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 treat the teen Williamson back pain sufferer. Do any Williamson teens live at home
with you? Do they ever talk about having back
pain or neck pain?
Williamson DISC DEGENERATION AND AGING: 6th Decade
Grade 4 was more usual in the sixth decade
of life. (1) Apple Country Chiropractic takes care of many older
patients with chronic low back pain in which disc degeneration is part of the problem. Apple Country Chiropractic understands
that older adults with back pain express it has changed
their life, interfered with their social and recreational
outlets, messed with their family relationships. (2) Back
pain disrupts their plans for retirement, housing,
health, and independence. (3) It is difficult.
Apple Country Chiropractic knows this, empathizes with our older
Williamson back pain sufferers, and uses Cox Technic to help whose
goal is at least 50% relief in 30 days with many patients getting
that more quickly than that and with a higher
percent of relief. Apple Country Chiropractic celebrates with our patients
as they reclaim some independence and back pain relief.
WHAT TO DO
Feed your discs early and often. Disc degeneration
starts in the 2nd decade of life! More and more news comes about the value of nutrition. Two influential
nutrients for discs are chondroitin sulfate and glucosamine sulfate. These two
sulfates nourish the disc and potentially avert
degeneration and even promote regeneration of the disc’s
cartilage. Ask your Williamson chiropractor for more details.

care any time possible!
