Abstract

Lumbar Degenerative Disc Disease (LDDD) otherwise referred to as lumbar spondylosis commonly result in low back pain (LBP) with the chronic type having the potential to present with debilitating consequences for patients and their families. LBP at some point in an adult life will invariably occur, a large population of adults. In addition to LBP, they could present with other neurological symptoms which often define the stage of the disease.  Making a diagnosis may be challenging, but clinical evaluation with imaging modalities are helpful. Treatment approaches of LBP depend on the timing, mode and stage of presentation . It mainly involves non-operative and operative approach with a clear-cut indication aiming to decompress neural tissue with or without stabilization. Our review aimed to highlight the current management approach of lumbar degenerative disc disease. Literature search was done through PubMed and MEDLINE.
