Chondroprotective…a beautiful word to your
Baton Rouge chiropractor who is all about protecting the cartilage of
Baton Rouge back pain and spine-related pain sufferers as
well as Baton Rouge knee pain sufferers with
osteoarthritis. When such pain happens, a decrease
in beneficial nutrients often follows. Fortunately,
chiropractic care options at Spine & Sports Rehab Center like spinal manipulation, exercise, and nutrition are
protective as well as alleviating.
Chondro describes cartilage while protective
means, well, protective. When it comes to musculoskeletal pain
like Baton Rouge back pain or knee pain, chondroprotective agents are valuable.
In recent studies, the term “chondroprotectors” has been mentioned.
More specifically in a study, glucosamine demonstrated
a chondroprotective action on osteoarthritis by preventing type
II collagen degradation. In athletes, such collagen degradation associated
with cartilage metabolism increased. (1) Spine & Sports Rehab Center
suggests exercise whether it’s athletic-level or everyday
walking to enhance body health and cartilage metabolism like 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 research projects.
(2) Chondroprotectors - biological agents that enhance the
regeneration of the cartilage surface and joint capsule and take part
in articular cartilage metabolism – come into play when there is a reduction
in chondroitin sulfate and ongoing loss of hyaline
cartilage as observed in osteoarthritis and low
back pain. The goal of osteoarthritis treatment is to reduce its progression, ease
its pain, and improve any reduced function. (3) Spine & Sports Rehab Center understands
well the chondroprotective nature of proper nutrition!
