Paramus Nutrition Approaches for Degenerated Discs: Broccoli, Aloe and Grapeseed Oil

Who knew? Researchers are a fascinating breed. How they think up things to try is a curiosity! What would prompt them to think “broccoli, aloe vera and grapeseed may positively impact disc degeneration” is a wonder to Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center and surely to our Paramus chiropractic patients, but a good wonder! They just might be onto something to deal with discs that are degenerated which trigger back pain, neck pain, and disturbance of life.

PREVENTING AND POSSIBLY REVERSING DISC DEGENERATION

Paramus low back pain is very closely associated with degeneration of the intervertebral disc in the spine.  At its basic level, the Paramus degenerated disc is defined by a reduced number of cells and alteration to its tissue and extracellular matrix content. In many studies, rabbit discs are examined as they are similar to human discs. In one rabbit study, researchers studied the degenerated intervertebral disc and its response to the use of broccoli sprout extract. They thought and their study found that it had preventive and restorative effects on degenerated discs. (1) In second rabbit study, grapeseed extracts were applied to degenerated discs. Due to their being natural flavonoids with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, grapeseed extracts were evaluated to find out how their inhibitory and anabolic effects would be on degenerated discs. They showed to be restorative and preventive in terms of affecting the degraded disc tissues’ collagen fibrils. (2) In a third study, aloe vera gel was applied to degenerated discs of rabbits. Aloe vera gel stopped and reversed disc degeneration. Researchers stated that there was a statistically significant (a big deal!) gradual reversal of degenerative changes. These modifications were seen in the collagen content organization, the nucleus pulposus and annulus fibrosus cell rise, and degree of disc degeneration. (3) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center will keep following these stimulating studies and see how they will apply to human use. Maybe these results will inspire Paramus chiropractic patients to enjoy more broccoli, use grapeseed, and find a way to enjoy some aloe vera gel?
