We all age. Our bodies age. Our finger nails age. Our spinal
discs age. Now, there’s something your
Auburn chiropractor can do something about though!
Spinal discs display aging after they start
degenerating. Disc degeneration in a Auburn spine may first be exposed
when there is some back pain. Sometimes, disc degeneration proceeds disregarded
until years later. New research suggests
that disc degeneration for any of us in Auburn may begin
as early as the teen years. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. is all for alleviating
any pain and averting any degeneration possible with nutrition
and Auburn chiropractic care.
Auburn 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 declared “natural” to find that disc
degeneration starts in the 2nd decade of life. (1) That indicates
that disc degeneration starts in the teen years of life!? Does
that shock any of our Auburn chiropractic patients? Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C.
is not shocked, necessarily, but Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. is ready
to help the teen Auburn back pain sufferer. Do any Auburn teens live at home
with you? Do they ever mention having back
pain or neck pain?
Auburn DISC DEGENERATION AND AGING: 6th Decade
Grade 4 was more common in the sixth decade
of life. (1) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. treats many older
patients with chronic low back pain in which disc degeneration is
a contributing factor. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. knows
that older adults with back pain explain that it has changed
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 tough.
Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. gets this, empathizes with our older
Auburn back pain sufferers, and offers Cox Technic to help whose
goal is a minimum of 50% relief in 30 days with many patients acquiring
that more quickly than that and with a higher
percent of relief. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. rejoices with our patients
as they regain 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 is
published about the value of nutrition. Two positive
nutrients for discs are chondroitin sulfate and glucosamine sulfate. These two
sulfates feed the disc and potentially avert
degeneration and even promote regeneration of the disc’s
cartilage. Ask your Auburn chiropractor for more details.
