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 you
have any Groton teens at home
with you? Do they ever talk about having back
pain or neck pain?
Groton DISC DEGENERATION AND AGING: 6th Decade
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
that 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!
