Normal wear and tear in our muscles, joints, and bones can cause pain as we age. As your spinal discs age, this wear and tear mean they do not function as well as they should, failing to serve their purpose as shock absorbers between the bones in your spine. If you struggle with a degenerative disc, we can help. At Global Clinic, we offer a range of therapeutic services to help you live a comfortable, pain-free life.
