Chondroprotective…a beautiful word to your
Williamson chiropractor who is all about protecting the cartilage of
Williamson back pain and spine-related pain sufferers in addition to Williamson knee pain sufferers with
osteoarthritis. When such pain arises, a decrease
in beneficial nutrients often follows. Fortunately,
chiropractic care options at Apple Country Chiropractic like spinal manipulation, exercise, and nutrition are
protective and alleviating.
Chondro describes cartilage while protective
means, well, protective. When caring for musculoskeletal pain
like Williamsonback pain or knee pain, chondroprotective agents are beneficial.
In recent studies, the term “chondroprotectors” has been cited.
More specifically in a study, glucosamine demonstrated
a chondroprotective action on osteoarthritis by preventing type
II collagen degradation. In athletes, such collagen degradation related to cartilage metabolism rose. (1) Apple Country Chiropractic
encourages exercise whether it’s athletic-level or everyday
walking to enhance body health and cartilage metabolism like this
Nutrition may improve osteoarthritis symptoms,
too. Nutrients like glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate have been
researched and documented to slow the progression
of osteoarthritis of the knee in many well-done studies.
(2) Chondroprotectors - biological agents that enhance the
regeneration of the cartilage surface and joint capsule and take part
in articular cartilage metabolism – come into play when there is a reduction
in chondroitin sulfate and increasing loss of hyaline
cartilage as seen in osteoarthritis and low
back pain. The goal of osteoarthritis treatment is to reduce its progression, relieve
its pain, and enhance any reduced function. (3) Apple Country Chiropractic understands
well the chondroprotective nature of proper nutrition!
