We all age. Our bodies age. Our finger nails age. Our spinal
discs age. Now, that’s something your
Carrolltown chiropractor can do something about though!
Spinal discs exhibit aging when they start
degenerating. Disc degeneration in a Carrolltown spine may first be found
once there is some back pain. For
some, disc degeneration progresses ignored
until years afterward. New research reveals
that disc degeneration for any of us in Carrolltown may begin
as early as the teen years. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation is all for easing
any pain and averting any degeneration possible with nutrition
and Carrolltown chiropractic care.
Carrolltown 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 examined the MRI
images of 653 patients of all ages. Grade 3 degeneration is very usual
in those in their 2nd to 5th decades of life. It is stated
to be “natural” to find that disc
degeneration starts in the 2nd decade of life. (1) That means
that disc degeneration begins in the teen years of life!? Does
that shock any of our Carrolltown chiropractic patients? Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation
isn’t shocked, necessarily, but Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation is prepared
to treat the teen Carrolltown back pain sufferer. Do you
have any Carrolltown teens at home
with you? Do they ever talk about experiencing back
pain or neck pain?
Carrolltown DISC DEGENERATION AND AGING: 6th Decade
Grade 4 was more usual in the 6th decade
of life. (1) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation sees many older
patients with chronic low back pain in which disc degeneration plays a role. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation knows
that older adults with back pain express it has affected
their life, interfered with their social and recreational
outlets, messed with their family relationships. (2) Back
pain upsets their plans for retirement, housing,
health, and independence. (3) It’s tough.
Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation knows this, empathizes with our older
Carrolltown 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. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation rejoices with our patients
as they regain 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 comes about the value of nutrition. Two positive
nutrients for discs are chondroitin sulfate and glucosamine sulfate. These two
sulfates feed the disc and potentially avert
degeneration and even stimulate regeneration of the disc’s
cartilage. Ask your Carrolltown chiropractor for more details.
Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation supports preventive
care whenever possible!
