Chondroprotective…a beautiful word to your
Groton chiropractor who is all about protecting the cartilage of
Groton back pain and spine-related pain sufferers as
well as Groton knee pain sufferers with
osteoarthritis. When such pain rises, a decrease
in beneficial nutrients often accompanies it. Fortunately,
chiropractic care options at Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office like spinal manipulation, exercise, and nutrition are
protective and relieving.
Chondro refers to cartilage while protective
means, well, protective. When caring for musculoskeletal pain
like Grotonback pain or knee pain, chondroprotective agents are essential.
In recent studies, the term “chondroprotectors” has been cited.
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) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office
encourages exercise whether it’s athletic-level or everyday
walking to enhance body health and cartilage metabolism as this
Nutrition may improve osteoarthritis indications,
too. Nutrients like glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate have been
researched and recorded to slow the progression
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 take part
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 goal of osteoarthritis treatment is to slow its progression, relieve
its pain, and increase any reduced function. (3) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office understands
well the chondroprotective nature of proper nutrition!
