“Oh, I don’t think I can do that. My back’s acting up today.” This reaction isn’t just spoken by the older person. Young people say it, also, and not just to get out of going to work or their chores!
Disc degeneration shows up in the young and the older person. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa knows that young people with degenerative disc disease proclaim more severe lower back pain symptoms. (2) 80% of both older and younger people with disc degeneration have a loss of glucose inside the disc which ends in cell death. (1) Not good when your discs are degenerating! But, don’t let the statistics worry you. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa offers chiropractic care and treatment plans to help its West Des Moines patients find pain relief.
Though degenerative disc disease was found in a third of young people who reported no back pain, those who had more pain also had more disc degeneration. That makes sense! It also points out that the pain they feel is likely due to the disc itself. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa helps discs!
Now, the disc in the spine counts on nutrients it gets from surrounding blood vessels to stay healthy. A degenerated disc is deformed and loses its nutrient content. Poor nutrition leads to disc degeneration and results in pain. West Des Moines’s chiropractic treatment relieves pain for many West Des Moines residents who battle the effects of disc degeneration and degenerative disc disease with gentle chiropractic care.
Executive Chiropractic of Iowa’s chiropractor uses gentle, non-force chiropractic adjusting, like Cox Technic, to reduce inflammation, improve spinal motion and promote the nutritional flow from the blood supply to the disc.
