Now, there’s something your Fort Wayne chiropractor can help with though! Spinal discs show aging once they start degenerating. Disc degeneration in a Fort Wayne spine may first be found once there’s some back pain. For some, disc degeneration proceeds unnoticed until years later. New research points out that disc degeneration for any of us in Fort Wayne may start as early as the teen years. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc is all for relieving any pain and averting 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 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 usual in those in their 2nd to 5th decades of life. It’s declared “natural” to find that disc degeneration starts in the 2nd decade of life. (1) That means that disc degeneration begins in the teen years of life!?
