Severna Park Chiropractic Care of Severna Park Degenerated Discs Starts with Understanding and Nutritional Protection

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 any Severna Park teens live at home with you? Do they ever mention having back pain or neck pain?

Severna Park DISC DEGENERATION AND AGING: 6th Decade of Life

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.


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 influential 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!
