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 refers to 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
Nutrition may improve osteoarthritis indications,
too. Nutrients like glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate have been
researched 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!
