Chondroprotective…a beautiful word to your
West Palm Beach chiropractor who is all about protecting the cartilage of
West Palm Beach back pain and spine-related pain sufferers in addition to West Palm Beach knee pain sufferers with
osteoarthritis. When such pain arises, a reduction of beneficial nutrients often follows. Luckily,
chiropractic care options at Moses Chiropractic like spinal manipulation, exercise, and nutrition are
protective and relieving.
Chondro describes cartilage while protective
means, well, protective. When caring for musculoskeletal pain
like West Palm Beachback pain or knee pain, chondroprotective agents are valuable.
In newer studies, the term “chondroprotectors” has been mentioned.
More specifically in one study, glucosamine exhibited
a chondroprotective action on osteoarthritis by preventing type
II collagen degradation. In athletes, such collagen degradation related to cartilage metabolism increased. (1) Moses Chiropractic
encourages exercise whether it’s athletic-level or everyday
walking to enhance body health and cartilage metabolism like this
Nutrition may improve osteoarthritis indications,
as well. Nutrients like glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate have been
studied and documented to slow the progress
of osteoarthritis of the knee in many well-designed research projects.
(2) Chondroprotectors - biological agents that add to 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 seen in osteoarthritis and low
back pain. The goal of treatment of
osteoarthritis is to slow its progression, relieve
its pain, and enhance any reduced function. (3) Moses Chiropractic knows
well the chondroprotective nature of proper nutrition!
