Fort Wayne Chiropractic Care of Fort Wayne 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 Fort Wayne chiropractor can help with though! Spinal discs exhibit aging when they start degenerating. Disc degeneration in a Fort Wayne spine may first be discovered when you feel some back pain. For some, disc degeneration goes disregarded until years later. New research suggests that disc degeneration for any of us in Fort Wayne may begin as early as the teen years. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic is all about easing any pain and preventing any degeneration possible with nutrition and Fort Wayne chiropractic care.

Fort Wayne 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 studied 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’s stated to be “natural” to find that disc degeneration starts in the 2nd decade of life. (1) That indicates that disc degeneration starts in the teen years of life!? Does that shock any of our Fort Wayne chiropractic patients? Aaron Chiropractic Clinic is not shocked, necessarily, but Aaron Chiropractic Clinic is prepared to treat the teen Fort Wayne back pain sufferer. Do any Fort Wayne teens live at home with you? Do they ever mention experiencing back pain or neck pain?

Fort Wayne DISC DEGENERATION AND AGING: 6th Decade of Life

Grade 4 was more common in the 6th decade of life. (1) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic takes care of many older patients with chronic low back pain in which disc degeneration plays a role. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic realizes that older adults with back pain feel it has changed their life, restricted their social and recreational outlets, messed with their family relationships. (2) Back pain disrupts their plans for retirement, housing, health, and independence. (3) It’s unpleasant. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic understands this, empathizes with our older Fort Wayne back pain sufferers, and uses Cox Technic to help whose goal is at least 50% relief in 30 days with many patients acquiring 50% more quickly than that and with a greater percent of relief. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic rejoices with our patients as they regain 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 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 promote regeneration of the disc’s cartilage. Ask your Fort Wayne chiropractor for more details.
