A degenerate disc is, of itself, not the issue. The problem really is how it affects you. It is the symptoms which require assessment and treatment. Treatment depends upon the symptoms, your age and any other associated problems you may have. It may be as simple as an exercise program - the "core" program, all the way through to surgery. Surgery may take different forms, again depending on other factors. Your treatment options are best discussed with your specialist. I hope this helps.
