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.
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
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. (3) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center knows
well the chondroprotective nature of proper nutrition!
