Chondroprotective…a beautiful word to your
Malverne chiropractor who is all about protecting the cartilage of
Malverne back pain and spine-related pain sufferers along with Malverne knee pain sufferers with
osteoarthritis. When such pain arises, a decrease
in beneficial nutrients often follows. Luckily,
chiropractic care options at Malverne Health & Wellness like spinal manipulation, exercise, and nutrition are
protective and relieving.
Chondro refers to cartilage while protective
means, well, protective. When it comes to musculoskeletal pain
like Malverneback pain or knee pain, chondroprotective agents are essential.
In recent studies, the term “chondroprotectors” has been mentioned.
More specifically in a study, glucosamine showed
a chondroprotective action on osteoarthritis by preventing type
II collagen degradation. In athletes, such collagen degradation related to cartilage metabolism increased. (1) Malverne Health & Wellness
encourages exercise whether it’s athletic-level or everyday
walking to enhance body health and cartilage metabolism like this
Nutrition may improve osteoarthritis symptoms,
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 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 in addition to low
back pain. The aim of treatment of
osteoarthritis is to slow its progression, ease
its pain, and improve any diminished function. (3) Malverne Health & Wellness understands
well the chondroprotective nature of proper nutrition!
