Baton Rouge Chiropractic Care of Baton Rouge Degenerated Discs Starts with Understanding and Nutritional Protection

We all age. Our bodies age. Our finger nails age. Our spinal discs age. Now, there’s something your Baton Rouge chiropractor can do something about though! Spinal discs exhibit aging once they start degenerating. Disc degeneration in a Baton Rouge spine may first be revealed once there’s some back pain. Sometimes, disc degeneration goes disregarded until years afterward. New research reveals that disc degeneration for any of us in Baton Rouge may begin as early as the teen years. Spine & Sports Rehab Center is all for alleviating any pain and preventing any degeneration possible with nutrition and Baton Rouge chiropractic care.

Baton Rouge 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 really bad degeneration. Researchers examined the MRI images of 653 patients of all ages. Grade 3 degeneration is very common in those in their 2nd to 5th decades of life. It’s stated to be “natural” to see disc degeneration start 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 Baton Rouge chiropractic patients? Spine & Sports Rehab Center is not shocked, necessarily, but Spine & Sports Rehab Center is ready to treat the teen Baton Rouge back pain sufferer. Do any Baton Rouge teens live at home with you? Do they ever mention having back pain or neck pain?

Baton Rouge DISC DEGENERATION AND AGING: 6th Decade of Life

Grade 4 was more usual in the sixth decade of life. (1) Spine & Sports Rehab Center takes care of many older patients with chronic low back pain in which disc degeneration plays a role. Spine & Sports Rehab Center understands that older adults with back pain feel it has altered 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 unpleasant.

Feed your discs early and often. Disc degeneration begins in the 2nd decade of life! More and more news is published about the value of nutrition. Two positive nutrients for discs are chondroitin sulfate and glucosamine sulfate. These two sulfates feed the disc and potentially prevent degeneration and even promote regeneration of the disc’s cartilage. Ask your Baton Rouge chiropractor for more details. Spine & Sports Rehab Center favors preventive care whenever possible!
