Chondroprotective…a beautiful word to your
Baton Rouge chiropractor who is all about protecting the cartilage of
Baton Rouge back pain and spine-related pain sufferers in addition to Baton Rouge knee pain sufferers with
osteoarthritis. When such pain happens, a reduction of beneficial nutrients often accompanies it. Luckily,
chiropractic care options at Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation like spinal manipulation, exercise, and nutrition are
protective and relieving.
Chondro describes cartilage while protective
means, well, protective. When caring for musculoskeletal pain
like Baton Rougeback pain or knee pain, chondroprotective agents are essential.
In newer studies, the term “chondroprotectors” has been mentioned.
More specifically in one study, glucosamine demonstrated
a chondroprotective action on osteoarthritis by blocking type
II collagen degradation. In athletes, such collagen degradation related to cartilage metabolism increased. (1) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation
suggests exercise whether it’s athletic-level or everyday
walking to enhance body health and cartilage metabolism as this
Nutrition may improve osteoarthritis symptoms,
as well. Nutrients like glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate have been
researched and recorded to slow the development
of osteoarthritis of the knee in many well-designed research projects.
(2) Chondroprotectors - biological agents that enhance the
regeneration of the cartilage surface and joint capsule and participate
in articular cartilage metabolism – come into play when there is a reduction
in chondroitin sulfate and ongoing loss of hyaline
cartilage as observed in osteoarthritis in addition to low
back pain. The aim of osteoarthritis treatment is to reduce its progression, relieve
its pain, and improve any reduced function. (3) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation knows
well the chondroprotective nature of proper nutrition!
