San Jose Chiropractic Care of San Jose Degenerated Discs Starts with Understanding and Nutritional Protection

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!?
