Chiropractic Cares for Spine Pain

What makes you come to the chiropractic office? The spine, spine pain or spine related pain. Chiropractors play a well-recognized role as spine care providers in the greater health care system. Insurance, regulatory, and educational bodies reimburse, regulate, and produce graduates focused on spine care from examination and diagnosis to treatment. (1) Society sees chiropractic as spine care professionals often more clearly than does chiropractic itself (2) though your Baton Rouge chiropractor knows spine care is the forte of clinical practice at Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation! Once the spine pain issue is calmed, we work with you on issues of health and well-being.

 

Chondroitin and Glucosamine Sulfate

Benefits for Cartilage and Cancer Risk Reduction

Glucosamine (GS) and chondroitin sulfate (CS) are common supplement recommendations and for good reason. CS is a natural glycosaminoglycan found in the cartilage and extracellular matrix. It shows clinical benefits in symptomatic osteoarthritis of the finger, knee, hip joints, low back, facial joints and other diseases due to its anti-inflammatory activity. (3) Recent studies suggest that use of GS and CS may reduce the risk of colorectal cancer by 45% in users who take them 4 or more days a week for three years or more. (4,5) A high 10-years use of glucosamine reportedly reduces lung cancer risk. (6) Amazing information for these common supplements that initially came out just to help cartilage and disc! Let’s talk about glucosamine and chondroitin and the supplements available at your next Baton Rouge chiropractic appointment! Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation is up on the highest quality nutritional supplements available.

 

Oh, Those High Heels Look So Fine!

They are a fashion statement, yes, especially this time of year! Wearing them changes the body’s center of gravity and thereby changes the flexion of the knees and ankles. (7) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation appreciates the loveliness of these shoes but also wants to forewarn our Baton Rouge females of their difficulties…and invite you to see Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation when they bother your spine! Our Cox Technic spinal manipulation is gentle and relieving!

 
 
Vitamins B and D Are Important as We Age

Vitamins B and D influence diseases that often come with aging. Low levels of Vitamin D may be a risk factor for Alzheimer’s Disease. (8) Taking NSAIDS for low back pain often cause adverse effects which can be counteracted by adding B-group vitamins - artrozan (meloxicam) and cyanocobalamine (B-group vitamin complex - to the treatment plan. (9) B-vitamins are garnering much interest from researchers. Low levels of folate and related B-vitamins (and/or high levels of homocysteine) point to higher levels of degenerative diseases like cardiovascular disease, cognitive dysfunction, and osteoporosis. The good news is if B vitamins are supplemented, they seem to have a preventative effect. (10) That’s what Baton Rouge chiropractic care is all about at Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation – prevention whenever possible! We can help set up a nutrition plan just for you.
