    What can you do for someone who survived child abuse that left them with no disks and very little mobility at 47? The pain is immense, mostly it’s the rapid loss of mobility and strength that worry me the most. Is there any hope besides injections for the pain? My L1 and L2 are the worst, but my entire spine has been affected.

    Disc height loss can occur from wear due to impact or from genetics. Weakness is unusual for disc disease unless there is nerve compression or pain inhibition. There is no “cure” but there is treatment from conservative measures (preferred-see https://neckandback.com/treatments/conservative-treatment-mechanical-lower-back-disorders/) to some surgical measures.
