Spinal Care Clinic Cares for Spinal Discs with Nutrition and Knowledge

What do you know about the nutrition of the discs in your spine? Your Burlington and Hamilton chiropractor knows a lot about them! Not a day goes by that your Burlington and Hamilton chiropractor is not 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 escape degenerative change. Let’s consider how Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic guided nutrition can stabilize and improve the health of the human disc. Its nutritional balance is sensitive and quite receptive to nutrition and Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic treatment.

HOW DISC DEGENERATION PLAYS A ROLE

The depletion of chondroitin sulfate  inside the intervertebral disc during Burlington and Hamilton degenerative disc disease results in 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 takes place throughout the whole disc. These changes offer an appreciation of the possible influence of chondroitin sulfate on the disc biology and the development of therapeutic approaches for disc regeneration and repair. (1) Spinal Care Clinic takes note of this to help Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic disc degeneration patients.

ANTI-INFLAMMATORY

Not only is chondroitin sulfate vital for the health of your Burlington and Hamilton 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. Burlington and Hamilton 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 harm organs such as the liver, heart and kidneys. (2) A source of chondroitin sulfate is from human umbilical cord which is revealed to reestablish the degenerative disc cells when disc cells are placed in this umbilical fluid known as Wharton’s Jelly. Interestingly this disc cell restorative fluid comprises chondroitin sulfate which is the chemical making up 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) Spinal Care 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 lower inflammation. Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic patients describe this as a beneficial addition to their Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic care.

SPINAL MANIPULATION PLUS NUTRITION

The benefit of Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic nutrition is further shown when coupled with Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic spinal manipulation. The physiological effects of spinal manipulation displayed 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) Spinal Care Clinic understands the joint importance of supplying the nutrients of a good disc supplement and daily multivitamin with Burlington and Hamilton spinal manipulation to influence diffusion of water and molecular chemicals into the disc. Spinal Care Clinic is well experienced with spinal manipulation to do this!

This study puts in perspective the role of Cox Technic procedures in the treatment and prevention of Burlington and Hamilton disc degeneration and its subsequent disc herniation. The effects of Burlington and Hamilton 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 controlling the intervertebral disc matrix system and relevant metabolic enzymes.
