Spinal Degeneration
 

Degeneration Phase 1
The first stage of spinal degeneration is when there is a minor loss of normal spine balance and spinal curvature. The integral features of the spine such as nerves, discs and joints lose flexibility, are more stressed and begin to age quicker.  This stage of the degenerative process is rarely  accompanied with any major pain. At this point, there is a good chance that with the proper care, you can return to normal.

Degeneration Phase 2
In the second stage of spinal degeneration, there is a often narrowing of the discs and potentially deformation of the bones. Your posture is visibly compromised at this point.  As the spinal canal begins to narrow there are often significant aches and pains associated with it. Fatigue and stress are more common at this stage. There is a good chance of improvement at this stage with the proper care.

Degeneration Phase 3
In the third stage of spinal degeneration, there is most likely nerve damage as well as deformation of the bones and discs causing significant physical and mental consequences. There would be a significant loss of energy and height at this point. Some reversal is possible.

Degeneration Phase 4
In the fourth stage of spinal degeneration, the bones begin to fuse together causing permanent damage, including scar tissue, nerve damage and postural deformation. At this point the condition is irreversible, though great reduction in pain levels and an improved quality of life can be realized through good chiropractic care.
