We all age. Our bodies age. Our finger nails age. Our spinal
discs age. Now, there is something your
Ashburn chiropractor can do something about though!
Spinal discs show aging after they start
degenerating. Disc degeneration in a Ashburn spine may first be revealed
when you feel some back pain. Occasionally, disc degeneration progresses ignored
until years afterward. New research reveals
that disc degeneration for any of us in Ashburn may begin
as early as the teen years. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn is all about alleviating
any pain and preventing any degeneration possible with nutrition
and Ashburn chiropractic care.
Ashburn 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 is stated
to be “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 Ashburn chiropractic patients? Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn
is not shocked, necessarily, but Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn is ready
to help the teen Ashburn back pain sufferer. Do any Ashburn teens live at home
with you? Do they ever talk about experiencing back
pain or neck pain?
Ashburn DISC DEGENERATION AND AGING: 6th Decade
Grade 4 was more common in the 6th decade
of life. (1) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn sees many older
patients with chronic low back pain in which disc degeneration plays a role. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn knows
that older adults with back pain feel it has altered
their life, restricted their social and recreational
outlets, complicated their family relationships. (2) Back
pain disturbs their plans for retirement, housing,
health, and independence. (3) It’s unpleasant.
Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn gets this, empathizes with our older
Ashburn back pain sufferers, and uses Cox Technic to help whose
goal is at least 50% relief in 30 days with many patients getting
50% more quickly than that and with a higher
percent of relief. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn 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 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 Ashburn chiropractor for more details.
Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn supports preemptive
care whenever possible!
