Groton Chiropractic Care of Groton Degenerated Discs Starts with Understanding and Nutritional Protection

We all age. Our bodies age. Our finger nails age. Our spinal discs age. Now, there is something your Groton chiropractor can do something about though! Spinal discs show aging when they start degenerating. Disc degeneration in a Groton spine may first be discovered once you feel some back pain. Sometimes, disc degeneration progresses unnoticed until years afterward. New research suggests that disc degeneration for any of us in Groton may begin as early as the teen years. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office is all about relieving any pain and preventing any degeneration possible with nutrition and Groton chiropractic care.

Groton 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 studied the MRI images of 653 patients of all ages. Grade 3 degeneration is most common in those in their 2nd to 5th decades of life. It is declared “natural” to see disc degeneration start in the 2nd decade of life. (1) That indicates that disc degeneration starts in the teen years of life!? Does that shock any of our Groton chiropractic patients? Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office isn’t shocked, necessarily, but Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office is ready to treat the teen Groton back pain sufferer. Do any Groton teens live at home with you? Do they ever talk about having back pain or neck pain?

Groton DISC DEGENERATION AND AGING: 6th Decade of Life

Grade 4 was more common in the 6th decade of life. (1) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office sees many older patients with chronic low back pain in which disc degeneration is a contributing factor. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office understands that older adults with back pain explain that it has changed their life, restricted their social and recreational outlets, complicated their family relationships. (2) Back pain disrupts their plans for retirement, housing, health, and independence. (3) It’s tough. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office knows this, empathizes with our older Groton back pain sufferers, and uses Cox Technic to help whose goal is a minimum of 50% relief in 30 days with many patients attaining 50% more quickly than that and with a higher percent of relief. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office rejoices 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 influential nutrients for discs are chondroitin sulfate and glucosamine sulfate. These two sulfates nourish the disc and potentially prevent degeneration and even stimulate regeneration of the disc’s cartilage. Ask your Groton chiropractor for more details. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office supports preventative care any time possible!
