We all age. Our bodies age. Our finger nails age. Our spinal
discs age. 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!? Does
that shock any of our Fort Wayne chiropractic patients? Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc
is not shocked, necessarily, but Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc is ready
to help the teen Fort Wayne back pain sufferer. Do you
have any Fort Wayne teens at home
with you? Do they ever talk about having back
pain or neck pain?
Fort Wayne DISC DEGENERATION AND AGING: 6th Decade
Grade 4 was more usual in the sixth decade
of life. (1) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc treats many older
patients with chronic low back pain in which disc degeneration is
a contributing factor. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc realizes
that older adults with back pain explain that it has affected
their life, restricted their social and recreational
outlets, complicated their family relationships. (2) Back
pain disturbs their plans for retirement, housing,
health, and independence. (3) It is unpleasant.
Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc gets 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 getting
that more quickly than that and with a greater
percent of relief. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc celebrates with our patients
as they reclaim 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 comes about the value of nutrition. Two positive
nutrients for discs are chondroitin sulfate and glucosamine sulfate. These two
sulfates feed the disc and potentially prevent
degeneration and even promote regeneration of the disc’s
cartilage. Ask your Fort Wayne chiropractor for more details.
Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc supports preventative
care whenever possible!
