Degenerative Disc disease? serious?

My dad went to the doctor today and the out come was that he has degenerative disc disease and that they said their was nothing they could do and he would eventually be paralyzed. I researched it a little and it doesn't seem that serious? Should he get a second opinion and go to a better hospital?

I have spoken with many different doctors about degenerative disc disease and I have found that just about everyone in the U.S has it in some form. Some are more serious than others. I would probably go to another doctor a specialist per say especially if it was stated that he would eventually be paralyzed to see what preventative steps can be made to prevent that from happening. Best of luck!
