Chiropractic Solutions Cares for Spinal Discs with Nutrition and Knowledge

What do you know about the nutrition of the discs in your spine? Your San Jose chiropractor is well acquainted with them! Not a day goes by that your San Jose chiropractor isn’t treating spinal discs. The discs in the spine have a high metabolism that demands oxygen, glucose, chondroitin sulfate and minerals in order for it to escape degenerative change. Let us study how San Jose chiropractic guided nutrition can ease and improve the health of the human disc. Its nutritional balance is delicate and quite responsive to nutrition and San Jose chiropractic treatment.

THE ROLE OF DISC DEGENERATION

The reduction of chondroitin sulfate  within the intervertebral disc during San Jose degenerative disc disease results in a reduction in tissue hydration, a loss of fluid movement, cell death (aka apoptosis), a loss of nerve growth inhibition and finally, the loss of disc function. Aging sees a significant decrease in chondroitin sulfate (known as glycosaminoglycan) in the disc structure. This degeneration happens throughout the whole disc. These changes offer an appreciation of the potential impact of chondroitin sulfate on the disc biology and the expansion of therapeutic approaches for disc regeneration and repair. (1) McMurray Chiropractic Solutions notes this to help San Jose chiropractic disc degeneration patients.

ANTI-INFLAMMATORY

Not only is chondroitin sulfate vital for the health of your San Jose disc and its capability to resist degeneration, but chondroitin sulfate is a slow-acting anti-inflammatory drug for treating osteoarthritis and low back pain. San Jose inflammation influences disc health status. Chondroitin sulfate doesn’t have the adverse 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 put in this umbilical fluid called Wharton’s Jelly. Interestingly this disc cell restorative fluid has chondroitin sulfate which is the chemical creating the intervertebral disc. (3) Also of curiosity 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) McMurray Chiropractic Solutions makes available a high-quality disc nutritional supplement that specifically contains chondroitin sulfate and a daily multivitamin, amino acid, enzyme, and herb formula incorporating the B vitamins to reduce inflammation. San Jose chiropractic patients find this valuable adjunct to their San Jose chiropractic care.

SPINAL MANIPULATION PLUS NUTRITION

The value of San Jose chiropractic nutrition is further revealed when combined with San Jose chiropractic spinal manipulation. The physiological effects of spinal manipulation displayed 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) McMurray Chiropractic Solutions understands the combined importance of supplying the nutrients of a good disc supplement and daily multivitamin with San Jose spinal manipulation to affect dispersement of water and molecular chemicals into the disc. McMurray Chiropractic Solutions is well skilled with spinal manipulation to do this!

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