Pflugerville Chiropractic Care of Pflugerville Degenerated Discs Starts with Understanding and Nutritional Protection

We all age. Our bodies age. Our finger nails age. Our spinal discs age. Now, there’s something your Pflugerville chiropractor can do something about though! Spinal discs show aging when they start degenerating. Disc degeneration in a Pflugerville spine may first be discovered when there’s some back pain. Occasionally, disc degeneration proceeds ignored until years later. New research reveals that disc degeneration for any of us in Pflugerville may start as early as the teen years. Pflugerville Wellness Center is all about easing any pain and preventing any degeneration possible with nutrition and Pflugerville chiropractic care.

Pflugerville 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 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 stated to be “natural” to see disc degeneration start in the 2nd decade of life. (1) That means that disc degeneration starts in the teen years of life!? Does that shock any of our Pflugerville chiropractic patients? Pflugerville Wellness Center isn’t shocked, necessarily, but Pflugerville Wellness Center is ready to treat the teen Pflugerville back pain sufferer. Do you have any Pflugerville teens at home with you? Do they ever talk about having back pain or neck pain?

Pflugerville DISC DEGENERATION AND AGING: 6th Decade of Life

Grade 4 was more usual in the sixth decade of life. (1) Pflugerville Wellness Center treats many older patients with chronic low back pain in which disc degeneration plays a role.

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 promote regeneration of the disc’s cartilage. Ask your Pflugerville chiropractor for more details. Pflugerville Wellness Center backs preventative care whenever possible!
