We all age. Our bodies age. Our finger nails age. Our spinal
discs age. Now, there is something your
Largo chiropractor can do something about though!
Spinal discs exhibit aging after they start
degenerating. Disc degeneration in a Largo spine may first be found
when there’s some back pain. Sometimes, disc degeneration proceeds disregarded
until years later. New research points out
that disc degeneration for any of us in Largo may start
as early as the teen years. Hollstrom & Associates Inc is all about easing
any pain and averting any degeneration possible with nutrition
and Largo chiropractic care.
Largo 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 really
bad degeneration. Researchers analyzed the MRI
images of 653 patients of all ages. Grade 3 degeneration is very usual
in those in their 2nd to 5th decades of life. It’s 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 Largo chiropractic patients? Hollstrom & Associates Inc
isn’t shocked, necessarily, but Hollstrom & Associates Inc is prepared
to help the teen Largo back pain sufferer. Do any Largo teens live at home
with you? Do they ever mention experiencing back
pain or neck pain?
Largo DISC DEGENERATION AND AGING: 6th Decade
Grade 4 was more usual in the 6th decade
of life. (1) Hollstrom & Associates Inc takes care of many older
patients with chronic low back pain in which disc degeneration is
a contributing factor. Hollstrom & Associates Inc knows
that older adults with back pain express it has altered
their life, interfered with their social and recreational
outlets, complicated their family relationships. (2) Back
pain disrupts their plans for retirement, housing,
health, and independence. (3) It’s unpleasant.
Hollstrom & Associates Inc knows this, empathizes with our older
Largo 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. Hollstrom & Associates Inc rejoices with our patients
as they regain some independence and back pain relief.
WHAT TO DO
Feed your discs early and often. Disc degeneration
starts in the 2nd decade of life! More and more news is
published about the value of nutrition. Two influential
nutrients for discs are chondroitin sulfate and glucosamine sulfate. These two
sulfates feed the disc and potentially avert
degeneration and even promote regeneration of the disc’s
cartilage. Ask your Largo chiropractor for more details.
Hollstrom & Associates Inc supports preventive
care any time possible!
