Back And Neck Care Center Cares for Spinal Discs with Nutrition and Knowledge

What do you know about the nutrition of the discs in your spine? Your Severna Park chiropractor is well acquainted with them! Not a day goes by that your Severna Park chiropractor isn’t caring for spinal discs. The discs in the spine have a high metabolism that needs oxygen, glucose, chondroitin sulfate and minerals in order for it to avoid degenerative change. Let’s study how Severna Park chiropractic guided nutrition can ease and improve the health of the human disc. Its nutritional balance is delicate and quite responsive to nutrition and Severna Park chiropractic treatment.


The reduction of chondroitin sulfate  inside the intervertebral disc during Severna Park degenerative disc disease results in a reduction in tissue hydration, a loss of fluid movement, cell death (also called apoptosis), a loss of nerve growth inhibition and ultimately, the loss of disc function. Aging sees a significant decrease in chondroitin sulfate (called glycosaminoglycan) in the disc structure. This degeneration happens throughout the entire disc. These changes offer an appreciation of the potential impact of chondroitin sulfate on the disc biology and the growth of therapeutic methods for disc regeneration and repair.

Not only is chondroitin sulfate important for the health of your Severna Park disc and its ability to resist degeneration, but chondroitin sulfate is a slow-acting anti-inflammatory drug for taking care of osteoarthritis and low back pain. Severna Park inflammation influences disc health status. Chondroitin sulfate doesn’t have the unfavorable side effects of non–steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs that can damage 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. Interestingly this disc cell restorative fluid has chondroitin sulfate which is the chemical creating the intervertebral disc. (3) Also of interest 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) Back And Neck Care Center makes available a high-quality disc nutritional supplement that explicitly contains chondroitin sulfate and a daily multivitamin, amino acid, enzyme, and herb formula containing the B vitamins to reduce inflammation. Severna Park chiropractic patients find this an advantageous addition to their Severna Park chiropractic care.


The benefit of Severna Park chiropractic nutrition is additionally shown when coupled with Severna Park chiropractic spinal manipulation. The physiological effects of spinal manipulation displayed that it affected disc physiology mostly through water flow via water diffusion and molecular transport into the disc, which are important for the health of the disc. (5) Back And Neck Care Center comprehends the joint importance of supplying the nutrients of a good disc supplement and daily multivitamin with Severna Park spinal manipulation to influence dispersement of water and molecular chemicals into the disc. Back And Neck Care Center is well experienced with spinal manipulation to do this!

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