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 any Plainville teens live at home
with you? Do they ever talk about having back
pain or neck pain?
Plainville DISC DEGENERATION AND AGING: 6th Decade
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.
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 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!
