ABOUT DEGENERATIVE DISC DISEASE
The spinal discs provide needed stability and support for the spine. Acting as shock absorbers between the vertebrae, spinal discs require flexibility and cushioning properties to work effectively. Aging factors can result in brittle and flattened spinal discs that are prone to bulge, herniation, and slipping. Degenerative disc disease describes the wear, tear, and aging changes that can occur in spinal discs, even for those in their mid-life years. When degenerative disc disease causes pain, spine instability, or mobility issues, Ospina Medical in NYC offers treatment options for relief.
The spinal discs can experience deterioration from injury or wear prematurely, causing the spinal discs to slip or rupture. While not everyone with degenerative disc disease experiences pain or mobility issues, when the spinal discs no longer function correctly, it can cause back or neck problems. Degenerative disc disease most commonly occurs in the cervical or lumbar spine, which creates neck or lower back pain or dysfunction.
"Dr. Maniam is great and you took care of my knee. My knee feeks great and i can walk again. The visit was beautiful and they treat me with respect."- K.D. / Google / May 18, 2021
"On first arrival Dr. Kohler and his staff at Ospina Medicine were warm and welcoming. He was precise in his knowledge and explained all parts of both my pain management due to previous injury, and preventative measures for future treatment. Their New York City based state of the art technology and contemporary office made me feel at ease immediately. As someone with continual back pain, and as someone who wants to avoid opioid treatment, the very nature of Ospina Medical using non-opioid approaches to pain management for me was a big bonus. The results have been brilliant, and I am so pleased to have Dr. Kohler to help me through my pain management process."- M.M. / Google / May 17, 2021
"The nicest people, the best care. I feel so much better already. Would recommend to any and all friends, dancers, athletes, who are having pain."- C.J. / Google / May 14, 2021
"Dr Maniam and his staff are excellent. Renya at the front desk is always friendly and makes me feel comfortable. There’s a real sense that they care about their patients. I’ve had numerous spinal epidural‘s and radio frequency ablations, they’ve been painless and have gotten excellent results. This is the best pain management group that I’ve been to and I’ve been to more than a few... I highly recommend Ospina!"- M.G. / Google / May 14, 2021
"I've had 3 cortisone injections with Ospina and I'm amazed by the care they take when applying the injections. I can't believe how well it works and what good care they take of me. (I had received an injection somewhere else and it was more painful, bruised badly, and didn't last near as long.) I will ONLY go to Ospina now. The staff and doctors are truly WONDERFUL. Don't hesitate!"- P.G. / Google / Apr 30, 2021
