We all age. Our bodies age. Our finger nails age. Our spinal
discs age. Now, there’s something your
Colorado Springs chiropractor can help with though!
Spinal discs exhibit aging when they start
degenerating. Disc degeneration in a Colorado Springs spine may first be found
when you feel some back pain. Occasionally, disc degeneration progresses unnoticed
until years later. New research reveals
that disc degeneration for any of us in Colorado Springs may begin
as early as the teen years. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR is all about easing
any pain and averting any degeneration possible with nutrition
and Colorado Springs chiropractic care.
Colorado Springs 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 examined the MRI
images of 653 patients of all ages. Grade 3 degeneration is most common
in those in their 2nd to 5th decades of life. It is declared “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!? Does
that shock any of our Colorado Springs chiropractic patients? The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR
isn’t shocked, necessarily, but The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR is prepared
to treat the teen Colorado Springs back pain sufferer. Do any Colorado Springs teens live at home
with you? Do they ever mention experiencing back
pain or neck pain?
Colorado Springs DISC DEGENERATION AND AGING: 6th Decade
Grade 4 was more usual in the sixth decade
of life. (1) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR takes care of many older
patients with chronic low back pain in which disc degeneration is part of the problem. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR realizes
that older adults with back pain feel it has changed
their life, interfered with their social and recreational
outlets, messed with their family relationships. (2) Back
pain disturbs their plans for retirement, housing,
health, and independence. (3) It is unpleasant.
The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR knows this, empathizes with our older
Colorado Springs back pain sufferers, and offers Cox Technic to help whose
goal is a minimum of 50% relief in 30 days with many patients getting
that more quickly than that and with a higher
percent of relief. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR rejoices with our patients
as they reclaim some independence and back pain relief.
WHAT TO DO
Feed your discs early and often. Disc degeneration
begins in the 2nd decade of life! More and more news comes 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 promote regeneration of the disc’s
cartilage. Ask your Colorado Springs chiropractor for more details.
The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR supports preventive
care any time possible!
