Severna Park Osteoarthritis Benefits from Chiropractic Care

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 follows. 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 article details.


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 increase any diminished function. (3) Back And Neck Care Center knows well the chondroprotective nature of proper nutrition!


At Back And Neck Care Center, chiropractic care integrates various approaches to ease pain and protect the body’s joints and cartilage. Spinal manipulation is the anticipated chiropractic treatment approach while adaptation of its distractive principles has been created for the knee for relief of osteoarthritis knee pain. Knee distractionis expanding in research support as to its success to alleviate pain and improve joint space width. A paper reported that it continued for up to 9 years.
