Apple Country Chiropractic Cares for Spinal Discs with Nutrition and Knowledge

What do you know about the nutrition of the discs in your spine? Your Williamson chiropractor is well acquainted with them! Not less than daily is it that your Williamson chiropractor isn’t working with spinal discs. The discs in the spine have a high metabolism that requires oxygen, glucose, chondroitin sulfate and minerals for its ability to evade degenerative change. Let’s study how Williamson chiropractic guided nutrition can stabilize and develop the health of the human disc. Its nutritional balance is sensitive and quite receptive to nutrition and Williamson chiropractic treatment.


The reduction of chondroitin sulfate  within the intervertebral disc during Williamson degenerative disc disease creates a reduction in tissue hydration, a loss of fluid movement, cell death (also called apoptosis), a loss of nerve growth inhibition and ultimately, the loss of disc function. Aging sees a significant decrease in chondroitin sulfate (called glycosaminoglycan) in the disc structure. This degeneration happens throughout the whole disc. These changes give an appreciation of the possible influence of chondroitin sulfate on the disc biology and the growth of therapeutic approaches for disc regeneration and repair. (1) Apple Country Chiropractic takes note of this to help Williamson chiropractic disc degeneration patients.


Not only is chondroitin sulfate vital for the health of your Williamson disc and its capability to resist degeneration, but chondroitin sulfate is a slow-acting anti-inflammatory drug for doctoring osteoarthritis and low back pain. Williamson inflammation plays a role in disc health status. Chondroitin sulfate does not have the unfavorable side effects of non–steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs that can harm organs such as the liver, heart and kidneys. (2) A source of chondroitin sulfate is from human umbilical cord which is revealed to restore the degenerative disc cells when disc cells are placed in this umbilical fluid called Wharton’s Jelly. Interestingly this disc cell restorative fluid has chondroitin sulfate which is the chemical making up the intervertebral disc. (3) Also of curiosity is a study showing positive outcomes using vitamins B12, 1, and 6 in treating arm and leg pain due to intervertebral disc degeneration and herniation. (4) Apple Country Chiropractic makes available a high-quality disc nutritional supplement that explicitly contains chondroitin sulfate and a daily multivitamin, amino acid, enzyme, and herb formula containing the B vitamins to reduce inflammation. Williamson chiropractic patients find this an advantageous addition to their Williamson chiropractic care.


The benefit of Williamson chiropractic nutrition is additionally revealed when combined with Williamson chiropractic spinal manipulation. The physiological effects of spinal manipulation showed that it affected disc physiology mostly through water flow via water diffusion and molecular transport into the disc, which are important for the health of the disc. (5) Apple Country Chiropractic understands the combined importance of providing the nutrients of a good disc supplement and daily multivitamin with Williamson spinal manipulation to influence diffusion of water and molecular chemicals into the disc. Apple Country Chiropractic is well experienced with spinal manipulation to do this!

This study highlights the role of Cox Technic protocols in the treatment and prevention of Williamson disc degeneration and its ensuing disc herniation in good perspective. The effects of Williamson chiropractic on intervertebral disk matrix and metabolic enzymes in rats with cervical disc degeneration and arthritis showed that chiropractic may enhance the degeneration in rats with cervical disc degeneration and arthritis by controlling the intervertebral disc matrix system and related metabolic enzymes.
