Paramus Chiropractic Care of Paramus 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 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 of Life

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.

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!
