We all age. Our bodies age. Our finger nails age. Our spinal discs age. Now, that’s something your Augusta chiropractor can help with though! Spinal discs show aging after they start degenerating. Disc degeneration in a Augusta spine may first be exposed when there is some back pain. Sometimes, disc degeneration progresses ignored until years later. New research suggests that disc degeneration for any of us in Augusta may begin as early as the teen years. Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic is all about easing any pain and averting any degeneration possible with nutrition and Augusta chiropractic care.
Augusta 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 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’s stated to be “natural” to find that disc degeneration starts in the 2nd decade of life. (1) That signifies that disc degeneration begins in the teen years of life!? Does that shock any of our Augusta chiropractic patients? Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic isn’t shocked, necessarily, but Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic is prepared to help the teen Augusta back pain sufferer. Do you have any Augusta teens at home with you? Do they ever talk about having back pain or neck pain?
Augusta DISC DEGENERATION AND AGING: 6th Decade of Life
Grade 4 was more common in the 6th decade of life. (1) Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic takes care of many older patients with chronic low back pain in which disc degeneration is part of the problem. Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic knows that older adults with back pain explain that it has changed their life, interfered with their social and recreational outlets, complicated their family relationships. (2) Back pain disrupts their plans for retirement, housing, health, and independence. (3) It’s difficult. Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic understands this, empathizes with our older Augusta back pain sufferers, and uses Cox Technic to help whose goal is at least 50% relief in 30 days with many patients acquiring 50% more quickly than that and with a higher percent of relief. Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic rejoices with our patients as they get back 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 comes about the value of nutrition. Two influential nutrients for discs are chondroitin sulfate and glucosamine sulfate. These two sulfates nourish the disc and potentially prevent degeneration and even stimulate regeneration of the disc’s cartilage. Ask your Augusta chiropractor for more details. Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic supports preventive care whenever possible!
