We all age. Our bodies age. Our finger nails age. Our spinal
discs age. Now, that’s something your
La Grande chiropractor can help with though!
Spinal discs display aging after they start
degenerating. Disc degeneration in a La Grande spine may first be discovered
when there is some back pain. For
some, disc degeneration progresses ignored
until years afterward. New research points out
that disc degeneration for any of us in La Grande may start
as early as the teen years. Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC is all for alleviating
any pain and preventing any degeneration possible with nutrition
and La Grande chiropractic care.
La Grande 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 really
bad degeneration. Researchers studied 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 stated
to be “natural” to see disc degeneration start in the 2nd decade of life. (1) That signifies
that disc degeneration starts in the teen years of life!? Does
that shock any of our La Grande chiropractic patients? Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC
is not shocked, necessarily, but Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC is prepared
to help the teen La Grande back pain sufferer. Do any La Grande teens live at home
with you? Do they ever mention experiencing back
pain or neck pain?
La Grande DISC DEGENERATION AND AGING: 6th Decade
Grade 4 was more common in the 6th decade
of life. (1) Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC treats many older
patients with chronic low back pain in which disc degeneration plays a role. Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC knows
that older adults with back pain explain that it has altered
their life, restricted 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 unpleasant.
Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC knows this, empathizes with our older
La Grande back pain sufferers, and offers Cox Technic to help whose
goal is a minimum of 50% relief in 30 days with many patients attaining
50% more quickly than that and with a higher
percent of relief. Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC rejoices with our patients
as they reclaim some independence and back pain relief.
WHAT TO DO
Feed your discs early and often. Disc degeneration
starts in the 2nd decade of life! More and more news is
published 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 stimulate regeneration of the disc’s
cartilage. Ask your La Grande chiropractor for more details.

care any time possible!
