Gulf Coast Spine Care Introduces New Treatment Options for Degenerative Disk Disease
Date:8/16/2013

Houston, TX (PRWEB) August 16, 2013

Aging is one of the most common causes of degenerative disk disease. This is a disease that causes the spaces between the spine to shrink. As this space gets smaller, the nerves and the spinal cord itself can become compressed. This can result in a considerable amount of back pain for the patient. While there are several different ways to deal with the pain associated with degenerative disk disease, most people would prefer to treat the condition in a manner that yields permanent relief. For many years, Gulf Coast Spine Care has been the go-to source that local residents throughout the Houston area have used for all of their back and neck treatments. This healthcare center has recently announced a new and highly effective treatment for degenerative disk disease as a benefit to its patients.

A New Surgical Treatment
At Gulf Coast Spine Care, patients in the Houston area can benefit from a surgical treatment that may provide superior pain relief. In some cases, the treatment can provide long-lasting relief that eliminates the on-going need to take prescription drugs for pain relief. In addition, surgical treatment from the highly skilled and experienced surgeons at Gulf Coast Spine Care can also improve the patient’s quality of life.

When many patients visit their primary care physician and are diagnosed with this condition, they are prescribed prescription pain medications to manage the pain. Pain medications are moderately effective at relieving pain from degenerative disk disease. However, there are numerous downsides to this type of treatment. For example, the relief that is experienced from prescription pain killers is temporary, and the pain will quickly return. Many of these medications have unpleasant side effects, and they can be habit-forming. Furthermore, the condition may continue to worsen over time, so the benefits experienced from pain killers may decrease over time.

Degenerative disk disease ultimately can result in a life riddled with disability. Patients with severe cases of degenerative disk disease may live with considerable pain on a daily basis, and they may have trouble performing basic functions due to their level of pain. However, Gulf Coast Spine Care provides patients with the ability obtain an effective treatment that can restore quality of life and eliminate or decrease pain. With an appointment with a surgeon at Gulf Coast Spine Care, patients who are suffering from this debilitating and progressive condition can obtain more information about surgery as a treatment option.
