Minster Chiropractic Care of Minster 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 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 of Life

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.

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!
