What do you know about the nutrition of the discs in your spine? Your Augusta chiropractor knows a lot about them! Not a day goes by that your Augusta 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 escape degenerative change. Let us study how Augusta chiropractic guided nutrition can ease and develop the health of the human disc. Its nutritional balance is delicate and quite receptive to nutrition and Augusta chiropractic treatment.
HOW DISC DEGENERATION PLAYS A ROLE
The depletion of chondroitin sulfate within the intervertebral disc during Augusta degenerative disc disease creates a decrease 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 takes place throughout the whole disc. These changes contribute to an appreciation of the potential influence of chondroitin sulfate on the disc biology and the expansion of therapeutic methods for disc regeneration and repair. (1) Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic takes note of this to help Augusta chiropractic disc degeneration patients.
Not only is chondroitin sulfate important for the health of your Augusta disc and its capability to resist degeneration, but chondroitin sulfate is a slow-acting anti-inflammatory drug for treating osteoarthritis and low back pain. Augusta inflammation influences disc health status. Chondroitin sulfate does not have the adverse side effects of non–steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs that can injure 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 comprises chondroitin sulfate which is the chemical making up 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) Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic makes available a high-quality disc nutritional supplement that specifically has chondroitin sulfate and a daily multivitamin, amino acid, enzyme, and herb formula containing the B vitamins to reduce inflammation. Augusta chiropractic patients find this valuable adjunct to their Augusta chiropractic care.
SPINAL MANIPULATION PLUS NUTRITION
The benefit of Augusta chiropractic nutrition is further revealed when coupled with Augusta 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) Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic comprehends the joint importance of providing the nutrients of a good disc supplement and daily multivitamin with Augusta spinal manipulation to influence dispersement of water and molecular chemicals into the disc. Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic is well skilled with spinal manipulation to do this!
This study highlights the role of Cox Technic procedures in the treatment and prevention of Augusta disc degeneration and its subsequent disc herniation in good perspective. The effects of Augusta chiropractic on intervertebral disk matrix and metabolic enzymes in rats with cervical disc degeneration and arthritis showed that chiropractic may improve the degeneration in rats with cervical disc degeneration and arthritis by controlling the intervertebral disc matrix system and related metabolic enzymes.
