West Palm Beach Osteoarthritis Benefits from Chiropractic Care

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 as this article describes.


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.
