3 Stages of Spinal Degeneration
Normal Motion, Normal Disc Height, Normal Ligament and Muscle Balance, Nerve Roots Free From Interference, Relaxed Spinal Cord, Normal Function, Normal Bone Mass.
Stable, Maintain With Chiropractic Care
Restricted Motion, Minor Disc Thinning, Ligament and Muscle Imbalance, Nerve Root interference, Spinal Cord Tension, Functional Loss beginning, Normal Bone Mass, Micro Tears In The Disc.
PROGNOSIS: Fair to Good
Correction to Normal Parameters with Proper Chiropractic Care.
Cord Tension, Loss Of Restricted And Exaggerated Motion, Disc Thinning Minimal To Moderate, Ligament and Muscle Imbalance Moderate, Spinal Bone Mass, Bone Spurs, Nerve Root Compression Disc Herniation, Functional Loss Can Be Minimum To Moderate.
Correction to Normal Parameters NOT Obtainable. Only Minimal To Moderate Stability. Permanent Damage to Degenerative Discs and Joints. Chiropractic Care is Essential For Minimal To Moderate Correction of Spinal Parameters and Future Management to Maintain Most Optimum Ongoing Function.
Restricted Range Of Motion, Disc Thinning Severe, Nerve Root Interference and Severe Nerve damage, Spinal Cord Tension, Spinal Nerve Atrophy, loss Of Bone Mass Severe, Spinal Stenosis, Disc Herniation, Functional Loss Moderate To Severe, Scar Tissue.
PROGNOSIS: Fair to Poor
Permanent Damage, Correction Not Obtainable, Chiropractic Care Is Essential To Obtain Ongoing Function.
