We all age. Our bodies age. Our finger nails age. Our spinal discs age. Now, there’s something your Southern New Hampshire chiropractor can do something about though! Spinal discs display aging after they start degenerating. Disc degeneration in a Southern New Hampshire spine may first be exposed once there is some back pain. Occasionally, disc degeneration proceeds disregarded until years later. New research points out that disc degeneration for any of us in Southern New Hampshire may begin as early as the teen years. New Hampshire Spine and Sport is all about relieving any pain and averting any degeneration possible with nutrition and Southern New Hampshire chiropractic care.
Southern New Hampshire 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’s declared “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!?
