Preventing Spinal Degeneration Issues with Chiropractic

When the spine degenerates with age, the spinal bones gradually begin to deform. These changes can then affect the soft-tissues surrounding the spine: muscles, tendons, ligaments, discs, joints and even spinal nerves.

Through overuse, bad posture and/or as a result of an injury or other underlying condition, the spinal discs are the most commonly affected structures when the spine begins to degenerate. The spinal discs, or vertebral discs, primarily function as a shock absorber between each vertebra. These also act as ligaments to hold the bones of the spine together and provide mobility to the spine. As people age, the body begins to wear and tear from use. The spinal discs will degenerate from loss of fluid, causing these to become thinner and less flexible, no longer providing a comfortable cushion between each vertebra. The supporting ligaments, tendons and muscles can also begin to weaken, leading to various complications, including pinched nerves, herniated discs, spinal stenosis, osteoarthritis, and misalignments of the spine.

Because spinal degeneration occurs over an extended period of time, its symptoms can appear subtle and are often overlooked in its early stages. However, once this natural wear and tear begins to develop into much more severe complications, a majority of individuals will experience neck, back and lower back pain, depending on the location of the spinal issue.

Dr. Alex Jimenez D.C.,C.C.S.T’s insight:

Spinal degeneration is a common term used to describe the aging process of the spine. Although the process occurs naturally over time, constant stress or pressure on the spinal bones and a variety of untreated spine complications can degenerate the tissues faster, ultimately changing the overall structure of the spine. Fortunately, chiropractic care can help slow down the degeneration process of the spine. For more information, please feel free to ask Dr. Jimenez or contact us at (915) 850-0900,
