Chiropractic Care Cares for Spinal Discs with Nutrition and Knowledge

What do you know about the nutrition of the discs in your spine? Your Chicago chiropractor knows a lot about them! Not a day goes by that your Chicago chiropractor is not treating spinal discs. The discs in the spine have a high metabolism that demands oxygen, glucose, chondroitin sulfate and minerals in order for it to escape degenerative change. Let us study how Chicago chiropractic guided nutrition can alleviate and develop the health of the human disc. Its nutritional balance is delicate and quite receptive to nutrition and Chicago chiropractic treatment.

HOW DISC DEGENERATION PLAYS A ROLE

The reduction of chondroitin sulfate  within the intervertebral disc during Chicago 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 experiences a significant drop in chondroitin sulfate (called glycosaminoglycan) in the disc structure. This degeneration happens throughout the entire disc. These changes contribute to an appreciation of the possible impact of chondroitin sulfate on the disc biology and the expansion of therapeutic methods for disc regeneration and repair.

ANTI-INFLAMMATORY

Not only is chondroitin sulfate vital for the health of your Chicago disc and its ability to fight degeneration, but chondroitin sulfate is a slow-acting anti-inflammatory drug for doctoring osteoarthritis and low back pain. Chicago inflammation plays a role in disc health status. Chondroitin sulfate doesn’t have the adverse side effects of non–steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs that can damage 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 called Wharton’s Jelly. Interestingly this disc cell restorative fluid comprises chondroitin sulfate which is the chemical forming the intervertebral disc. (3) Also of interest 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) Chiropractic Care makes available a high-quality disc nutritional supplement that specifically has chondroitin sulfate and a daily multivitamin, amino acid, enzyme, and herb formula containing the B vitamins to lower inflammation. Chicago chiropractic patients describe this as an advantageous adjunct to their Chicago chiropractic care.

SPINAL MANIPULATION PLUS NUTRITION

The value of Chicago chiropractic nutrition is additionally revealed when combined with Chicago 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) Chiropractic Care comprehends the combined importance of supplying the nutrients of a good disc supplement and daily multivitamin with Chicago spinal manipulation to affect dispersement of water and molecular chemicals into the disc. Chiropractic Care is well experienced with spinal manipulation to do this!

This study puts in perspective the role of Cox Technic protocols in the treatment and prevention of Chicago disc degeneration and its subsequent disc herniation. The effects of Chicago chiropractic on intervertebral disk matrix and metabolic enzymes in rats with cervical disc degeneration and arthritis revealed that chiropractic may better the degeneration in rats with cervical disc degeneration and arthritis by controlling the intervertebral disc matrix system and related metabolic enzymes.
