Copy of Roseville Chiropractor Explains Degeneration with NO Symptoms!?

Degeneration in the spine can be tricky. Most doctors call it arthritis, I like to call it adaptation to subluxation. In other words, the spine hasn't been functioning properly causing the discs to thin and the body adapts by growing bone spurs. Sometimes spurring and degenerative changes can cause significant pain but sometimes it doesn't cause any pain. Either way it will affect the function of the joint and also the function of the nerve system. If left untreated it will typically worsen over time.

Symptoms or no symptoms it is a good idea to properly treat and take good care of the spine with stretching, strengthening, and chiropractic adjustments. These types of problems are very similar to cavities in the teeth, you can have one for years and not even know it until it gets so bad that it hits a nerve root causing major problem. I had a patient in yesterday who had significant degenerative changes in his spine with very minimal pain levels. At first he didn't understand but after explaining this to him his eyes got wide and he understood. He is very excited to be taking care of an underlying problem before it potentially turns in to a big problem.

So before you make up your mind that you are fine because you don't have any major symptoms, go in for a check up with your chiropractor to make sure you don't have any developing "cavities" in your spine!
