Lumbar Denegerative Disk Disease As humans age, they endure both macrotraumas and microtraumas and undergo changes in posture that alter and redistribute biomechanical forces unevenly on the lumbar spine. Natural progression of degeneration of the lumbar segment with motion proceeds with characteristic anatomic, biomechanical, radiologic, and clinical findings in lumbar degenerative disk disease (LDDD).
