Palmer Chiropractic Center Cares for Spinal Discs with Nutrition and Knowledge

What do you know about the nutrition of the discs in your spine? Your Lynchburg chiropractor knows a lot about them! Not less than daily is it that your Lynchburg 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 us consider how Lynchburg chiropractic guided nutrition can ease and develop the health of the human disc. Its nutritional balance is delicate and quite responsive to nutrition and Lynchburg chiropractic treatment.

HOW DISC DEGENERATION PLAYS A ROLE

The depletion of chondroitin sulfate  within the intervertebral disc during Lynchburg 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 offer an appreciation of the possible influence of chondroitin sulfate on the disc biology and the growth of therapeutic methods for disc regeneration and repair.

ANTI-INFLAMMATORY

Not only is chondroitin sulfate vital for the health of your Lynchburg disc and its capability to fight degeneration, but chondroitin sulfate is a slow-acting anti-inflammatory drug for taking care of osteoarthritis and low back pain. Lynchburg inflammation plays a role in disc health status. Chondroitin sulfate does not have the adverse side effects of non–steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs that can harm 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 known as Wharton’s Jelly. Captivatingly this disc cell restorative fluid comprises chondroitin sulfate which is the chemical making up the intervertebral disc. (3) Also of curiosity 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) Palmer Chiropractic Center offers a high-quality disc nutritional supplement that explicitly has chondroitin sulfate and a daily multivitamin, amino acid, enzyme, and herb formula containing the B vitamins to lower inflammation. Lynchburg chiropractic patients find this a beneficial adjunct to their Lynchburg chiropractic care.

SPINAL MANIPULATION PLUS NUTRITION

The benefit of Lynchburg chiropractic nutrition is additionally revealed when combined with Lynchburg chiropractic spinal manipulation. The physiological effects of spinal manipulation showed that it influenced disc physiology mainly through water flow via water diffusion and molecular transport into the disc, which are important for the health of the disc. (5) Palmer Chiropractic Center comprehends the combined importance of providing the nutrients of a good disc supplement and daily multivitamin with Lynchburg spinal manipulation to affect diffusion of water and molecular chemicals into the disc. Palmer Chiropractic Center 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 Lynchburg disc degeneration and its resultant disc herniation. The effects of Lynchburg chiropractic on intervertebral disk matrix and metabolic enzymes in rats with cervical disc degeneration and arthritis revealed that chiropractic may improve the degeneration in rats with cervical disc degeneration and arthritis by regulating the intervertebral disc matrix system and related metabolic enzymes.
