We all age. Our bodies age. Our finger nails age. Our spinal
discs age. Now, there is something your
Baton Rouge chiropractor can help with though!
Spinal discs exhibit aging when they start
degenerating. Disc degeneration in a Baton Rouge spine may first be exposed
when you feel some back pain. Sometimes, disc degeneration progresses disregarded
until years afterward. New research points out
that disc degeneration for any of us in Baton Rouge may start
as early as the teen years. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation is all about easing
any pain and averting any degeneration possible with nutrition
and Baton Rouge chiropractic care.
Baton Rouge 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 studied 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 see disc degeneration start in the 2nd decade of life. (1) That means
that disc degeneration begins in the teen years of life!? Does
that shock any of our Baton Rouge chiropractic patients? Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation
is not shocked, necessarily, but Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation is prepared
to help the teen Baton Rouge back pain sufferer. Do any Baton Rouge teens live at home
with you? Do they ever mention having back
pain or neck pain?
Baton Rouge DISC DEGENERATION AND AGING: 6th Decade
Grade 4 was more usual in the 6th decade
of life. (1) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation sees many older
patients with chronic low back pain in which disc degeneration plays a role. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation realizes
that older adults with back pain explain that it has changed
their life, interfered with their social and recreational
outlets, messed with their family relationships. (2) Back
pain disrupts their plans for retirement, housing,
health, and independence. (3) It’s unpleasant.
Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation knows this, empathizes with our older
Baton Rouge back pain sufferers, and uses Cox Technic to help whose
goal is at least 50% relief in 30 days with many patients attaining
50% sooner than that and with a higher
percent of relief. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation rejoices with our patients
as they regain some independence and back pain relief.
WHAT TO DO
Feed your discs early and often. Disc degeneration
begins 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 nourish the disc and potentially prevent
degeneration and even stimulate regeneration of the disc’s
cartilage. Ask your Baton Rouge chiropractor for more details.

care any time possible!
