Chondroprotective…a beautiful word to your
Lynchburg chiropractor who is all about protecting the cartilage of
Lynchburg back pain and spine-related pain sufferers along with Lynchburg knee pain sufferers with
osteoarthritis. When such pain happens, a reduction of beneficial nutrients often follows. Luckily,
chiropractic care options at Palmer Chiropractic Center like spinal manipulation, exercise, and nutrition are
protective as well as relieving.
Chondro refers to cartilage while protective
means, well, protective. When caring for musculoskeletal pain
like Lynchburgback pain or knee pain, chondroprotective agents are helpful.
In recent studies, the term “chondroprotectors” has been cited.
More specifically in one study, glucosamine showed
a chondroprotective action on osteoarthritis by preventing type
II collagen degradation. In athletes, such collagen degradation associated
with cartilage metabolism rose. (1) Palmer Chiropractic Center
suggests exercise whether it’s athletic-level or everyday
walking to enhance body health and cartilage metabolism like this
Nutrition may improve osteoarthritis indications,
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-done studies.
(2) Chondroprotectors - biological agents that enhance the
regeneration of the cartilage surface and joint capsule and participate
in articular cartilage metabolism – work 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, relieve
its pain, and improve any reduced function. (3) Palmer Chiropractic Center understands
well the chondroprotective nature of proper nutrition!
