Hollstrom & Associates Inc Cares for Spinal Discs with Nutrition and Knowledge

What do you know about the nutrition of the discs in your spine? Your Largo chiropractor knows a lot about them! Not a day goes by that your Largo chiropractor isn’t working with spinal discs. The discs in the spine have a high metabolism that requires oxygen, glucose, chondroitin sulfate and minerals for its ability to escape degenerative change. Let us consider how Largo chiropractic guided nutrition can stabilize and improve the health of the human disc. Its nutritional balance is delicate and quite responsive to nutrition and Largo chiropractic treatment.

HOW DISC DEGENERATION PLAYS A ROLE

The depletion of chondroitin sulfate  within the intervertebral disc during Largo degenerative disc disease creates a reduction 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 experiences a significant drop in chondroitin sulfate (called glycosaminoglycan) in the disc structure. This degeneration takes place throughout the whole disc. These changes offer an appreciation of the potential impact of chondroitin sulfate on the disc biology and the development of therapeutic methods for disc regeneration and repair.

ANTI-INFLAMMATORY

Not only is chondroitin sulfate vital for the health of your Largo disc and its capability to resist degeneration, but chondroitin sulfate is a slow-acting anti-inflammatory drug for treating osteoarthritis and low back pain. Largo 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 injure organs such as the liver, heart and kidneys. (2) A source of chondroitin sulfate is from human umbilical cord which is shown to restore the degenerative disc cells when disc cells are placed in this umbilical fluid called Wharton’s Jelly. Captivatingly this disc cell restorative fluid contains 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) Hollstrom & Associates Inc 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. Largo chiropractic patients find this valuable addition to their Largo chiropractic care.

SPINAL MANIPULATION PLUS NUTRITION

The value of Largo chiropractic nutrition is further revealed when coupled with Largo chiropractic spinal manipulation. The physiological effects of spinal manipulation showed that it guided disc physiology primarily through water flow via water diffusion and molecular transport into the disc, which are important for the health of the disc. (5) Hollstrom & Associates Inc understands the combined importance of providing the nutrients of a good disc supplement and daily multivitamin with Largo spinal manipulation to affect dispersement of water and molecular chemicals into the disc. Hollstrom & Associates Inc is well skilled with spinal manipulation to do this!

This study highlights the role of Cox Technic protocols in the treatment and prevention of Largo disc degeneration and its ensuing disc herniation in good perspective. The effects of Largo chiropractic on intervertebral disk matrix and metabolic enzymes in rats with cervical disc degeneration and arthritis showed that chiropractic may enhance the degeneration in rats with cervical disc degeneration and arthritis by adjusting the intervertebral disc matrix system and relevant metabolic enzymes.
