We all age. Our bodies age. Our finger nails age. Our spinal
discs age. Now, there is something your
Buffalo, NY chiropractor can do something about though!
Spinal discs exhibit aging when they start
degenerating. Disc degeneration in a Buffalo, NY spine may first be found
once there is some back pain. Occasionally, disc degeneration goes unnoticed
until years afterward. New research reveals
that disc degeneration for any of us in Buffalo, NY may begin
as early as the teen years. The Novelli Wellness Center is all for alleviating
any pain and preventing any degeneration possible with nutrition
and Buffalo, NY chiropractic care.
Buffalo, NY 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 really
bad degeneration. Researchers analyzed the MRI
images of 653 patients of all ages. Grade 3 degeneration is very 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 Buffalo, NY chiropractic patients? The Novelli Wellness Center
isn’t shocked, necessarily, but The Novelli Wellness Center is ready
to treat the teen Buffalo, NY back pain sufferer. Do any Buffalo, NY teens live at home
with you? Do they ever mention having back
pain or neck pain?
Buffalo, NY DISC DEGENERATION AND AGING: 6th Decade
Grade 4 was more common in the 6th decade
of life. (1) The Novelli Wellness Center takes care of many older
patients with chronic low back pain in which disc degeneration plays a role. The Novelli Wellness Center understands
that older adults with back pain express it has altered
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 difficult.
The Novelli Wellness Center understands this, empathizes with our older
Buffalo, NY back pain sufferers, and uses Cox Technic to help whose
goal is at least 50% relief in 30 days with many patients getting
50% more quickly than that and with a higher
percent of relief. The Novelli Wellness Center rejoices with our patients
as they get back 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 nourish the disc and potentially prevent
degeneration and even promote regeneration of the disc’s
cartilage. Ask your Buffalo, NY chiropractor for more details.
The Novelli Wellness Center backs preventative
care any time possible!
