Is there a link between Perthes disease and degenerative dis
Patient :Is there a link between Perthes disease and degenerative disc disease? I has Perthes disease as a child, and have L5S1 disc degeneration with sciatic. My back pain is unbearable. I am an 18 year old ballerina. I am doing a project for my anatomy class about injuries and risk assessment etc., and wanted to propose the possibility that the two conditions are related. Is this possible?
