Chondroprotective…a beautiful word to your
Sitka chiropractor who is all about protecting the cartilage of
Sitka back pain and spine-related pain sufferers in addition to Sitka knee pain sufferers with
osteoarthritis. When such pain arises, a decrease
in beneficial nutrients often follows. Luckily,
chiropractic care options at Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka like spinal manipulation, exercise, and nutrition are
protective as well as relieving.
Chondro describes cartilage while protective
means, well, protective. When it comes to musculoskeletal pain
like Sitkaback pain or knee pain, chondroprotective agents are essential.
In recent studies, the term “chondroprotectors” has been mentioned.
More specifically in a study, glucosamine exhibited
a chondroprotective action on osteoarthritis by preventing type
II collagen degradation. In athletes, such collagen degradation related to cartilage metabolism rose. (1) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka
encourages exercise whether it’s athletic-level or everyday
walking to enhance body health and cartilage metabolism as this
Nutrition may improve osteoarthritis symptoms,
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 take part
in articular cartilage metabolism – come into play when there is a decrease
in chondroitin sulfate and progressive loss of hyaline
cartilage as observed in osteoarthritis in addition to low
back pain. The goal of treatment of
osteoarthritis is to reduce its progression, ease
its pain, and enhance any diminished function. (3) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka knows
well the chondroprotective nature of proper nutrition!
