New Roads Chiropractic Care of New Roads Degenerated Discs Starts with Understanding and Nutritional Protection

We all age. Our bodies age. Our finger nails age. Our spinal discs age. Now, that’s something your New Roads chiropractor can do something about though! Spinal discs display aging after they start degenerating. Disc degeneration in a New Roads spine may first be exposed once there is some back pain. For some, disc degeneration progresses ignored until years later. New research reveals that disc degeneration for any of us in New Roads may start as early as the teen years. New Roads Chiropractic Center is all for alleviating any pain and preventing any degeneration possible with nutrition and New Roads chiropractic care.

New Roads DISC DEGENERATION AND AGING: 2nd to 5th Decades of Life

In spine radiology, the Pfirrmann classification differentiates levels of disc degeneration. Grade 1 is less degeneration. Grade 5 is severe degeneration. Researchers examined the MRI images of 653 patients of all ages. Grade 3 degeneration is most common in those in their 2nd to 5th decades of life. It is stated to be “natural” to see disc degeneration start in the 2nd decade of life. (1) That means that disc degeneration begins in the teen years of life!? Does that shock any of our New Roads chiropractic patients? New Roads Chiropractic Center isn’t shocked, necessarily, but New Roads Chiropractic Center is ready to treat the teen New Roads back pain sufferer. Do any New Roads teens live at home with you? Do they ever mention experiencing back pain or neck pain?

New Roads DISC DEGENERATION AND AGING: 6th Decade of Life

Grade 4 was more usual in the 6th decade of life. (1) New Roads Chiropractic Center takes care of many older patients with chronic low back pain in which disc degeneration plays a role. New Roads Chiropractic Center understands that older adults with back pain explain that it has altered their life, interfered with their social and recreational outlets, complicated their family relationships. (2) Back pain upsets their plans for retirement, housing, health, and independence. (3) It’s difficult. New Roads Chiropractic Center understands this, empathizes with our older New Roads back pain sufferers, and offers Cox Technic to help whose goal is at least 50% relief in 30 days with many patients getting that more quickly than that and with a greater percent of relief. New Roads Chiropractic Center rejoices with our patients as they reclaim some independence and back pain relief.


Feed your discs early and often. Disc degeneration starts in the 2nd decade of life! More and more news comes about the value of nutrition. Two positive nutrients for discs are chondroitin sulfate and glucosamine sulfate. These two sulfates nourish the disc and potentially avert degeneration and even stimulate regeneration of the disc’s cartilage. Ask your New Roads chiropractor for more details. New Roads Chiropractic Center backs proactive care any time possible!
