Chondroprotective…a beautiful word to your
Minster chiropractor who is all about protecting the cartilage of
Minster back pain and spine-related pain sufferers in addition to Minster knee pain sufferers with
osteoarthritis. When such pain rises, a reduction of beneficial nutrients often accompanies it. Fortunately,
chiropractic care options at Minster Chiropractic Center like spinal manipulation, exercise, and nutrition are
protective and relieving.
Chondro describes cartilage while protective
means, well, protective. When it comes to musculoskeletal pain
like Minsterback pain or knee pain, chondroprotective agents are helpful.
In newer studies, the term “chondroprotectors” has been cited.
More specifically in a study, glucosamine showed
a chondroprotective action on osteoarthritis by preventing type
II collagen degradation. In athletes, such collagen degradation related to cartilage metabolism increased. (1) Minster Chiropractic Center
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
studied and recorded to slow the progression
of osteoarthritis of the knee in many well-designed studies.
(2) Chondroprotectors - biological agents that enhance the
regeneration of the cartilage surface and joint capsule and participate
in articular cartilage metabolism – work when there is a decrease
in chondroitin sulfate and increasing loss of hyaline
cartilage as seen in osteoarthritis and low
back pain. The aim of osteoarthritis treatment is to reduce its progression, relieve
its pain, and enhance any reduced function. (3) Minster Chiropractic Center understands
well the chondroprotective nature of proper nutrition!
