Colorado Springs Chiropractic Care of Colorado Springs Degenerated Discs Starts with Understanding and Nutritional Protection

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 of Life

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.


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!
