We all age. Our bodies age. Our finger nails age. Our spinal
discs age. Now, that is something your
West Palm Beach chiropractor can help with though!
Spinal discs display aging when they start
degenerating. Disc degeneration in a West Palm Beach spine may first be revealed
once there’s some back pain. For
some, disc degeneration proceeds ignored
until years afterward. New research points out
that disc degeneration for any of us in West Palm Beach may begin
as early as the teen years. Chiropractic Care is all for relieving
any pain and preventing any degeneration possible with nutrition
and West Palm Beach chiropractic care.
West Palm Beach 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 severe degeneration. Researchers studied the MRI
images of 653 patients of all ages. Grade 3 degeneration is very 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 indicates
that disc degeneration begins in the teen years of life!? Does
that shock any of our West Palm Beach chiropractic patients? Chiropractic Care
is not shocked, necessarily, but Chiropractic Care is prepared
to help the teen West Palm Beach back pain sufferer. Do any West Palm Beach teens live at home
with you? Do they ever talk about experiencing back
pain or neck pain?
West Palm Beach DISC DEGENERATION AND AGING: 6th Decade
Grade 4 was more usual in the sixth decade
of life. (1) Chiropractic Care takes care of many older
patients with chronic low back pain in which disc degeneration is
a contributing factor. Chiropractic Care understands
that older adults with back pain express it has altered
their life, restricted their social and recreational
outlets, messed with their family relationships. (2) Back
pain upsets their plans for retirement, housing,
health, and independence. (3) It is unpleasant.
Chiropractic Care understands this, empathizes with our older
West Palm Beach back pain sufferers, and uses Cox Technic to help whose
goal is at least 50% relief in 30 days with many patients acquiring
that sooner than that and with a higher
percent of relief. Chiropractic Care rejoices 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 feed the disc and potentially avert
degeneration and even stimulate regeneration of the disc’s
cartilage. Ask your West Palm Beach chiropractor for more details.
Chiropractic Care favors preventive
care any time possible!
