Soft Health and Healing Clinic Cares for Spinal Discs with Nutrition and Knowledge

What do you know about the nutrition of the discs in your spine? Your Brooks chiropractor is well acquainted with them! Not less than daily is it that your Brooks chiropractor is not treating spinal discs. The discs in the spine have a high metabolism that demands oxygen, glucose, chondroitin sulfate and minerals in order for it to escape degenerative change. Let us consider how Brooks chiropractic guided nutrition can stabilize and improve the health of the human disc. Its nutritional balance is sensitive and quite responsive to nutrition and Brooks chiropractic treatment.

THE ROLE OF DISC DEGENERATION

The reduction of chondroitin sulfate  within the intervertebral disc during Brooks degenerative disc disease creates a reduction in tissue hydration, a loss of fluid movement, cell death (aka apoptosis), a loss of nerve growth inhibition and finally, the loss of disc function. Aging sees a significant drop in chondroitin sulfate (called glycosaminoglycan) in the disc structure. This degeneration happens throughout the whole disc. These changes offer an appreciation of the potential influence of chondroitin sulfate on the disc biology and the development of therapeutic methods for disc regeneration and repair. (1) Soft Health and Healing Clinic notes this to help Brooks chiropractic disc degeneration patients.

ANTI-INFLAMMATORY

Not only is chondroitin sulfate important for the health of your Brooks disc and its ability to fight degeneration, but chondroitin sulfate is a slow-acting anti-inflammatory drug for taking care of osteoarthritis and low back pain. Brooks inflammation influences disc health status. Chondroitin sulfate does not have the adverse side effects of non–steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs that can harm 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. Captivatingly this disc cell restorative fluid contains 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) Soft Health and Healing Clinic offers a high-quality disc nutritional supplement that specifically has chondroitin sulfate and a daily multivitamin, amino acid, enzyme, and herb formula incorporating the B vitamins to reduce inflammation. Brooks chiropractic patients describe this as an advantageous adjunct to their Brooks chiropractic care.

SPINAL MANIPULATION PLUS NUTRITION

The value of Brooks chiropractic nutrition is further revealed when combined with Brooks chiropractic spinal manipulation. The physiological effects of spinal manipulation showed that it guided disc physiology primarily through water flow via water diffusion and molecular transport into the disc, which are important for the health of the disc. (5) Soft Health and Healing Clinic comprehends the joint importance of supplying the nutrients of a good disc supplement and daily multivitamin with Brooks spinal manipulation to influence diffusion of water and molecular chemicals into the disc. Soft Health and Healing Clinic is well skilled with spinal manipulation to do this!

This study puts in perspective the role of Cox Technic procedures in the treatment and prevention of Brooks disc degeneration and its subsequent disc herniation. The effects of Brooks chiropractic on intervertebral disk matrix and metabolic enzymes in rats with cervical disc degeneration and arthritis revealed that chiropractic may enhance the degeneration in rats with cervical disc degeneration and arthritis by adjusting the intervertebral disc matrix system and relevant metabolic enzymes.
