Tonawanda Osteoarthritis Benefits from Chiropractic Care

Chondroprotective…a beautiful word to your Tonawanda chiropractor who is all about protecting the cartilage of Tonawanda back pain and spine-related pain sufferers in addition to Tonawanda knee pain sufferers with osteoarthritis. When such pain rises, a decrease in beneficial nutrients often accompanies it. Luckily, chiropractic care options at Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation like spinal manipulation, exercise, and nutrition are protective and relieving.


Chondro refers to cartilage while protective means, well, protective. When caring for musculoskeletal pain like Tonawandaback pain or knee pain, chondroprotective agents are beneficial. In newer studies, the term “chondroprotectors” has been mentioned. More specifically in one study, glucosamine exhibited a chondroprotective action on osteoarthritis by blocking type II collagen degradation. In athletes, such collagen degradation associated with cartilage metabolism increased. (1) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation suggests exercise whether it’s athletic-level or everyday walking to enhance body health and cartilage metabolism like this article describes.


Nutrition may improve osteoarthritis indications, as well. Nutrients like glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate have been researched and documented to slow the progression 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 take part in articular cartilage metabolism – work when there is a reduction in chondroitin sulfate and ongoing loss of hyaline cartilage as observed in osteoarthritis and low back pain. The aim of osteoarthritis treatment is to reduce its progression, relieve its pain, and enhance any reduced function. (3) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation knows well the chondroprotective nature of proper nutrition!


At Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation, chiropractic care incorporates a variety of methods to reduce pain and protect the body’s joints and cartilage. Spinal manipulation is the expected chiropractic treatment approach while a reworking of its distractive principles has been applied to the knee for osteoarthritic knee pain relief. Research support for distraction of the knee grows as to its effectiveness in alleviating pain and improving joint space width. A paper reported that it continued for up to 9 years. (4) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation is all for these chondroprotective approaches to knee as well as Tonawanda back pain!
