We all age. Our bodies age. Our finger nails age. Our spinal
discs age. Now, that is something your
Severna Park chiropractor can do something about though!
Spinal discs show aging after they start
degenerating. Disc degeneration in a Severna Park spine may first be found
once there is some back pain. Sometimes, disc degeneration goes ignored
until years afterward. New research suggests
that disc degeneration for any of us in Severna Park may start
as early as the teen years. Back And Neck Care Center is all for relieving
any pain and preventing any degeneration possible with nutrition
and Severna Park chiropractic care.
Severna Park DISC DEGENERATION AND AGING: 2nd to 5th
Decades of Life
In spine radiology, the Pfirrmann classification defines
levels of disc degeneration. Grade 1 is less degeneration. Grade 5 is really
bad degeneration. Researchers examined the MRI
images of 653 patients of all ages. Grade 3 degeneration is most usual
in those in their 2nd to 5th decades of life. It is declared “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 Severna Park chiropractic patients? Back And Neck Care Center
is not shocked, necessarily, but Back And Neck Care Center is prepared
to treat the teen Severna Park back pain sufferer. Do you
have any Severna Park teens at home
with you? Do they ever mention having back
pain or neck pain?
Severna Park DISC DEGENERATION AND AGING: 6th Decade
Grade 4 was more common in the sixth decade
of life. (1) Back And Neck Care Center sees many older
patients with chronic low back pain in which disc degeneration is
a contributing factor. Back And Neck Care Center realizes
that older adults with back pain explain that it has changed
their life, restricted their social and recreational
outlets, messed with their family relationships. (2) Back
pain disturbs their plans for retirement, housing,
health, and independence. (3) It is unpleasant.
Back And Neck Care Center gets this, empathizes with our older
Severna Park 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 higher
percent of relief. Back And Neck Care Center celebrates with our patients
as they get back 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 evolves 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 promote regeneration of the disc’s
cartilage. Ask your Severna Park chiropractor for more details.
Back And Neck Care Center favors preemptive
care whenever possible!
