Chondroprotective…a beautiful word to your
San Jose chiropractor who is all about protecting the cartilage of
San Jose back pain and spine-related pain sufferers in addition to San Jose knee pain sufferers with
osteoarthritis. When such pain arises, a reduction of beneficial nutrients often follows. Luckily,
chiropractic care options at Chiropractic Solutions like spinal manipulation, exercise, and nutrition are
protective as well as alleviating.
Chondro refers to cartilage while protective
means, well, protective. When it comes to musculoskeletal pain
like San Joseback pain or knee pain, chondroprotective agents are beneficial.
In newer studies, the term “chondroprotectors” has been mentioned.
More specifically in one study, glucosamine exhibited
a chondroprotective action on osteoarthritis by preventing type
II collagen degradation. In athletes, such collagen degradation associated
with cartilage metabolism rose. (1) Chiropractic Solutions
encourages 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 research projects.
(2) Chondroprotectors - biological agents that add to the
regeneration of the cartilage surface and joint capsule and participate
in articular cartilage metabolism – come into play when there is a reduction
in chondroitin sulfate and ongoing loss of hyaline
cartilage as seen in osteoarthritis and low
back pain. The goal of osteoarthritis treatment is to reduce its progression, relieve
its pain, and enhance any reduced function. (3) Chiropractic Solutions knows
well the chondroprotective nature of proper nutrition!

At Chiropractic Solutions, chiropractic care integrates
various methods to reduce
pain and protect the body’s joints and cartilage. Spinal manipulation is the anticipated
chiropractic treatment approach while adaptation of its
distractive principles has been applied to the knee for osteoarthritic knee pain relief. Knee distractionis growing in research support as to its success in relieving
pain and improving
joint space width. One paper reported that it lasted up
to 9 years. (4) Chiropractic Solutions is all for these chondroprotective
approaches to knee as well as San Jose back
