Pflugerville Wellness Center Cares for Spinal Discs with Nutrition and Knowledge

What do you know about the nutrition of the discs in your spine? Your Pflugerville chiropractor is well acquainted with them! Not a day goes by that your Pflugerville chiropractor is not caring for spinal discs. The discs in the spine have a high metabolism that needs oxygen, glucose, chondroitin sulfate and minerals for its ability to evade degenerative change. Let’s study how Pflugerville chiropractic guided nutrition can stabilize and improve the health of the human disc. Its nutritional balance is sensitive and quite responsive to nutrition and Pflugerville chiropractic treatment.


The depletion of chondroitin sulfate  within the intervertebral disc during Pflugerville degenerative disc disease results in a decrease in tissue hydration, a loss of fluid movement, cell death (also called apoptosis), a loss of nerve growth inhibition and finally, 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 contribute to an appreciation of the possible impact of chondroitin sulfate on the disc biology and the growth of therapeutic approaches for disc regeneration and repair. (1) Pflugerville Wellness Center notes this to help Pflugerville chiropractic disc degeneration patients.


Not only is chondroitin sulfate vital for the health of your Pflugerville disc and its capability to fight degeneration, but chondroitin sulfate is a slow-acting anti-inflammatory drug for treating osteoarthritis and low back pain. Pflugerville 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 damage organs such as the liver, heart and kidneys. (2) A source of chondroitin sulfate is from human umbilical cord which is revealed to reestablish the degenerative disc cells when disc cells are put in this umbilical fluid known as Wharton’s Jelly. Interestingly this disc cell restorative fluid has chondroitin sulfate which is the chemical forming the intervertebral disc. (3) Also of interest 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) Pflugerville Wellness Center makes available a high-quality disc nutritional supplement that explicitly has chondroitin sulfate and a daily multivitamin, amino acid, enzyme, and herb formula containing the B vitamins to lower inflammation. Pflugerville chiropractic patients find this an advantageous addition to their Pflugerville chiropractic care.


The value of Pflugerville chiropractic nutrition is further revealed when joined with Pflugerville 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) Pflugerville Wellness Center comprehends the combined importance of supplying the nutrients of a good disc supplement and daily multivitamin with Pflugerville spinal manipulation to affect dispersement of water and molecular chemicals into the disc. Pflugerville Wellness Center is well skilled with spinal manipulation to do this!

This study puts in perspective the role of Cox Technic protocols in the treatment and prevention of Pflugerville disc degeneration and its resultant disc herniation. The effects of Pflugerville chiropractic on intervertebral disk matrix and metabolic enzymes in rats with cervical disc degeneration and arthritis revealed that chiropractic may better the degeneration in rats with cervical disc degeneration and arthritis by adjusting the intervertebral disc matrix system and relevant metabolic enzymes.
