Chondroprotective…a beautiful word to your
Burlington and Hamilton chiropractor who is all about protecting the cartilage of
Burlington and Hamilton back pain and spine-related pain sufferers along with Burlington and Hamilton knee pain sufferers with
osteoarthritis. When such pain arises, a reduction of beneficial nutrients often accompanies it. Luckily,
chiropractic care options at Spinal Care Clinic like spinal manipulation, exercise, and nutrition are
protective as well as alleviating.
Chondro describes cartilage while protective
means, well, protective. When caring for musculoskeletal pain
like Burlington and Hamiltonback pain or knee pain, chondroprotective agents are helpful.
In recent studies, the term “chondroprotectors” has been mentioned.
More specifically in a study, glucosamine exhibited
a chondroprotective action on osteoarthritis by blocking type
II collagen degradation. In athletes, such collagen degradation associated
with cartilage metabolism increased. (1) Spinal Care 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
studied and documented to slow the development
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 decrease
in chondroitin sulfate and increasing loss of hyaline
cartilage as seen in osteoarthritis in addition to low
back pain. The aim of osteoarthritis treatment is to reduce its progression, relieve
its pain, and enhance any diminished function. (3) Spinal Care Clinic understands
well the chondroprotective nature of proper nutrition!
