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

We all age. Our bodies age. Our finger nails age. Our spinal discs age. Now, there is something your Millville chiropractor can do something about though! Spinal discs exhibit aging once they start degenerating. Disc degeneration in a Millville spine may first be discovered when there is some back pain. For some, disc degeneration proceeds disregarded until years later. New research points out that disc degeneration for any of us in Millville may start as early as the teen years. Wilson Family Chiropractic is all for easing any pain and averting any degeneration possible with nutrition and Millville chiropractic care.

Millville 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 analyzed the MRI images of 653 patients of all ages. Grade 3 degeneration is most common 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 starts in the teen years of life!? Does that shock any of our Millville chiropractic patients? Wilson Family Chiropractic isn’t shocked, necessarily, but Wilson Family Chiropractic is prepared to help the teen Millville back pain sufferer. Do you have any Millville teens at home with you? Do they ever talk about experiencing back pain or neck pain?

Millville DISC DEGENERATION AND AGING: 6th Decade of Life

Grade 4 was more usual in the 6th decade of life. (1) Wilson Family Chiropractic takes care of many older patients with chronic low back pain in which disc degeneration is a contributing factor. Wilson Family Chiropractic knows that older adults with back pain explain that it has altered their life, restricted their social and recreational outlets, complicated their family relationships. (2) Back pain disturbs their plans for retirement, housing, health, and independence. (3) It’s difficult. Wilson Family Chiropractic gets this, empathizes with our older Millville back pain sufferers, and offers Cox Technic to help whose goal is a minimum of 50% relief in 30 days with many patients getting that sooner than that and with a greater percent of relief. Wilson Family Chiropractic rejoices with our patients as they reclaim 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 is published about the value of nutrition. Two influential nutrients for discs are chondroitin sulfate and glucosamine sulfate. These two sulfates feed the disc and potentially prevent degeneration and even promote regeneration of the disc’s cartilage. Ask your Millville chiropractor for more details. Wilson Family Chiropractic supports proactive care whenever possible!
