Pensacola Chiropractic Care of Pensacola 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 Pensacola chiropractor can help with though! Spinal discs show aging once they start degenerating. Disc degeneration in a Pensacola spine may first be discovered when you feel some back pain. Occasionally, disc degeneration proceeds ignored until years afterward. New research suggests that disc degeneration for any of us in Pensacola may begin as early as the teen years. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center is all about relieving any pain and averting any degeneration possible with nutrition and Pensacola chiropractic care.

Pensacola 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 examined 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 signifies that disc degeneration begins in the teen years of life!? Does that shock any of our Pensacola chiropractic patients? Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center isn’t shocked, necessarily, but Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center is prepared to help the teen Pensacola back pain sufferer. Do any Pensacola teens live at home with you? Do they ever mention having back pain or neck pain?
