Auburn Chiropractic Care of Auburn Degenerated Discs Starts with Understanding and Nutritional Protection

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 of Life

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.


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. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. supports preventive care any time possible!
