Williamson Chiropractic Care of Williamson 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 Williamson chiropractor can do something about though! Spinal discs display aging when they start degenerating. Disc degeneration in a Williamson spine may first be found once there is some back pain. Sometimes, disc degeneration proceeds ignored until years afterward. New research reveals that disc degeneration for any of us in Williamson may begin as early as the teen years. Apple Country Chiropractic is all for relieving any pain and averting any degeneration possible with nutrition and Williamson chiropractic care.

Williamson 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 really bad degeneration. Researchers analyzed the MRI images of 653 patients of all ages. Grade 3 degeneration is most usual in those in their 2nd to 5th decades of life. It is stated to be “natural” to find that disc degeneration starts in the 2nd decade of life. (1) That indicates that disc degeneration begins in the teen years of life!? Does that shock any of our Williamson chiropractic patients? Apple Country Chiropractic is not shocked, necessarily, but Apple Country Chiropractic is ready to help the teen Williamson back pain sufferer. Do you have any Williamson teens at home with you? Do they ever talk about having back pain or neck pain?
