Manahawkin Chiropractic Center Cares for Spinal Discs with Nutrition and Knowledge

What do you know about the nutrition of the discs in your spine? Your Manahawkin chiropractor knows a lot about them! Not a day goes by that your Manahawkin chiropractor is not treating spinal discs. The discs in the spine have a high metabolism that demands oxygen, glucose, chondroitin sulfate and minerals in order for it to escape degenerative change. Let us look at how Manahawkin chiropractic guided nutrition can alleviate and improve the health of the human disc. Its nutritional balance is delicate and quite responsive to nutrition and Manahawkin chiropractic treatment.

HOW DISC DEGENERATION PLAYS A ROLE

The depletion of chondroitin sulfate  within the intervertebral disc during Manahawkin 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 (called glycosaminoglycan) in the disc structure. This degeneration takes place throughout the whole disc. These changes give an appreciation of the potential influence of chondroitin sulfate on the disc biology and the development of therapeutic methods for disc regeneration and repair. (1) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center takes note of this to help Manahawkin chiropractic disc degeneration patients.

ANTI-INFLAMMATORY

Not only is chondroitin sulfate important for the health of your Manahawkin disc and its capability to fight degeneration, but chondroitin sulfate is a slow-acting anti-inflammatory drug for doctoring osteoarthritis and low back pain. Manahawkin inflammation influences disc health status. Chondroitin sulfate doesn’t 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 shown to reestablish the degenerative disc cells when disc cells are put in this umbilical fluid called Wharton’s Jelly. Captivatingly this disc cell restorative fluid comprises chondroitin sulfate which is the chemical forming 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) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center makes available 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. Manahawkin chiropractic patients find this an advantageous adjunct to their Manahawkin chiropractic care.

SPINAL MANIPULATION PLUS NUTRITION

The value of Manahawkin chiropractic nutrition is further shown when joined with Manahawkin chiropractic spinal manipulation. The physiological effects of spinal manipulation displayed 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) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center comprehends the joint importance of providing the nutrients of a good disc supplement and daily multivitamin with Manahawkin spinal manipulation to influence dispersement of water and molecular chemicals into the disc. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center is well experienced with spinal manipulation to do this!

This study highlights the role of Cox Technic procedures in the treatment and prevention of Manahawkin disc degeneration and its subsequent disc herniation in good perspective. The effects of Manahawkin chiropractic on intervertebral disk matrix and metabolic enzymes in rats with cervical disc degeneration and arthritis showed that chiropractic may improve the degeneration in rats with cervical disc degeneration and arthritis by adjusting the intervertebral disc matrix system and relevant metabolic enzymes.
