Degenerative does mean “wear and tear” but probably not how you think of it. Genetics plays a great role in degeneration but so does trauma, occupation, advocation and prior surgery. Accidents typically cause increased stress at a previous degenerative but non-symptomatic level.

A good spine surgeon should be able to ferret out the source of your symptoms.
