We all age. Our bodies age. Our finger nails age. Our spinal
discs age. Now, there’s something your
West Des Moines chiropractor can do something about though!
Spinal discs show aging after they start
degenerating. Disc degeneration in a West Des Moines spine may first be exposed
when there is some back pain. Sometimes, disc degeneration goes ignored
until years later. New research points out
that disc degeneration for any of us in West Des Moines may begin
as early as the teen years. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa is all about easing
any pain and averting any degeneration possible with nutrition
and West Des Moines chiropractic care.
West Des Moines 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 examined 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 signifies
that disc degeneration starts in the teen years of life!? Does
that shock any of our West Des Moines chiropractic patients? Executive Chiropractic of Iowa
isn’t shocked, necessarily, but Executive Chiropractic of Iowa is prepared
to help the teen West Des Moines back pain sufferer. Do you
have any West Des Moines teens at home
with you? Do they ever talk about having back
pain or neck pain?
West Des Moines DISC DEGENERATION AND AGING: 6th Decade
Grade 4 was more usual in the sixth decade
of life. (1) Executive Chiropractic of Iowa sees many older
patients with chronic low back pain in which disc degeneration is
a contributing factor. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa understands
that older adults with back pain explain that it has altered
their life, interfered with their social and recreational
outlets, complicated their family relationships. (2) Back
pain disturbs their plans for retirement, housing,
health, and independence. (3) It is difficult.
Executive Chiropractic of Iowa knows this, empathizes with our older
West Des Moines back pain sufferers, and uses Cox Technic to help whose
goal is at least 50% relief in 30 days with many patients acquiring
that sooner than that and with a greater
percent of relief. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa celebrates with our patients
as they reclaim 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 prevent
degeneration and even stimulate regeneration of the disc’s
cartilage. Ask your West Des Moines chiropractor for more details.
Executive Chiropractic of Iowa backs preventative
care any time possible!
