We all age. Our bodies age. Our finger nails age. Our spinal
discs age. Now, that’s something your
Lynchburg chiropractor can help with though!
Spinal discs exhibit aging after they start
degenerating. Disc degeneration in a Lynchburg spine may first be discovered
when you feel some back pain. Sometimes, disc degeneration progresses disregarded
until years afterward. New research suggests
that disc degeneration for any of us in Lynchburg may start
as early as the teen years. Palmer Chiropractic Center is all about alleviating
any pain and preventing any degeneration possible with nutrition
and Lynchburg chiropractic care.
Lynchburg 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 examined the MRI
images of 653 patients of all ages. Grade 3 degeneration is very common
in those in their 2nd to 5th decades of life. It’s stated
to be “natural” to see disc degeneration start in the 2nd decade of life. (1) That means
that disc degeneration starts in the teen years of life!? Does
that shock any of our Lynchburg chiropractic patients? Palmer Chiropractic Center
is not shocked, necessarily, but Palmer Chiropractic Center is prepared
to treat the teen Lynchburg back pain sufferer. Do you
have any Lynchburg teens at home
with you? Do they ever mention having back
pain or neck pain?
Lynchburg DISC DEGENERATION AND AGING: 6th Decade
Grade 4 was more usual in the 6th decade
of life. (1) Palmer Chiropractic Center sees many older
patients with chronic low back pain in which disc degeneration plays a role. Palmer Chiropractic Center realizes
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 upsets their plans for retirement, housing,
health, and independence. (3) It’s unpleasant.
Palmer Chiropractic Center knows this, empathizes with our older
Lynchburg back pain sufferers, and offers Cox Technic to help whose
goal is a minimum of 50% relief in 30 days with many patients attaining
that sooner than that and with a higher
percent of relief. Palmer Chiropractic Center rejoices with our patients
as they regain 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 evolves about the value of nutrition. Two positive
nutrients for discs are chondroitin sulfate and glucosamine sulfate. These two
sulfates nourish the disc and potentially prevent
degeneration and even stimulate regeneration of the disc’s
cartilage. Ask your Lynchburg chiropractor for more details.
Palmer Chiropractic Center favors preventative
care any time possible!
