Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre Cares for Spinal Discs with Nutrition and Knowledge

What do you know about the nutrition of the discs in your spine? Your Toronto chiropractor is well acquainted with them! Not a day goes by that your Toronto chiropractor is not working with spinal discs. The discs in the spine have a high metabolism that requires oxygen, glucose, chondroitin sulfate and minerals for its ability to avoid degenerative change. Let’s study how Toronto chiropractic guided nutrition can ease and develop the health of the human disc. Its nutritional balance is sensitive and quite responsive to nutrition and Toronto chiropractic treatment.

THE ROLE OF DISC DEGENERATION

The reduction of chondroitin sulfate  within the intervertebral disc during Toronto 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 ultimately, the loss of disc function. Aging experiences a significant decrease in chondroitin sulfate (called glycosaminoglycan) in the disc structure. This degeneration happens throughout the entire disc. These changes contribute to an appreciation of the potential influence of chondroitin sulfate on the disc biology and the growth of therapeutic approaches for disc regeneration and repair. (1) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre takes note of this to help Toronto chiropractic disc degeneration patients.

ANTI-INFLAMMATORY

Not only is chondroitin sulfate vital for the health of your Toronto disc and its capability to fight degeneration, but chondroitin sulfate is a slow-acting anti-inflammatory drug for taking care of osteoarthritis and low back pain. Toronto inflammation plays a role in disc health status. Chondroitin sulfate doesn’t have the unfavorable 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 shown to reestablish the degenerative disc cells when disc cells are placed in this umbilical fluid called Wharton’s Jelly. Captivatingly this disc cell restorative fluid contains chondroitin sulfate which is the chemical forming the intervertebral disc. (3) Also of curiosity 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) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre makes available a high-quality disc nutritional supplement that specifically has chondroitin sulfate and a daily multivitamin, amino acid, enzyme, and herb formula containing the B vitamins to lower inflammation. Toronto chiropractic patients describe this as an advantageous adjunct to their Toronto chiropractic care.

SPINAL MANIPULATION PLUS NUTRITION

The benefit of Toronto chiropractic nutrition is further shown when combined with Toronto chiropractic spinal manipulation. The physiological effects of spinal manipulation showed that it affected disc physiology mostly via water flow via water diffusion and molecular transport into the disc, which are important for the health of the disc. (5) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre understands the joint importance of supplying the nutrients of a good disc supplement and daily multivitamin with Toronto spinal manipulation to affect diffusion of water and molecular chemicals into the disc. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre is well experienced with spinal manipulation to do this!

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