Watertown Wellness Center Cares for Spinal Discs with Nutrition and Knowledge

What do you know about the nutrition of the discs in your spine? Your Watertown chiropractor is well acquainted with them! Not a day goes by that your Watertown chiropractor is not caring for spinal discs. The discs in the spine have a high metabolism that needs oxygen, glucose, chondroitin sulfate and minerals in order for it to escape degenerative change. Let’s consider how Watertown chiropractic guided nutrition can ease and develop the health of the human disc. Its nutritional balance is delicate and quite receptive to nutrition and Watertown chiropractic treatment.

THE ROLE OF DISC DEGENERATION

The reduction of chondroitin sulfate  within the intervertebral disc during Watertown degenerative disc disease creates 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 experiences a significant drop in chondroitin sulfate (called glycosaminoglycan) in the disc structure. This degeneration happens throughout the entire disc. These changes contribute to an appreciation of the possible influence of chondroitin sulfate on the disc biology and the development of therapeutic approaches for disc regeneration and repair. (1) Watertown Wellness Center takes note of this to help Watertown chiropractic disc degeneration patients.

ANTI-INFLAMMATORY

Not only is chondroitin sulfate vital for the health of your Watertown disc and its capability to fight degeneration, but chondroitin sulfate is a slow-acting anti-inflammatory drug for treating osteoarthritis and low back pain. Watertown inflammation influences disc health status. Chondroitin sulfate does not 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 revealed to bring back the degenerative disc cells when disc cells are placed in this umbilical fluid known as Wharton’s Jelly. Captivatingly this disc cell restorative fluid contains chondroitin sulfate which is the chemical making up the intervertebral disc. (3) Also of interest 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) Watertown Wellness Center makes available a high-quality disc nutritional supplement that explicitly has chondroitin sulfate and a daily multivitamin, amino acid, enzyme, and herb formula incorporating the B vitamins to lower inflammation. Watertown chiropractic patients describe this as an advantageous adjunct to their Watertown chiropractic care.

SPINAL MANIPULATION PLUS NUTRITION

The value of Watertown chiropractic nutrition is additionally shown when joined with Watertown chiropractic spinal manipulation. The physiological effects of spinal manipulation showed that it influenced disc physiology mainly through water flow via water diffusion and molecular transport into the disc, which are important for the health of the disc. (5) Watertown Wellness Center understands the combined importance of supplying the nutrients of a good disc supplement and daily multivitamin with Watertown spinal manipulation to influence diffusion of water and molecular chemicals into the disc. Watertown Wellness Center is well skilled with spinal manipulation to do this!

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