We all age. Our bodies age. Our finger nails age. Our spinal
discs age. Now, that is something your
Minster chiropractor can help with though!
Spinal discs show aging when they start
degenerating. Disc degeneration in a Minster spine may first be discovered
once there’s some back pain. For
some, disc degeneration proceeds ignored
until years later. New research points out
that disc degeneration for any of us in Minster may start
as early as the teen years. Minster Chiropractic Center is all for relieving
any pain and averting any degeneration possible with nutrition
and Minster chiropractic care.
Minster DISC DEGENERATION AND AGING: 2nd to 5th
Decades of Life
In spine radiology, the Pfirrmann classification defines
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 usual
in those in their 2nd to 5th decades of life. It’s declared “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 Minster chiropractic patients? Minster Chiropractic Center
isn’t shocked, necessarily, but Minster Chiropractic Center is ready
to treat the teen Minster back pain sufferer. Do you
have any Minster teens at home
with you? Do they ever talk about having back
pain or neck pain?
Minster DISC DEGENERATION AND AGING: 6th Decade
Grade 4 was more usual in the sixth decade
of life. (1) Minster Chiropractic Center takes care of many older
patients with chronic low back pain in which disc degeneration is part of the problem. Minster Chiropractic Center knows
that older adults with back pain express it has changed
their life, interfered with their social and recreational
outlets, messed with their family relationships. (2) Back
pain disrupts their plans for retirement, housing,
health, and independence. (3) It is unpleasant.
Minster Chiropractic Center knows this, empathizes with our older
Minster back pain sufferers, and offers Cox Technic to help whose
goal is a minimum of 50% relief in 30 days with many patients getting
50% more quickly than that and with a higher
percent of relief. Minster Chiropractic Center rejoices with our patients
as they get back 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 positive
nutrients for discs are chondroitin sulfate and glucosamine sulfate. These two
sulfates feed the disc and potentially prevent
degeneration and even stimulate regeneration of the disc’s
cartilage. Ask your Minster chiropractor for more details.
Minster Chiropractic Center supports preventive
care whenever possible!
