We all age. Our bodies age. Our finger nails age. Our spinal
discs age. Now, that is something your
Vancouver chiropractor can help with though!
Spinal discs exhibit aging once they start
degenerating. Disc degeneration in a Vancouver spine may first be revealed
once you feel some back pain. Occasionally, disc degeneration goes ignored
until years later. New research suggests
that disc degeneration for any of us in Vancouver may begin
as early as the teen years. Vancouver Disc Centers is all about relieving
any pain and preventing any degeneration possible with nutrition
and Vancouver chiropractic care.
Vancouver 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 most usual
in those in their 2nd to 5th decades of life. It’s stated
to be “natural” to find that disc
degeneration starts 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 Vancouver chiropractic patients? Vancouver Disc Centers
is not shocked, necessarily, but Vancouver Disc Centers is ready
to treat the teen Vancouver back pain sufferer. Do any Vancouver teens live at home
with you? Do they ever mention having back
pain or neck pain?
Vancouver DISC DEGENERATION AND AGING: 6th Decade
Grade 4 was more common in the sixth decade
of life. (1) Vancouver Disc Centers treats many older
patients with chronic low back pain in which disc degeneration is part of the problem. Vancouver Disc Centers understands
that older adults with back pain explain that it has affected
their life, interfered with 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.
Vancouver Disc Centers knows this, empathizes with our older
Vancouver back pain sufferers, and offers Cox Technic to help whose
goal is a minimum of 50% relief in 30 days with many patients acquiring
50% more quickly than that and with a higher
percent of relief. Vancouver Disc Centers 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
begins 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 Vancouver chiropractor for more details.
Vancouver Disc Centers favors preventative
care whenever possible!
