The most important step is stopping spinal degeneration from progressing. Then we want to improve the alignment of the spine so that we can take the pressure off of the supporting structures. You can think of spinal degeneration like a cavity. Just as the cavity will continue to worsen if left untreated, that’s exactly what will happen to the spine when there is degeneration if you leave it untreated.
