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

We all age. Our bodies age. Our finger nails age. Our spinal discs age. Now, that is something your Plainville chiropractor can do something about though! Spinal discs display aging after they start degenerating. Disc degeneration in a Plainville spine may first be exposed once there is some back pain. Sometimes, disc degeneration proceeds ignored until years later. New research suggests that disc degeneration for any of us in Plainville may start as early as the teen years. Layden Chiropractic is all about alleviating any pain and preventing any degeneration possible with nutrition and Plainville chiropractic care.

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

Plainville DISC DEGENERATION AND AGING: 6th Decade of Life

Grade 4 was more common in the sixth decade of life. (1) Layden Chiropractic sees many older patients with chronic low back pain in which disc degeneration is part of the problem. Layden Chiropractic knows that older adults with back pain express it has changed their life, restricted their social and recreational outlets, complicated their family relationships. (2) Back pain disrupts their plans for retirement, housing, health, and independence. (3) It is tough. Layden Chiropractic gets this, empathizes with our older Plainville back pain sufferers, and offers Cox Technic to help whose goal is a minimum of 50% relief in 30 days with many patients attaining 50% sooner than that and with a higher percent of relief. Layden 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 avert degeneration and even stimulate regeneration of the disc’s cartilage. Ask your Plainville chiropractor for more details. Layden Chiropractic backs preemptive care whenever possible!
