Spine & Sports Rehab Center Cares for Spinal Discs with Nutrition and Knowledge

What do you know about the nutrition of the discs in your spine? Your Baton Rouge chiropractor is well acquainted with them! Not less than daily is it that your Baton Rouge chiropractor isn’t caring for spinal discs. The discs in the spine have a high metabolism that needs oxygen, glucose, chondroitin sulfate and minerals in order for it to escape degenerative change. Let’s consider how Baton Rouge chiropractic guided nutrition can alleviate and improve the health of the human disc. Its nutritional balance is sensitive and quite receptive to nutrition and Baton Rouge chiropractic treatment.


The reduction of chondroitin sulfate  inside the intervertebral disc during Baton Rouge degenerative disc disease results in a decrease in tissue hydration, a loss of fluid movement, cell death (also called apoptosis), a loss of nerve growth inhibition and ultimately, the loss of disc function. Aging sees a significant drop in chondroitin sulfate (known as glycosaminoglycan) in the disc structure. This degeneration takes place throughout the whole disc. These changes give an appreciation of the possible impact of chondroitin sulfate on the disc biology and the growth of therapeutic approaches for disc regeneration and repair.

Not only is chondroitin sulfate vital for the health of your Baton Rouge disc and its capability to fight degeneration, but chondroitin sulfate is a slow-acting anti-inflammatory drug for doctoring osteoarthritis and low back pain. Baton Rouge inflammation influences 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 bring back the degenerative disc cells when disc cells are placed in this umbilical fluid called Wharton’s Jelly. Interestingly this disc cell restorative fluid has chondroitin sulfate which is the chemical creating 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) Spine & Sports Rehab Center makes available 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. Baton Rouge chiropractic patients find this valuable addition to their Baton Rouge chiropractic care.


The value of Baton Rouge chiropractic nutrition is further revealed when joined with Baton Rouge chiropractic spinal manipulation. The physiological effects of spinal manipulation showed that it guided disc physiology primarily via water flow via water diffusion and molecular transport into the disc, which are important for the health of the disc. (5) Spine & Sports Rehab Center understands the joint importance of providing the nutrients of a good disc supplement and daily multivitamin with Baton Rouge spinal manipulation to influence diffusion of water and molecular chemicals into the disc. Spine & Sports Rehab Center is well skilled with spinal manipulation to do this!

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