Chondroprotective…a beautiful word to your
Largo chiropractor who is all about protecting the cartilage of
Largo back pain and spine-related pain sufferers in addition to Largo knee pain sufferers with
osteoarthritis. When such pain happens, a decrease
in beneficial nutrients often follows. Luckily,
chiropractic care options at Hollstrom & Associates Inc like spinal manipulation, exercise, and nutrition are
protective and alleviating.
Chondro refers to cartilage while protective
means, well, protective. When it comes to musculoskeletal pain
like Largoback pain or knee pain, chondroprotective agents are valuable.
In newer studies, the term “chondroprotectors” has been mentioned.
More specifically in one study, glucosamine showed
a chondroprotective action on osteoarthritis by blocking type
II collagen degradation. In athletes, such collagen degradation related to cartilage metabolism rose. (1) Hollstrom & Associates Inc
encourages 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
studied and documented to slow the progression
of osteoarthritis of the knee in many well-done 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 decrease
in chondroitin sulfate and ongoing loss of hyaline
cartilage as observed in osteoarthritis in addition to low
back pain. The goal of treatment of
osteoarthritis is to reduce its progression, relieve
its pain, and increase any reduced function. (3) Hollstrom & Associates Inc knows
well the chondroprotective nature of proper nutrition!
