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 mention experiencing back
pain or neck pain?
Millville DISC DEGENERATION AND AGING: 6th Decade
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.
WHAT TO DO
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!
