The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR Cares for Spinal Discs with Nutrition and Knowledge

What do you know about the nutrition of the discs in your spine? Your Colorado Springs chiropractor knows a lot about them! Not less than daily is it that your Colorado Springs chiropractor isn’t treating spinal discs. The discs in the spine have a high metabolism that demands oxygen, glucose, chondroitin sulfate and minerals in order for it to escape degenerative change. Let us look at how Colorado Springs chiropractic guided nutrition can ease and improve the health of the human disc. Its nutritional balance is sensitive and quite receptive to nutrition and Colorado Springs chiropractic treatment.

HOW DISC DEGENERATION PLAYS A ROLE

The depletion of chondroitin sulfate  within the intervertebral disc during Colorado Springs 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 (known as glycosaminoglycan) in the disc structure. This degeneration happens throughout the entire disc. These changes give an appreciation of the possible influence of chondroitin sulfate on the disc biology and the development of therapeutic methods for disc regeneration and repair. (1) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR passes this information along to Colorado Springs chiropractic disc degeneration patients.

ANTI-INFLAMMATORY

Not only is chondroitin sulfate vital for the health of your Colorado Springs 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. Colorado Springs inflammation plays a role in disc health status. Chondroitin sulfate does not have the adverse 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 bring back the degenerative disc cells when disc cells are put in this umbilical fluid known as Wharton’s Jelly. Captivatingly this disc cell restorative fluid has 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) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR makes available a high-quality disc nutritional supplement that specifically has chondroitin sulfate and a daily multivitamin, amino acid, enzyme, and herb formula incorporating the B vitamins to lower inflammation. Colorado Springs chiropractic patients find this valuable addition to their Colorado Springs chiropractic care.

SPINAL MANIPULATION PLUS NUTRITION

The benefit of Colorado Springs chiropractic nutrition is additionally revealed when coupled with Colorado Springs 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) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR comprehends the joint importance of providing the nutrients of a good disc supplement and daily multivitamin with Colorado Springs spinal manipulation to influence diffusion of water and molecular chemicals into the disc. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR is well experienced with spinal manipulation to do this!

This study puts in perspective the role of Cox Technic protocols in the treatment and prevention of Colorado Springs disc degeneration and its subsequent disc herniation. The effects of Colorado Springs chiropractic on intervertebral disk matrix and metabolic enzymes in rats with cervical disc degeneration and arthritis revealed that chiropractic may improve the degeneration in rats with cervical disc degeneration and arthritis by regulating the intervertebral disc matrix system and related metabolic enzymes.
