Chondroprotective…a beautiful word to your
Severna Park chiropractor who is all about protecting the cartilage of
Severna Park back pain and spine-related pain sufferers as
well as Severna Park knee pain sufferers with
osteoarthritis. When such pain rises, a decrease
in beneficial nutrients often accompanies it. Fortunately,
chiropractic care options at Back And Neck Care Center like spinal manipulation, exercise, and nutrition are
protective as well as alleviating.
Chondro describes cartilage while protective
means, well, protective. When caring for musculoskeletal pain
like Severna Parkback pain or knee pain, chondroprotective agents are helpful.
In recent studies, the term “chondroprotectors” has been mentioned.
More specifically in one study, glucosamine demonstrated
a chondroprotective action on osteoarthritis by preventing type
II collagen degradation. In athletes, such collagen degradation associated
with cartilage metabolism increased. (1) Back And Neck Care Center
encourages exercise whether it’s athletic-level or everyday
walking to enhance body health and cartilage metabolism like this
Nutrition may improve osteoarthritis symptoms,
too. Nutrients like glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate have been
researched and recorded to slow the development
of osteoarthritis of the knee in many well-designed research projects.
(2) Chondroprotectors - biological agents that add to the
regeneration of the cartilage surface and joint capsule and take part
in articular cartilage metabolism – come into play when there is a reduction
in chondroitin sulfate and ongoing loss of hyaline
cartilage as observed in osteoarthritis and low
back pain. The aim of osteoarthritis treatment is to slow its progression, ease
its pain, and enhance any diminished function. (3) Back And Neck Care Center knows
well the chondroprotective nature of proper nutrition!
