Oxford Chiropractic Care of Oxford 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 Oxford chiropractor can do something about though! Spinal discs exhibit aging after they start degenerating. Disc degeneration in a Oxford spine may first be revealed once there’s some back pain. Sometimes, disc degeneration proceeds unnoticed until years later. New research suggests that disc degeneration for any of us in Oxford may start as early as the teen years. Satterwhite Chiropractic is all about alleviating any pain and preventing any degeneration possible with nutrition and Oxford chiropractic care.

Oxford 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 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 declared “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 Oxford chiropractic patients? Satterwhite Chiropractic is not shocked, necessarily, but Satterwhite Chiropractic is prepared to treat the teen Oxford back pain sufferer. Do any Oxford teens live at home with you? Do they ever mention experiencing back pain or neck pain?

Oxford DISC DEGENERATION AND AGING: 6th Decade of Life

Grade 4 was more usual in the sixth decade of life. (1) Satterwhite Chiropractic sees many older patients with chronic low back pain in which disc degeneration is a contributing factor. Satterwhite Chiropractic understands that older adults with back pain explain that it has changed 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 is unpleasant. Satterwhite Chiropractic understands this, empathizes with our older Oxford back pain sufferers, and uses Cox Technic to help whose goal is a minimum of 50% relief in 30 days with many patients acquiring that sooner than that and with a greater percent of relief. Satterwhite Chiropractic celebrates with our patients as they get back 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 comes 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 Oxford chiropractor for more details. Satterwhite Chiropractic favors preventive care any time possible!
