Degenerative disc disease is a common age related low back problem. It can be a significant cause of low back pain. The best treatment for it is non-operative. Back strengthening to stabilize the spine and application of topical pain measures should be tried first.

For pain relief in degenerative disc disease, 
As per alternative medicine therapy, pain is due to imbalance in the body I.e. acid/ alkali imbalance or yin or yang imbalance
So first step is to give balancing acupuncture points and then target points, when 50% pain reduction is achieved, moxibustion, cupping, electro stimulation and seed therapy, diet tips and physical exercise is given
