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

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 of Life

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.


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!
