We all age. Our bodies age. Our finger nails age. Our spinal
discs age. Now, that is something your
San Jose chiropractor can help with though!
Spinal discs display aging after they start
degenerating. Disc degeneration in a San Jose spine may first be revealed
when there is some back pain. Sometimes, disc degeneration proceeds ignored
until years later. New research reveals
that disc degeneration for any of us in San Jose may start
as early as the teen years. McMurray Chiropractic Solutions is all for easing
any pain and preventing any degeneration possible with nutrition
and San Jose chiropractic care.
San Jose 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 is stated
to be “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 San Jose chiropractic patients? McMurray Chiropractic Solutions
is not shocked, necessarily, but McMurray Chiropractic Solutions is ready
to treat the teen San Jose back pain sufferer. Do you
have any San Jose teens at home
with you? Do they ever talk about having back
pain or neck pain?
San Jose DISC DEGENERATION AND AGING: 6th Decade
Grade 4 was more usual in the sixth decade
of life. (1) McMurray Chiropractic Solutions sees many older
patients with chronic low back pain in which disc degeneration is part of the problem. McMurray Chiropractic Solutions knows
that older adults with back pain express it has changed
their life, restricted their social and recreational
outlets, complicated their family relationships. (2) Back
pain disrupts their plans for retirement, housing,
health, and independence. (3) It is unpleasant.
McMurray Chiropractic Solutions understands this, empathizes with our older
San Jose back pain sufferers, and uses Cox Technic to help whose
goal is at least 50% relief in 30 days with many patients attaining
that more quickly than that and with a higher
percent of relief. McMurray Chiropractic Solutions celebrates with our patients
as they reclaim 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 comes about the value of nutrition. Two influential
nutrients for discs are chondroitin sulfate and glucosamine sulfate. These two
sulfates feed the disc and potentially avert
degeneration and even stimulate regeneration of the disc’s
cartilage. Ask your San Jose chiropractor for more details.

care any time possible!
