Toronto Chiropractic Care of Toronto Degenerated Discs Starts with Understanding and Nutritional Protection

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 you have any Toronto teens at home with you? Do they ever talk about experiencing back pain or neck pain?

Toronto DISC DEGENERATION AND AGING: 6th Decade of Life

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.


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. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre backs proactive care any time possible!
