and narrowing of the facet joints are common findings on the X-rays in degenerative disc disease and osteoarthritis of the spine. Osteophytes and sclerosis of the upper and lower endplates are frequent radiographic findings for degeneration. Narrowing of the lateral recesses and the spinal canal can be visible on CT or MRI of the spine. Radial or concentric tears, cystic spaces, and disruption of the annulus fibrosus can be identified with MRI, which is showing better resolution for soft tissues.


Instability of the spine results in a lack of normal spinal segmental displacement pattern under physiologic loads. Hence, there is an increased risk of neurological deficits, incapacitating spinal deformity, and pain.

According to Kirkaldy-Willis and Farfan, there are three functional phases of degenerative disc disease:
  1.        Temporary dysfunction without instability;
  2.        Unstable phase;
  3.        Stabilization phase following calcification of ligaments.

During the early phases of degenerative disc disease, there is an increased microscopical structural deterioration resulting in an increased functional impairment.
