Chondroprotective…a beautiful word to your
Toronto chiropractor who is all about protecting the cartilage of
Toronto back pain and spine-related pain sufferers in addition to Toronto knee pain sufferers with
osteoarthritis. When such pain happens, a decrease
in beneficial nutrients often accompanies it. Luckily,
chiropractic care options at Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre like spinal manipulation, exercise, and nutrition are
protective and relieving.
Chondro describes cartilage while protective
means, well, protective. When caring for musculoskeletal pain
like Torontoback pain or knee pain, chondroprotective agents are essential.
In newer studies, the term “chondroprotectors” has been cited.
More specifically in a study, glucosamine exhibited
a chondroprotective action on osteoarthritis by preventing type
II collagen degradation. In athletes, such collagen degradation related to cartilage metabolism rose. (1) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre
encourages exercise whether it’s athletic-level or everyday
walking to enhance body health and cartilage metabolism as this
Nutrition may improve osteoarthritis symptoms,
too. Nutrients like glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate have been
researched and recorded to slow the progression
of osteoarthritis of the knee in many well-designed studies.
(2) Chondroprotectors - biological agents that add to the
regeneration of the cartilage surface and joint capsule and participate
in articular cartilage metabolism – come into play when there is a reduction
in chondroitin sulfate and ongoing loss of hyaline
cartilage as seen in osteoarthritis and low
back pain. The goal of treatment of
osteoarthritis is to reduce its progression, relieve
its pain, and increase any reduced function. (3) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre understands
well the chondroprotective nature of proper nutrition!
