Wilson Family Chiropractic Cares for Spinal Discs with Nutrition and Knowledge

What do you know about the nutrition of the discs in your spine? Your Millville chiropractor knows a lot about them! Not a day goes by that your Millville chiropractor isn’t working with spinal discs. The discs in the spine have a high metabolism that requires oxygen, glucose, chondroitin sulfate and minerals for its ability to escape degenerative change. Let’s consider how Millville chiropractic guided nutrition can ease and develop the health of the human disc. Its nutritional balance is sensitive and quite responsive to nutrition and Millville chiropractic treatment.

HOW DISC DEGENERATION PLAYS A ROLE

The reduction of chondroitin sulfate  inside the intervertebral disc during Millville degenerative disc disease creates a decrease in tissue hydration, a loss of fluid movement, cell death (also called apoptosis), a loss of nerve growth inhibition and finally, the loss of disc function. Aging experiences a significant decrease in chondroitin sulfate (known as glycosaminoglycan) in the disc structure. This degeneration takes place throughout the whole disc. These changes give an appreciation of the possible influence of chondroitin sulfate on the disc biology and the expansion of therapeutic methods for disc regeneration and repair. (1) Wilson Family Chiropractic takes note of this to help Millville chiropractic disc degeneration patients.

ANTI-INFLAMMATORY

Not only is chondroitin sulfate vital for the health of your Millville disc and its ability to resist degeneration, but chondroitin sulfate is a slow-acting anti-inflammatory drug for treating osteoarthritis and low back pain. Millville inflammation influences disc health status. Chondroitin sulfate doesn’t have the unfavorable side effects of non–steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs that can injure organs such as the liver, heart and kidneys. (2) A source of chondroitin sulfate is from human umbilical cord which is shown to bring back the degenerative disc cells when disc cells are placed in this umbilical fluid known as Wharton’s Jelly. Captivatingly this disc cell restorative fluid comprises chondroitin sulfate which is the chemical forming the intervertebral disc. (3) Also of curiosity is a study showing positive outcomes using vitamins B12, 1, and 6 in treating arm and leg pain due to intervertebral disc degeneration and herniation. (4) Wilson Family Chiropractic offers a high-quality disc nutritional supplement that specifically has chondroitin sulfate and a daily multivitamin, amino acid, enzyme, and herb formula containing the B vitamins to reduce inflammation. Millville chiropractic patients find this a beneficial addition to their Millville chiropractic care.

SPINAL MANIPULATION PLUS NUTRITION

The value of Millville chiropractic nutrition is further shown when coupled with Millville chiropractic spinal manipulation. The physiological effects of spinal manipulation displayed that it influenced disc physiology mainly through water flow via water diffusion and molecular transport into the disc, which are important for the health of the disc. (5) Wilson Family Chiropractic understands the joint importance of supplying the nutrients of a good disc supplement and daily multivitamin with Millville spinal manipulation to influence diffusion of water and molecular chemicals into the disc. Wilson Family Chiropractic is well skilled with spinal manipulation to do this!

This study puts in perspective the role of Cox Technic procedures in the treatment and prevention of Millville disc degeneration and its subsequent disc herniation. The effects of Millville chiropractic on intervertebral disk matrix and metabolic enzymes in rats with cervical disc degeneration and arthritis revealed that chiropractic may enhance the degeneration in rats with cervical disc degeneration and arthritis by regulating the intervertebral disc matrix system and relevant metabolic enzymes.
