New Roads Chiropractic Center Cares for Spinal Discs with Nutrition and Knowledge

What do you know about the nutrition of the discs in your spine? Your New Roads chiropractor knows a lot about them! Not a day goes by that your New Roads chiropractor isn’t working with spinal discs. The discs in the spine have a high metabolism that requires oxygen, glucose, chondroitin sulfate and minerals in order for it to avoid degenerative change. Let us study how New Roads chiropractic guided nutrition can stabilize and improve the health of the human disc. Its nutritional balance is sensitive and quite responsive to nutrition and New Roads chiropractic treatment.


The reduction of chondroitin sulfate  inside the intervertebral disc during New Roads degenerative disc disease results in a decrease 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 experiences a significant decrease in chondroitin sulfate (known as glycosaminoglycan) in the disc structure. This degeneration happens throughout the whole disc. These changes offer an appreciation of the potential impact of chondroitin sulfate on the disc biology and the development of therapeutic approaches for disc regeneration and repair. (1) New Roads Chiropractic Center passes this information along to New Roads chiropractic disc degeneration patients.


Not only is chondroitin sulfate vital for the health of your New Roads disc and its ability to resist degeneration, but chondroitin sulfate is a slow-acting anti-inflammatory drug for doctoring osteoarthritis and low back pain. New Roads inflammation plays a role in disc health status. Chondroitin sulfate does not have the unfavorable side effects of non–steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs that can injure organs such as the liver, heart and kidneys. (2) A source of chondroitin sulfate is from human umbilical cord which is shown to reestablish the degenerative disc cells when disc cells are put 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 curiosity 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) New Roads Chiropractic Center offers a high-quality disc nutritional supplement that explicitly has chondroitin sulfate and a daily multivitamin, amino acid, enzyme, and herb formula containing the B vitamins to lower inflammation. New Roads chiropractic patients find this an advantageous adjunct to their New Roads chiropractic care.


The benefit of New Roads chiropractic nutrition is additionally shown when coupled with New Roads chiropractic spinal manipulation. The physiological effects of spinal manipulation showed 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) New Roads Chiropractic Center understands the joint importance of supplying the nutrients of a good disc supplement and daily multivitamin with New Roads spinal manipulation to affect diffusion of water and molecular chemicals into the disc. New Roads Chiropractic Center is well skilled with spinal manipulation to do this!

This study highlights the role of Cox Technic protocols in the treatment and prevention of New Roads disc degeneration and its resultant disc herniation in good perspective. The effects of New Roads chiropractic on intervertebral disk matrix and metabolic enzymes in rats with cervical disc degeneration and arthritis showed that chiropractic may enhance the degeneration in rats with cervical disc degeneration and arthritis by regulating the intervertebral disc matrix system and relevant metabolic enzymes.
