“Oh, I don’t think I can do that. My back’s acting up today.” This remark isn’t just announced by the elderly. Young people say it, too, and not just to get out of going to work or cleaning the house!
Disc degeneration shows up in the young and the older person. Malverne Health & Wellness observe that young people with degenerative disc disease declare more severe lower back pain symptoms. (2) 80% of both older and younger people with disc degeneration have a loss of glucose inside the disc which ends in cell death. (1) Not good when your discs are degenerating! But, don’t let the statistics alarm you. Malverne Health & Wellness offers chiropractic care and treatment plans to help its Malverne patients find pain relief.
Though degenerative disc disease was found in a third of young people who reported no back pain, those who had more pain also had more disc degeneration. That makes sense! It also suggests that the pain they feel is probably due to the disc itself. Malverne Health & Wellness helps discs!
Now, the disc in the spine counts on nutrients it gets from surrounding blood vessels to stay healthy. A degenerated disc is deformed and loses its nutrient content. Poor nutrition leads to disc degeneration and results in pain. Malverne’s chiropractic treatment relieves pain for many Malverne residents who battle the effects of disc degeneration and degenerative disc disease with gentle chiropractic care.
Malverne Health & Wellness’s chiropractor uses gentle, non-force chiropractic adjusting, like Cox Technic, to reduce inflammation, improve spinal motion and promote the nutritional flow from the blood supply to the disc.
