The first stage of spinal degeneration is when there is a minor loss of normal spine balance and spinal curvature. The surrounding features of the spine such as nerves, discs and joints begin to age quicker and are continually more stressed. This stage of the degeneration process rarely is accompanied with any major pain. At this point, there is a good chance that with the proper care, you can return to normal.
In the second stage of spinal degeneration, there is a often narrowing of the discs and potentially deformation in the bones. Your posture is often beginning to degenerate as well at this point. As the spinal canal, or opening begins to narrow, there are often significant aches and pains associated. Fatigue and stress are more common at this stage. There is a good chance of improvement at this stage with the proper care.
In the third stage of spinal degeneration, there is significant physical and mental involvement due to the level of issues here. There is most likely nerve damage as well as deformation of the bones and discs. There would a significant loss of energy and height at this point. Some reversal is possible.
In the fourth stage of spinal degeneration, most damage is permanent including scar tissue, nerve damage and deformation. At this point, the condition is irreversible. Management of pain and discomfort is the best option here.

The staff is always courteous and very friendly. They take their time to learn their patients first names for a more personal experience. I have never felt more at ease while going for an adjustment. I recommend them to all my family and friends.

Love Hoang Chiropractor Care. Both Dr. Hoang and Dr.Trainor are excellent doctors. They are extremely knowledgeable, great listeners, and focused on getting you the right treatment for your needs. The staff is amazing and very nice. Very accommodating with appointment times.
The staff here are great! They are very friendly. When I started my therapy here my pain was over 10. After a few months with them I felt much better and am almost pain free. They were always so welcoming and made me feel like family. Highly recommend.
I love Dr. Trainor and all of her staff. They have the most up to date technology, from laser therapy, the matrix machine, spinal decompression beds, ultrasound waves, etc. to make sure you get the best care and relief possible. I had been seeing a chiropractor with an older approach for years and it did provide relief for a while but the pain always came back since we weren’t fixing the underlying problem (6 ruptured discs).
