We all age. Our bodies age. Our finger nails age. Our spinal
discs age. Now, there is something your
Malverne chiropractor can do something about though!
Spinal discs display aging when they start
degenerating. Disc degeneration in a Malverne spine may first be exposed
when there’s some back pain. For
some, disc degeneration goes unnoticed
until years afterward. New research points out
that disc degeneration for any of us in Malverne may begin
as early as the teen years. Malverne Health & Wellness is all for easing
any pain and averting any degeneration possible with nutrition
and Malverne chiropractic care.
Malverne 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 really
bad degeneration. Researchers studied 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 is stated
to be “natural” to see disc degeneration start 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 Malverne chiropractic patients? Malverne Health & Wellness
isn’t shocked, necessarily, but Malverne Health & Wellness is prepared
to treat the teen Malverne back pain sufferer. Do you
have any Malverne teens at home
with you? Do they ever mention experiencing back
pain or neck pain?
Malverne DISC DEGENERATION AND AGING: 6th Decade
Grade 4 was more common in the 6th decade
of life. (1) Malverne Health & Wellness sees many older
patients with chronic low back pain in which disc degeneration plays a role. Malverne Health & Wellness realizes
that older adults with back pain feel it has changed
their life, interfered with their social and recreational
outlets, messed with their family relationships. (2) Back
pain disturbs their plans for retirement, housing,
health, and independence. (3) It’s tough.
Malverne Health & Wellness knows this, empathizes with our older
Malverne back pain sufferers, and uses Cox Technic to help whose
goal is at least 50% relief in 30 days with many patients acquiring
that more quickly than that and with a higher
percent of relief. Malverne Health & Wellness 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 is
published about the value of nutrition. Two positive
nutrients for discs are chondroitin sulfate and glucosamine sulfate. These two
sulfates nourish the disc and potentially prevent
degeneration and even promote regeneration of the disc’s
cartilage. Ask your Malverne chiropractor for more details.
Malverne Health & Wellness supports proactive
care whenever possible!
