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
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. Pflugerville Wellness Center knows
that older adults with back pain feel it has affected
their life, interfered with their social and recreational
outlets, complicated their family relationships. (2) Back
pain upsets their plans for retirement, housing,
health, and independence. (3) It is difficult.
Pflugerville Wellness Center gets this, empathizes with our older
Pflugerville back pain sufferers, and offers Cox Technic to help whose
goal is at least 50% relief in 30 days with many patients acquiring
50% more quickly than that and with a higher
percent of relief. Pflugerville Wellness Center rejoices with our patients
as they regain 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 promote regeneration of the disc’s
cartilage. Ask your Pflugerville chiropractor for more details.
Pflugerville Wellness Center backs preventative
care whenever possible!
