Chondroprotective…a beautiful word to your
Manahawkin chiropractor who is all about protecting the cartilage of
Manahawkin back pain and spine-related pain sufferers in addition to Manahawkin knee pain sufferers with
osteoarthritis. When such pain rises, a reduction of beneficial nutrients often accompanies it. Fortunately,
chiropractic care options at Manahawkin Chiropractic Center like spinal manipulation, exercise, and nutrition are
protective as well as alleviating.
Chondro refers to cartilage while protective
means, well, protective. When caring for musculoskeletal pain
like Manahawkinback pain or knee pain, chondroprotective agents are valuable.
In newer studies, the term “chondroprotectors” has been mentioned.
More specifically in one study, glucosamine showed
a chondroprotective action on osteoarthritis by blocking type
II collagen degradation. In athletes, such collagen degradation associated
with cartilage metabolism rose. (1) Manahawkin 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 symptoms,
as well. Nutrients like glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate have been
studied and documented to slow the progression
of osteoarthritis of the knee in many well-designed studies.
(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 decrease
in chondroitin sulfate and increasing loss of hyaline
cartilage as observed in osteoarthritis in addition to low
back pain. The aim of osteoarthritis treatment is to slow its progression, ease
its pain, and enhance any reduced function. (3) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center knows
well the chondroprotective nature of proper nutrition!
