West Palm Beach Chiropractic Care of West Palm Beach 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 West Palm Beach chiropractor can help with though! Spinal discs display aging after they start degenerating. Disc degeneration in a West Palm Beach spine may first be exposed when you feel some back pain. Sometimes, disc degeneration goes unnoticed until years later. New research suggests that disc degeneration for any of us in West Palm Beach may begin as early as the teen years. Moses Chiropractic is all for relieving any pain and averting any degeneration possible with nutrition and West Palm Beach chiropractic care.

West Palm Beach 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 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’s 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 West Palm Beach chiropractic patients? Moses Chiropractic is not shocked, necessarily, but Moses Chiropractic is ready to treat the teen West Palm Beach back pain sufferer. Do you have any West Palm Beach teens at home with you? Do they ever talk about experiencing back pain or neck pain?

West Palm Beach DISC DEGENERATION AND AGING: 6th Decade of Life

Grade 4 was more common in the sixth decade of life. (1) Moses Chiropractic sees many older patients with chronic low back pain in which disc degeneration is part of the problem. Moses Chiropractic knows that older adults with back pain explain that it has affected 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. Moses Chiropractic gets this, empathizes with our older West Palm Beach back pain sufferers, and offers Cox Technic to help whose goal is a minimum of 50% relief in 30 days with many patients getting 50% more quickly than that and with a higher percent of relief. Moses Chiropractic rejoices with our patients as they regain some independence and back pain relief.


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 positive 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 West Palm Beach chiropractor for more details. Moses Chiropractic supports preemptive care whenever possible!
