Severna Park Chiropractic Nutrition: Gut, Bone, Chondroitin Sulfate

Osteoporosis and the gut. Two seemingly unconnected conditions may actually be connected beyond the fact that they both take place in the body. Osteoporosis’ effect is often seen in bone health deterioration. Gut issues’ effect is often seen in digestive problems. Researchers today are finding links between gut health and osteoporosis’ effect on bone health. Back And Neck Care Center helps Severna Park chiropractic patients suffering with both issues!

OSTEOPOROSIS AND THE GUT HEALTH CONNECTION

Severna Park osteoporosis is quite prevalent. So are gut issues. Gut health change with probiotic use has grown to be more commonplace in recent years to help chronic diseases like autoimmune and cardiovascular diseases as well as cancer and diabetes. Now, researchers are turning to the health of the gut microbiome to deal with bone mass regulation which influences osteoporosis and osteopenia. (1) Senile osteoporosis is associated with a decreased bone mineral density (BMD) and modified microbiota. How these are associated in postmenopausal osteoporosis is not yet known. A study that attempted to figure this out did find that there was decreased bacterial richness and diversity in postmenopausal osteoporosis with significant contrast in levels of phyla and genera in gut microbiota. (2) Back And Neck Care Center sees these new discoveries involving gut health and osteoporosis as being helpful in planning the Severna Park osteoporosis treatment plan.

DIETARY HELP FOR OSTEOPOROSIS

Severna Park chiropractic care of osteoporosis is complex including spinal manipulation via the gentle Cox® Technic protocols, exercise, and nutrition. Looking at osteoporosis as a condition likely involving the microbiota of the gut, researchers are now using dietary approaches to address osteoporosis. Nutritionally, a chondroitin sulfate/calcium complex enhanced the BMD and microstructure of the osteoporotic femur bone in a rat study. It also modified the serum bone turnover marker levels. This supplement intervention of chondroitin and calcium has the potential to ease osteoporosis and its symptomatology. (3) Back And Neck Care Center is well versed in the effects of chondroitin sulfate for disc health and is eager to learn more about how it may also benefit osteoporosis.
