What Is Mild Disc Space Narrowing?

Answer

Disc space narrowing refers to the reduction in spaces between the discs in the vertebrae due to mostly old age and other reasons. It tends to be painful because the disc is pinching a nerve due to buildup of pressure as the jell holding the vertebrae together is wearing out. Disc space narrowing can be treated by performing a minimal invasive spine surgery to relieve the pressure on the spinal cord
