We all age. Our bodies age. Our finger nails age. Our spinal
discs age. Now, that is something your
Manchester chiropractor can help with though!
Spinal discs exhibit aging once they start
degenerating. Disc degeneration in a Manchester spine may first be exposed
when there’s some back pain. Occasionally, disc degeneration progresses disregarded
until years later. New research points out
that disc degeneration for any of us in Manchester may begin
as early as the teen years. Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries is all about alleviating
any pain and preventing any degeneration possible with nutrition
and Manchester chiropractic care.
Manchester 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 analyzed 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’s 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 Manchester chiropractic patients? Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries
isn’t shocked, necessarily, but Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries is ready
to help the teen Manchester back pain sufferer. Do any Manchester teens live at home
with you? Do they ever mention having back
pain or neck pain?

Grade 4 was more common in the sixth decade
of life. (1) Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries takes care of many older

WHAT TO DO
Feed your discs early and often. Disc degeneration
begins in the 2nd decade of life! More and more news comes about the value of nutrition. Two influential
nutrients for discs are chondroitin sulfate and glucosamine sulfate. These two
sulfates nourish the disc and potentially avert
degeneration and even promote regeneration of the disc’s
cartilage. Ask your Manchester chiropractor for more details.
