Malverne Health & Wellness Cares for Spinal Discs with Nutrition and Knowledge

What do you know about the nutrition of the discs in your spine? Your Malverne chiropractor knows a lot about them! Not a day goes by that your Malverne chiropractor isn’t caring for spinal discs. The discs in the spine have a high metabolism that needs oxygen, glucose, chondroitin sulfate and minerals for its ability to avoid degenerative change. Let us look at how Malverne chiropractic guided nutrition can ease and improve the health of the human disc. Its nutritional balance is sensitive and quite receptive to nutrition and Malverne chiropractic treatment.

HOW DISC DEGENERATION PLAYS A ROLE

The reduction of chondroitin sulfate  inside the intervertebral disc during Malverne degenerative disc disease creates a reduction in tissue hydration, a loss of fluid movement, cell death (also called apoptosis), a loss of nerve growth inhibition and finally, the loss of disc function. Aging experiences a significant decrease in chondroitin sulfate (called glycosaminoglycan) in the disc structure. This degeneration happens throughout the whole disc. These changes offer an appreciation of the possible impact of chondroitin sulfate on the disc biology and the development of therapeutic methods for disc regeneration and repair. (1) Malverne Health & Wellness notes this to help Malverne chiropractic disc degeneration patients.

ANTI-INFLAMMATORY

Not only is chondroitin sulfate important for the health of your Malverne disc and its ability to fight degeneration, but chondroitin sulfate is a slow-acting anti-inflammatory drug for taking care of osteoarthritis and low back pain. Malverne inflammation influences disc health status. Chondroitin sulfate does not have the unfavorable side effects of non–steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs that can harm organs such as the liver, heart and kidneys. (2) A source of chondroitin sulfate is from human umbilical cord which is shown to bring back the degenerative disc cells when disc cells are placed 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 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) Malverne Health & Wellness makes available a high-quality disc nutritional supplement that explicitly contains chondroitin sulfate and a daily multivitamin, amino acid, enzyme, and herb formula incorporating the B vitamins to lower inflammation. Malverne chiropractic patients describe this as valuable addition to their Malverne chiropractic care.

SPINAL MANIPULATION PLUS NUTRITION

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

This study highlights the role of Cox Technic protocols in the treatment and prevention of Malverne disc degeneration and its resultant disc herniation in good perspective. The effects of Malverne 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 regulating the intervertebral disc matrix system and related metabolic enzymes.
