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 later. 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
is not 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
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 uses 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.
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 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!
