Spinal decay is a degenerative process that worsens with time. If neglected or simply ignored, this crippling condition quietly progresses, without obvious symptoms.
It starts with some type of uncorrected trauma to the spine. A slip or a fall, a car accident, learning to walk, etc. The first phase of spinal decay is revealed as a loss of proper spinal curve or a reduced ability to turn and bend. Other areas of the spine often compensate, starting a chain reaction of health problems.
Left uncorrected, the body responds by depositing calcium onto the affected joint surfaces, ligaments and connective tissues. This second phase of decay is the results of the body's attempt to stabilize and "splint" the malfunctioning spinal joint.
