We all age. Our bodies age. Our finger nails age. Our spinal
discs age. Now, that’s something your
Manahawkin chiropractor can help with though!
Spinal discs show aging when they start
degenerating. Disc degeneration in a Manahawkin spine may first be found
once you feel some back pain. For
some, disc degeneration progresses unnoticed
until years later. New research points out
that disc degeneration for any of us in Manahawkin may start
as early as the teen years. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center is all about relieving
any pain and preventing any degeneration possible with nutrition
and Manahawkin chiropractic care.
Manahawkin 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 very usual
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 begins in the teen years of life!? Does
that shock any of our Manahawkin chiropractic patients? Manahawkin Chiropractic Center
isn’t shocked, necessarily, but Manahawkin Chiropractic Center is prepared
to help the teen Manahawkin back pain sufferer. Do any Manahawkin teens live at home
with you? Do they ever mention having back
pain or neck pain?
Manahawkin DISC DEGENERATION AND AGING: 6th Decade
Grade 4 was more common in the 6th decade
of life. (1) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center treats many older
patients with chronic low back pain in which disc degeneration is part of the problem. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center understands
that older adults with back pain feel it has affected
their life, restricted their social and recreational
outlets, complicated their family relationships. (2) Back
pain upsets their plans for retirement, housing,
health, and independence. (3) It’s unpleasant.
Manahawkin Chiropractic Center knows this, empathizes with our older
Manahawkin back pain sufferers, and uses Cox Technic to help whose
goal is a minimum of 50% relief in 30 days with many patients acquiring
that sooner than that and with a higher
percent of relief. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center 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 positive
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 Manahawkin chiropractor for more details.
Manahawkin Chiropractic Center backs proactive
care whenever possible!
