Chondroprotective…a beautiful word to your
Brooks chiropractor who is all about protecting the cartilage of
Brooks back pain and spine-related pain sufferers along with Brooks knee pain sufferers with
osteoarthritis. When such pain happens, a decrease
in beneficial nutrients often accompanies it. Luckily,
chiropractic care options at Soft Health and Healing Clinic like spinal manipulation, exercise, and nutrition are
protective as well as relieving.
Chondro refers to cartilage while protective
means, well, protective. When it comes to musculoskeletal pain
like Brooksback pain or knee pain, chondroprotective agents are valuable.
In recent studies, the term “chondroprotectors” has been mentioned.
More specifically in a study, glucosamine showed
a chondroprotective action on osteoarthritis by preventing type
II collagen degradation. In athletes, such collagen degradation related to cartilage metabolism rose. (1) Soft Health and Healing Clinic
encourages exercise whether it’s athletic-level or everyday
walking to enhance body health and cartilage metabolism as this
Nutrition may improve osteoarthritis symptoms,
as well. Nutrients like glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate have been
researched and documented to slow the progress
of osteoarthritis of the knee in many well-designed studies.
(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 progressive 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) Soft Health and Healing Clinic understands
well the chondroprotective nature of proper nutrition!
CHIROPRACTIC PROTECTIVE AND RELIEVING AGENTS
At Soft Health and Healing Clinic, chiropractic care combines
a variety of methods to lessen
pain and protect the body’s joints and cartilage. Spinal manipulation is the expected
chiropractic treatment approach while adaptation of its
distractive principles has been created for the knee for relief
of osteoarthritis knee pain. Research
support for distraction of the knee grows as to its effectiveness to reduce pain and improve
joint space width. One paper reported that it lasted up
to 9 years. (4) Soft Health and Healing Clinic is all for these chondroprotective
approaches to knee as well as Brooks back
