Palmer Chiropractic Center is all for 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 find that disc degeneration starts in the 2nd decade of life. (1) That means that disc degeneration starts in the teen years of life!?
