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
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.
Spine & Sports Rehab Center understands this, empathizes with our older
Baton Rouge 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. Spine & Sports Rehab Center 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 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!
