Chondroprotective…a beautiful word to your
Ashburn chiropractor who is all about protecting the cartilage of
Ashburn back pain and spine-related pain sufferers in addition to Ashburn knee pain sufferers with
osteoarthritis. When such pain rises, a decrease
in beneficial nutrients often follows. Luckily,
chiropractic care options at Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn like spinal manipulation, exercise, and nutrition are
protective as well as alleviating.
Chondro describes cartilage while protective
means, well, protective. When it comes to musculoskeletal pain
like Ashburnback pain or knee pain, chondroprotective agents are valuable.
In recent 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) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn
suggests exercise whether it’s athletic-level or everyday
walking to enhance body health and cartilage metabolism like this
Nutrition may improve osteoarthritis symptoms,
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 participate
in articular cartilage metabolism – work when there is a reduction
in chondroitin sulfate and ongoing loss of hyaline
cartilage as seen in osteoarthritis and low
back pain. The goal of treatment of
osteoarthritis is to slow its progression, relieve
its pain, and improve any diminished function. (3) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn knows
well the chondroprotective nature of proper nutrition!
