Vancouver Chiropractic Care of Vancouver Degenerated Discs Starts with Understanding and Nutritional Protection

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 of Life

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.


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. Vancouver Spine Care Centre supports proactive care any time possible!
