Fernandina Beach Chiropractic Care of Fernandina Beach 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 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 you have any Fernandina Beach teens at home with you? Do they ever talk about having back pain or neck pain?

Fernandina Beach DISC DEGENERATION AND AGING: 6th Decade of Life

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.
