Malverne Osteoarthritis Benefits from Chiropractic Care

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 article describes.


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 and 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!


At Malverne Health & Wellness, chiropractic care integrates a variety of approaches to lessen pain and protect the body’s joints and cartilage. Spinal manipulation is the expected chiropractic treatment approach while adaptation of its distractive principles has been created for the knee for osteoarthritic knee pain relief. Knee distractionis gaining in research support as to its success in relieving pain and increasing joint space width. A paper reported that it continued for up to 9 years. (4) Malverne Health & Wellness is all for these chondroprotective approaches to knee as well as Malverne back pain!
