Fort Wayne Chiropractic Care of Fort Wayne Degenerated Discs Starts with Understanding and Nutritional Protection

March 06, 2018

We all age. Our bodies age. Our finger nails age. Our spinal discs age. Now, that is something your Fort Wayne chiropractor can do something about though! Spinal discs exhibit aging when they start degenerating. Disc degeneration in a Fort Wayne spine may first be revealed once there is some back pain. Sometimes, disc degeneration goes disregarded until years afterward. New research reveals 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 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 examined the MRI images of 653 patients of all ages. Grade 3 degeneration is very usual in those in their 2nd to 5th decades of life. It is stated to be “natural” to see disc degeneration start in the 2nd decade of life. (1) That signifies that disc degeneration begins in the teen years of life!? Does that shock any of our Fort Wayne chiropractic patients? Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc isn’t shocked, necessarily, but Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc is ready to treat 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 of Life

Grade 4 was more common 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 part of the problem. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc realizes that older adults with back pain feel it has altered their life, interfered with their social and recreational outlets, complicated their family relationships. (2) Back pain disturbs their plans for retirement, housing, health, and independence. (3) It is tough. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc 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 attaining 50% more quickly than that and with a greater percent of relief. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc celebrates with our patients as they get back some independence and back pain relief.


Feed your discs early and often. Disc degeneration starts 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 feed the disc and potentially prevent degeneration and even stimulate regeneration of the disc’s cartilage. Ask your Fort Wayne chiropractor for more details. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc backs proactive care any time possible!
