Definition of Disc Desiccation?

Answer

The definition of disc desiccation is a degenerative condition that results in the loss of fluid of the discs. It can be very painful and is an indication that a more severe disc degeneration may occur. Between every two vertebrae there is a flat jelly like disc that acts like a cushion and a shock absorber. When the jelly like substance dries out, it causes disc desiccation. The main cause of disc desiccation is strain or injuries in the back as well as the natural aging process.
