Brooks Chiropractic Care of Brooks 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 Brooks chiropractor can do something about though! Spinal discs exhibit aging after they start degenerating. Disc degeneration in a Brooks spine may first be exposed when there’s some back pain. For some, disc degeneration proceeds disregarded until years afterward. New research points out that disc degeneration for any of us in Brooks may start as early as the teen years. Soft Health and Healing Clinic is all for relieving any pain and averting any degeneration possible with nutrition and Brooks chiropractic care.

Brooks 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 severe degeneration. Researchers analyzed 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 signifies that disc degeneration begins in the teen years of life!? Does that shock any of our Brooks chiropractic patients? Soft Health and Healing Clinic isn’t shocked, necessarily, but Soft Health and Healing Clinic is prepared to treat the teen Brooks back pain sufferer. Do you have any Brooks teens at home with you? Do they ever mention having back pain or neck pain?

Brooks DISC DEGENERATION AND AGING: 6th Decade of Life

Grade 4 was more common in the sixth decade of life. (1) Soft Health and Healing Clinic treats many older patients with chronic low back pain in which disc degeneration is a contributing factor. Soft Health and Healing Clinic realizes that older adults with back pain explain that it has affected their life, interfered with their social and recreational outlets, messed with their family relationships. (2) Back pain disturbs their plans for retirement, housing, health, and independence. (3) It is difficult. Soft Health and Healing Clinic knows this, empathizes with our older Brooks back pain sufferers, and offers Cox Technic to help whose goal is a minimum of 50% relief in 30 days with many patients attaining that more quickly than that and with a greater percent of relief. Soft Health and Healing Clinic 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 comes about the value of nutrition. Two influential nutrients for discs are chondroitin sulfate and glucosamine sulfate. These two sulfates feed the disc and potentially prevent degeneration and even stimulate regeneration of the disc’s cartilage. Ask your Brooks chiropractor for more details. Soft Health and Healing Clinic supports preemptive care any time possible!
