Lumbar Disc Degeneration

Lumbar Disc Degeneration – It was thought previously for many years that disc degeneration was CAUSED by heavy physical loading due to occupation and sport. It has recently been frond to AFFECT disc degeneration. Recent research indicates that heredity  has a dominant role in disc degeneration explaining 74% variance in adult populations. Since 1998 genetic influences have been confirmed by the identification of several gene markers associated with disc degeneration. Spine Magazine 2004
