    ddd - degenerative disc disease is probably the most mis understood of all spinal conditions.
    in reality, ddd, is really the aging of our spine.
    most people by the time they reach their 30's will show some sign of ddd.
    some may have it earlier, some more advanced, etc.

    only the most severe cases of ddd need to be handled via surgery. other situations can be managed with approved exercise programs and over the counter nsaids.

    take a look at this spine-health article:
