Tonawanda Chiropractic Care of Tonawanda Degenerated Discs Starts with Understanding and Nutritional Protection

We all age. Our bodies age. Our finger nails age. Our spinal discs age. Now, there’s something your Tonawanda chiropractor can do something about though! Spinal discs show aging after they start degenerating. Disc degeneration in a Tonawanda spine may first be exposed when you feel some back pain. For some, disc degeneration proceeds unnoticed until years later. New research points out that disc degeneration for any of us in Tonawanda may begin as early as the teen years. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation is all about easing any pain and preventing any degeneration possible with nutrition and Tonawanda chiropractic care.

Tonawanda 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 studied the MRI images of 653 patients of all ages. Grade 3 degeneration is very 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 indicates that disc degeneration starts in the teen years of life!? Does that shock any of our Tonawanda chiropractic patients? Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation is not shocked, necessarily, but Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation is prepared to treat the teen Tonawanda back pain sufferer. Do any Tonawanda teens live at home with you? Do they ever mention having back pain or neck pain?

Tonawanda DISC DEGENERATION AND AGING: 6th Decade of Life

Grade 4 was more usual in the sixth decade of life. (1) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation treats many older patients with chronic low back pain in which disc degeneration is part of the problem. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation understands that older adults with back pain express it has altered their life, interfered with their social and recreational outlets, complicated their family relationships. (2) Back pain upsets their plans for retirement, housing, health, and independence. (3) It is difficult. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation gets this, empathizes with our older Tonawanda 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 greater percent of relief. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation rejoices with our patients as they regain some independence and back pain relief.


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 positive 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 Tonawanda chiropractor for more details. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation supports preemptive care any time possible!
