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
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.
WHAT TO DO
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.
Aaron Chiropractic Clinic supports preventive
care whenever possible!
