We all age. Our bodies age. Our finger nails age. Our spinal
discs age. Now, there is something your
Fernandina Beach chiropractor can do something about though!
Spinal discs exhibit aging once they start
degenerating. Disc degeneration in a Fernandina Beach spine may first be discovered
when you feel some back pain. Sometimes, disc degeneration proceeds unnoticed
until years afterward. New research reveals
that disc degeneration for any of us in Fernandina Beach may start
as early as the teen years. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic is all about relieving
any pain and averting any degeneration possible with nutrition
and Fernandina Beach chiropractic care.
Fernandina Beach 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 severe degeneration. Researchers analyzed the MRI
images of 653 patients of all ages. Grade 3 degeneration is very common
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 signifies
that disc degeneration starts in the teen years of life!? Does
that shock any of our Fernandina Beach chiropractic patients? Amelia Chiropractic Clinic
isn’t shocked, necessarily, but Amelia Chiropractic Clinic is prepared
to treat the teen Fernandina Beach back pain sufferer. Do any Fernandina Beach teens live at home
with you? Do they ever talk about having back
pain or neck pain?
Fernandina Beach DISC DEGENERATION AND AGING: 6th Decade
Grade 4 was more usual in the 6th decade
of life. (1) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic takes care of many older
patients with chronic low back pain in which disc degeneration plays a role. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic knows
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.
Amelia Chiropractic Clinic gets this, empathizes with our older
Fernandina Beach back pain sufferers, and uses Cox Technic to help whose
goal is a minimum of 50% relief in 30 days with many patients attaining
that more quickly than that and with a greater
percent of relief. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic rejoices with our patients
as they reclaim some independence and back pain relief.
WHAT TO DO
Feed your discs early and often. Disc degeneration
starts in the 2nd decade of life! More and more news is
published about the value of nutrition. Two influential
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 Fernandina Beach chiropractor for more details.
Amelia Chiropractic Clinic supports preventative
care any time possible!
