Severna Park Nutrition Approaches for Degenerated Discs: Broccoli, Aloe and Grapeseed Oil

Who knew? Researchers are an interesting breed. How they come up things to try is a fascination! What would make them to think “grapeseed oil, aloe vera gel, and broccoli may help disc degeneration” is a marvel to Back And Neck Care Center and surely to our Severna Park chiropractic patients, but a good marvel! They just might be onto something to deal with discs that are degenerated which cause back pain, neck pain, and disruption of life.

PREVENTING AND POSSIBLY REVERSING DISC DEGENERATION

Severna Park low back pain is quite closely linked to degeneration of the intervertebral disc in the spine.  At its basic level, the Severna Park degenerated disc is recognized for a decreased number of cells as well as change to its tissue and extracellular matrix content. In several of these studies, rabbit discs are examined as they are similar to human discs. In one rabbit study, researchers studied the degenerated intervertebral disc and its response to the application of broccoli sprout extract. They thought and their study discovered that it had restorative and preventive effects on degenerated discs. (1) In another rabbit study, grapeseed extracts were put on degenerated discs. By reason of their being natural flavonoids with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, grapeseed extracts were evaluated to find out how their inhibitory and anabolic effects would be on degenerated discs. They proved to be preventive and restorative in terms of stopping the degradation of disc tissues’ collagen fibrils. (2) In a third study, aloe vera gel was utilized. Aloe vera gel halted and reversed disc degeneration. Researchers wrote that there was a statistically significant (a big deal!) gradual reversal of degenerative changes. These changes were noted in the collagen content organization, the nucleus pulposus and annulus fibrosus cell increase, and degree of disc degeneration. (3) Back And Neck Care Center will keep following these interesting studies and see how they will apply to human use. Maybe these findings will inspire Severna Park chiropractic patients to enjoy more broccoli, utilize grapeseed, and find a way to use some aloe vera gel?
