Chondroprotective…a beautiful word to your
Colorado Springs chiropractor who is all about protecting the cartilage of
Colorado Springs back pain and spine-related pain sufferers as
well as Colorado Springs knee pain sufferers with
osteoarthritis. When such pain happens, a reduction of beneficial nutrients often follows. Luckily,
chiropractic care options at The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR like spinal manipulation, exercise, and nutrition are
protective as well as alleviating.
Chondro refers to cartilage while protective
means, well, protective. When caring for musculoskeletal pain
like Colorado Springsback pain or knee pain, chondroprotective agents are valuable.

regeneration of the cartilage surface and joint capsule and take part
in articular cartilage metabolism – work when there is a decrease
in chondroitin sulfate and progressive loss of hyaline
cartilage as observed in osteoarthritis and low
back pain. The aim of treatment of
osteoarthritis is to reduce its progression, relieve
its pain, and enhance any reduced function. (3) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR understands
well the chondroprotective nature of proper nutrition!
