Largo Chiropractic Care of Largo 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 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?


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.

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.
