Millville Osteoarthritis Benefits from Chiropractic Care

Chondroprotective…a beautiful word to your Millville chiropractor who is all about protecting the cartilage of Millville back pain and spine-related pain sufferers along with Millville knee pain sufferers with osteoarthritis. When such pain happens, a decrease in beneficial nutrients often follows. Luckily, chiropractic care options at Wilson Family Chiropractic like spinal manipulation, exercise, and nutrition are protective and relieving.


Chondro describes cartilage while protective means, well, protective. When it comes to musculoskeletal pain like Millvilleback pain or knee pain, chondroprotective agents are essential. In newer studies, the term “chondroprotectors” has been cited. More specifically in a study, glucosamine exhibited a chondroprotective action on osteoarthritis by preventing type II collagen degradation. In athletes, such collagen degradation related to cartilage metabolism increased. (1) Wilson Family Chiropractic suggests exercise whether it’s athletic-level or everyday walking to enhance body health and cartilage metabolism like this article describes.


Nutrition may improve osteoarthritis indications, too. Nutrients like glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate have been studied and documented to slow the progression of osteoarthritis of the knee in many well-designed studies. (2) Chondroprotectors - biological agents that add to the regeneration of the cartilage surface and joint capsule and take part in articular cartilage metabolism – work when there is a decrease in chondroitin sulfate and increasing loss of hyaline cartilage as seen in osteoarthritis in addition to low back pain. The aim of treatment of osteoarthritis is to reduce its progression, ease its pain, and increase any diminished function. (3) Wilson Family Chiropractic understands well the chondroprotective nature of proper nutrition!


At Wilson Family Chiropractic, chiropractic care incorporates various approaches to reduce pain and protect the body’s joints and cartilage. Spinal manipulation is the expected chiropractic treatment approach while adaptation of its distractive principles has been created for the knee for relief of osteoarthritis knee pain.
