Chiropractic Associates Cares for Spinal Discs with Nutrition and Knowledge

What do you know about the nutrition of the discs in your spine? Your Preston chiropractor knows a lot about them! Not less than daily is it that your Preston 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 avoid degenerative change. Let’s look at how Preston chiropractic guided nutrition can alleviate and improve the health of the human disc. Its nutritional balance is sensitive and quite receptive to nutrition and Preston chiropractic treatment.

HOW DISC DEGENERATION PLAYS A ROLE

The reduction of chondroitin sulfate  inside the intervertebral disc during Preston degenerative disc disease creates 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 experiences a significant decrease in chondroitin sulfate (called glycosaminoglycan) in the disc structure. This degeneration happens throughout the whole disc. These changes offer an appreciation of the potential impact of chondroitin sulfate on the disc biology and the expansion of therapeutic methods for disc regeneration and repair.

ANTI-INFLAMMATORY

Not only is chondroitin sulfate important for the health of your Preston disc and its capability to resist degeneration, but chondroitin sulfate is a slow-acting anti-inflammatory drug for treating osteoarthritis and low back pain. Preston inflammation plays a role in disc health status. Chondroitin sulfate doesn’t have the unfavorable side effects of non–steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs that can damage organs such as the liver, heart and kidneys. (2) A source of chondroitin sulfate is from human umbilical cord which is revealed to restore the degenerative disc cells when disc cells are placed in this umbilical fluid known as Wharton’s Jelly. Interestingly 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) Chiropractic Associates offers a high-quality disc nutritional supplement that specifically contains chondroitin sulfate and a daily multivitamin, amino acid, enzyme, and herb formula incorporating the B vitamins to lower inflammation. Preston chiropractic patients find this an advantageous adjunct to their Preston chiropractic care.

SPINAL MANIPULATION PLUS NUTRITION

The value of Preston chiropractic nutrition is further shown when coupled with Preston chiropractic spinal manipulation. The physiological effects of spinal manipulation showed that it guided disc physiology primarily via water flow via water diffusion and molecular transport into the disc, which are important for the health of the disc. (5) Chiropractic Associates understands the combined importance of supplying the nutrients of a good disc supplement and daily multivitamin with Preston spinal manipulation to affect diffusion of water and molecular chemicals into the disc. Chiropractic Associates is well experienced with spinal manipulation to do this!

This study highlights the role of Cox Technic protocols in the treatment and prevention of Preston disc degeneration and its ensuing disc herniation in good perspective. The effects of Preston chiropractic on intervertebral disk matrix and metabolic enzymes in rats with cervical disc degeneration and arthritis showed that chiropractic may enhance the degeneration in rats with cervical disc degeneration and arthritis by controlling the intervertebral disc matrix system and relevant metabolic enzymes.
