Chondroprotective…a beautiful word to your
New Roads chiropractor who is all about protecting the cartilage of
New Roads back pain and spine-related pain sufferers in addition to New Roads knee pain sufferers with
osteoarthritis. When such pain arises, a decrease
in beneficial nutrients often follows. Fortunately,
chiropractic care options at New Roads Chiropractic Center 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 New Roadsback pain or knee pain, chondroprotective agents are valuable.
In newer 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 associated
with cartilage metabolism increased. (1) New Roads Chiropractic Center
suggests exercise whether it’s athletic-level or everyday
walking to enhance body health and cartilage metabolism as this
Nutrition may improve osteoarthritis indications,
too. Nutrients like glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate have been
researched and documented 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 participate
in articular cartilage metabolism – come into play when there is a decrease
in chondroitin sulfate and ongoing loss of hyaline
cartilage as observed in osteoarthritis and low
back pain. The goal of treatment of
osteoarthritis is to reduce its progression, ease
its pain, and improve any diminished function. (3) New Roads Chiropractic Center understands
well the chondroprotective nature of proper nutrition!
