We all age. Our bodies age. Our finger nails age. Our spinal
discs age. Now, that is something your
Vancouver chiropractor can do something about though!
Spinal discs exhibit aging when they start
degenerating. Disc degeneration in a Vancouver spine may first be found
once you feel some back pain. Sometimes, disc degeneration goes ignored
until years later. New research reveals
that disc degeneration for any of us in Vancouver may begin
as early as the teen years. Vancouver Spine Care Centre is all about relieving
any pain and averting any degeneration possible with nutrition
and Vancouver chiropractic care.
Vancouver 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 analyzed 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 indicates
that disc degeneration begins in the teen years of life!? Does
that shock any of our Vancouver chiropractic patients? Vancouver Spine Care Centre
isn’t shocked, necessarily, but Vancouver Spine Care Centre is prepared
to help the teen Vancouver back pain sufferer. Do you
have any Vancouver teens at home
with you? Do they ever mention experiencing back
pain or neck pain?
Vancouver DISC DEGENERATION AND AGING: 6th Decade
Grade 4 was more usual in the sixth decade
of life. (1) Vancouver Spine Care Centre takes care of many older
patients with chronic low back pain in which disc degeneration plays a role. Vancouver Spine Care Centre knows
that older adults with back pain express it has altered
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 is tough.
Vancouver Spine Care Centre knows this, empathizes with our older
Vancouver back pain sufferers, and offers Cox Technic to help whose
goal is a minimum of 50% relief in 30 days with many patients acquiring
that sooner than that and with a higher
percent of relief. Vancouver Spine Care Centre rejoices with our patients
as they reclaim some independence and back pain relief.
WHAT TO DO
Feed your discs early and often. Disc degeneration
begins in the 2nd decade of life! More and more news evolves about the value of nutrition. Two positive
nutrients for discs are chondroitin sulfate and glucosamine sulfate. These two
sulfates nourish the disc and potentially avert
degeneration and even promote regeneration of the disc’s
cartilage. Ask your Vancouver chiropractor for more details.

care any time possible!
