Chondroprotective…a beautiful word to your
Watertown chiropractor who is all about protecting the cartilage of
Watertown back pain and spine-related pain sufferers in addition to Watertown knee pain sufferers with
osteoarthritis. When such pain happens, a reduction of beneficial nutrients often accompanies it. Fortunately,
chiropractic care options at Watertown Wellness Center like spinal manipulation, exercise, and nutrition are
protective as well as alleviating.
Chondro describes cartilage while protective
means, well, protective. When it comes to musculoskeletal pain
like Watertownback pain or knee pain, chondroprotective agents are helpful.
In newer studies, the term “chondroprotectors” has been cited.
More specifically in one study, glucosamine demonstrated
a chondroprotective action on osteoarthritis by preventing type
II collagen degradation. In athletes, such collagen degradation related to cartilage metabolism rose. (1) Watertown Wellness Center
encourages exercise whether it’s athletic-level or everyday
walking to enhance body health and cartilage metabolism as this
Nutrition may improve osteoarthritis symptoms,
as well. Nutrients like glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate have been
researched and recorded to slow the progression
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 – work when there is a reduction
in chondroitin sulfate and progressive loss of hyaline
cartilage as observed in osteoarthritis in addition to low
back pain. The aim of treatment of
osteoarthritis is to reduce its progression, ease
its pain, and increase any reduced function. (3) Watertown Wellness Center understands
well the chondroprotective nature of proper nutrition!
