Paramus Osteoarthritis Benefits from Chiropractic Care

Chondroprotective…a beautiful word to your Paramus chiropractor who is all about protecting the cartilage of Paramus back pain and spine-related pain sufferers along with Paramus knee pain sufferers with osteoarthritis. When such pain happens, a decrease in beneficial nutrients often accompanies it. Fortunately, chiropractic care options at Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center like spinal manipulation, exercise, and nutrition are protective and relieving.

PROTECTIVE AGENTS

Chondro describes cartilage while protective means, well, protective. When it comes to musculoskeletal pain like Paramusback pain or knee pain, chondroprotective agents are valuable. In newer studies, the term “chondroprotectors” has been mentioned. More specifically in one study, glucosamine exhibited a chondroprotective action on osteoarthritis by blocking type II collagen degradation. In athletes, such collagen degradation related to cartilage metabolism rose. (1) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center suggests exercise whether it’s athletic-level or everyday walking to enhance body health and cartilage metabolism as this article details.

NUTRITIONAL AGENTS

Nutrition may improve osteoarthritis indications, too. Nutrients like glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate have been researched and documented to slow the development of osteoarthritis of the knee in many well-done studies. (2) Chondroprotectors - biological agents that add to the regeneration of the cartilage surface and joint capsule and take part in articular cartilage metabolism – come into play when there is a decrease in chondroitin sulfate and increasing loss of hyaline cartilage as seen in osteoarthritis and low back pain. The aim of treatment of osteoarthritis is to slow its progression, relieve its pain, and improve any reduced function.
