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

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 talk about experiencing back pain or neck pain?

Malverne DISC DEGENERATION AND AGING: 6th Decade of Life

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 altered 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.


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!
