Minster Chiropractic Center Cares for Spinal Discs with Nutrition and Knowledge

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

THE ROLE OF DISC DEGENERATION

The reduction of chondroitin sulfate  inside the intervertebral disc during Minster 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 sees a significant decrease in chondroitin sulfate (called glycosaminoglycan) in the disc structure. This degeneration takes place throughout the entire disc. These changes offer an appreciation of the potential influence of chondroitin sulfate on the disc biology and the development of therapeutic approaches for disc regeneration and repair.

ANTI-INFLAMMATORY

Not only is chondroitin sulfate vital for the health of your Minster disc and its ability to resist degeneration, but chondroitin sulfate is a slow-acting anti-inflammatory drug for treating osteoarthritis and low back pain. Minster inflammation influences disc health status. Chondroitin sulfate does not have the unfavorable side effects of non–steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs that can harm organs such as the liver, heart and kidneys. (2) A source of chondroitin sulfate is from human umbilical cord which is shown to restore the degenerative disc cells when disc cells are placed in this umbilical fluid known as Wharton’s Jelly. Interestingly this disc cell restorative fluid comprises chondroitin sulfate which is the chemical creating the intervertebral disc. (3) Also of interest 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) Minster Chiropractic Center makes available a high-quality disc nutritional supplement that explicitly has chondroitin sulfate and a daily multivitamin, amino acid, enzyme, and herb formula containing the B vitamins to lower inflammation. Minster chiropractic patients find this an advantageous adjunct to their Minster chiropractic care.

SPINAL MANIPULATION PLUS NUTRITION

The value of Minster chiropractic nutrition is further revealed when joined with Minster 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) Minster Chiropractic Center understands the joint importance of providing the nutrients of a good disc supplement and daily multivitamin with Minster spinal manipulation to affect diffusion of water and molecular chemicals into the disc. Minster Chiropractic Center is well skilled with spinal manipulation to do this!

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