Physio-Vocab Digest Issue #1


Our word of the month is degenerative. You might have heard this before. This word is also used in disease terms like Degenerative Disc Disease. But what does ‘degenerative’ mean?

Degenerative is a term that basically means “going downhill” or getting worse over time.

Think of it like an old car that starts having more and more problems as the miles pile up – that’s degeneration in a nutshell.

Or, if you want to put it in more relatable terms, think of it like getting older – things just don’t work as well as they used to! But hey, at least we have memories to look back on and smile.

Did you learn something new today? Make sure to keep an eye out for the next Physio-Vocab Digest issue!
