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
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.
WHAT TO DO
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.

care any time possible!
