Chondroprotective…a beautiful word to your
Pflugerville chiropractor who is all about protecting the cartilage of
Pflugerville back pain and spine-related pain sufferers along with Pflugerville knee pain sufferers with
osteoarthritis. When such pain rises, a decrease
in beneficial nutrients often accompanies it. Luckily,
chiropractic care options at Pflugerville Wellness Center like spinal manipulation, exercise, and nutrition are
protective and relieving.
Chondro describes cartilage while protective
means, well, protective. When it comes to musculoskeletal pain
like Pflugervilleback pain or knee pain, chondroprotective agents are essential.
In newer studies, the term “chondroprotectors” has been mentioned.
More specifically in a study, glucosamine demonstrated
a chondroprotective action on osteoarthritis by blocking type
II collagen degradation. In athletes, such collagen degradation associated
with cartilage metabolism rose. (1) Pflugerville Wellness Center
suggests 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 development
of osteoarthritis of the knee in many well-done research projects.
(2) Chondroprotectors - biological agents that add to the
regeneration of the cartilage surface and joint capsule and participate
in articular cartilage metabolism – work when there is a decrease
in chondroitin sulfate and progressive loss of hyaline
cartilage as seen in osteoarthritis and low
back pain. The aim of osteoarthritis treatment is to reduce its progression, ease
its pain, and improve any reduced function. (3) Pflugerville Wellness Center knows
well the chondroprotective nature of proper nutrition!
