We all age. Our bodies age. Our finger nails age. Our spinal
discs age. Now, there’s something your
Toronto chiropractor can do something about though!
Spinal discs exhibit aging once they start
degenerating. Disc degeneration in a Toronto spine may first be discovered
when there’s some back pain. Occasionally, disc degeneration goes ignored
until years later. New research reveals
that disc degeneration for any of us in Toronto may start
as early as the teen years. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre is all for relieving
any pain and averting any degeneration possible with nutrition
and Toronto chiropractic care.
Toronto 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 severe degeneration. Researchers examined the MRI
images of 653 patients of all ages. Grade 3 degeneration is most usual
in those in their 2nd to 5th decades of life. It is declared “natural” to find that disc
degeneration starts in the 2nd decade of life. (1) That indicates
that disc degeneration begins in the teen years of life!? Does
that shock any of our Toronto chiropractic patients? Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre
is not shocked, necessarily, but Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre is ready
to help the teen Toronto back pain sufferer. Do any Toronto teens live at home
with you? Do they ever talk about experiencing back
pain or neck pain?
Toronto DISC DEGENERATION AND AGING: 6th Decade
Grade 4 was more usual in the sixth decade
of life. (1) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre sees many older
patients with chronic low back pain in which disc degeneration is
a contributing factor. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre realizes
that older adults with back pain explain that it has affected
their life, restricted their social and recreational
outlets, complicated their family relationships. (2) Back
pain upsets their plans for retirement, housing,
health, and independence. (3) It is unpleasant.
Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre gets this, empathizes with our older
Toronto 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. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre 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 positive
nutrients for discs are chondroitin sulfate and glucosamine sulfate. These two
sulfates nourish the disc and potentially prevent
degeneration and even stimulate regeneration of the disc’s
cartilage. Ask your Toronto chiropractor for more details.
