Burlington and Hamilton Chiropractic Care of Burlington and Hamilton Degenerated Discs Starts with Understanding and Nutritional Protection

We all age. Our bodies age. Our finger nails age. Our spinal discs age. Now, there is something your Burlington and Hamilton chiropractor can help with though! Spinal discs display aging once they start degenerating. Disc degeneration in a Burlington and Hamilton spine may first be revealed when you feel some back pain. For some, disc degeneration goes disregarded until years afterward. New research reveals that disc degeneration for any of us in Burlington and Hamilton may begin as early as the teen years. Spinal Care Clinic is all about relieving any pain and preventing any degeneration possible with nutrition and Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic care.

Burlington and Hamilton 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 very usual in those in their 2nd to 5th decades of life. It’s stated to be “natural” to find that disc degeneration starts 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 Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic patients? Spinal Care Clinic isn’t shocked, necessarily, but Spinal Care Clinic is ready to help the teen Burlington and Hamilton back pain sufferer. Do you have any Burlington and Hamilton teens at home with you? Do they ever talk about having back pain or neck pain?

Burlington and Hamilton DISC DEGENERATION AND AGING: 6th Decade of Life

Grade 4 was more usual in the 6th decade of life. (1) Spinal Care Clinic takes care of many older patients with chronic low back pain in which disc degeneration is part of the problem. Spinal Care Clinic realizes that older adults with back pain explain that it has altered their life, interfered with their social and recreational outlets, messed with their family relationships. (2) Back pain upsets their plans for retirement, housing, health, and independence. (3) It’s tough. Spinal Care Clinic knows this, empathizes with our older Burlington and Hamilton back pain sufferers, and offers Cox Technic to help whose goal is at least 50% relief in 30 days with many patients acquiring 50% more quickly than that and with a greater percent of relief. Spinal Care Clinic rejoices with our patients as they reclaim 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 is published about the value of nutrition.
