We all age. Our bodies age. Our finger nails age. Our spinal
discs age. Now, there is something your
Paramus chiropractor can do something about though!
Spinal discs exhibit aging once they start
degenerating. Disc degeneration in a Paramus spine may first be discovered
once there’s some back pain. Occasionally, disc degeneration proceeds ignored
until years later. New research suggests
that disc degeneration for any of us in Paramus may begin
as early as the teen years. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center is all about alleviating
any pain and averting any degeneration possible with nutrition
and Paramus chiropractic care.
Paramus 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 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 stated
to be “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 Paramus chiropractic patients? Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center
isn’t shocked, necessarily, but Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center is ready
to treat the teen Paramus back pain sufferer. Do you
have any Paramus teens at home
with you? Do they ever talk about experiencing back
pain or neck pain?
Paramus DISC DEGENERATION AND AGING: 6th Decade
Grade 4 was more common in the 6th decade
of life. (1) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center sees many older
patients with chronic low back pain in which disc degeneration plays a role. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center realizes
that older adults with back pain express it has affected
their life, restricted their social and recreational
outlets, complicated their family relationships. (2) Back
pain upsets their plans for retirement, housing,
health, and independence. (3) It’s tough.
Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center gets this, empathizes with our older
Paramus back pain sufferers, and offers Cox Technic to help whose
goal is at least 50% relief in 30 days with many patients acquiring
50% sooner than that and with a higher
percent of relief. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation 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 evolves 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 stimulate regeneration of the disc’s
cartilage. Ask your Paramus chiropractor for more details.
Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center favors preemptive
care any time possible!
