We all age. Our bodies age. Our finger nails age. Our spinal
discs age. Now, that’s something your
Sandy Springs chiropractor can do something about though!
Spinal discs show aging after they start
degenerating. Disc degeneration in a Sandy Springs spine may first be exposed
when there is some back pain. Sometimes, disc degeneration progresses unnoticed
until years afterward. New research reveals
that disc degeneration for any of us in Sandy Springs may begin
as early as the teen years. Cross Chiropractic Center is all about alleviating
any pain and preventing any degeneration possible with nutrition
and Sandy Springs chiropractic care.
Sandy Springs 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 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’s declared “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 Sandy Springs chiropractic patients? Cross Chiropractic Center
isn’t shocked, necessarily, but Cross Chiropractic Center is ready
to treat the teen Sandy Springs back pain sufferer. Do any Sandy Springs teens live at home
with you? Do they ever talk about having back
pain or neck pain?
Sandy Springs DISC DEGENERATION AND AGING: 6th Decade
Grade 4 was more usual in the 6th decade
of life. (1) Cross Chiropractic Center takes care of many older
patients with chronic low back pain in which disc degeneration is part of the problem. Cross Chiropractic Center realizes
that older adults with back pain explain that it has affected
their life, restricted 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.
Cross Chiropractic Center gets this, empathizes with our older
Sandy Springs 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 sooner than that and with a greater
percent of relief. Cross Chiropractic Center celebrates with our patients
as they get back 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 prevent
degeneration and even promote regeneration of the disc’s
cartilage. Ask your Sandy Springs chiropractor for more details.
Cross Chiropractic Center favors preventative
care any time possible!
