Cross Chiropractic Center Cares for Spinal Discs with Nutrition and Knowledge

What do you know about the nutrition of the discs in your spine? Your Sandy Springs chiropractor knows a lot about them! Not a day goes by that your Sandy Springs chiropractor is not 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 Sandy Springs chiropractic guided nutrition can ease and improve the health of the human disc. Its nutritional balance is delicate and quite receptive to nutrition and Sandy Springs chiropractic treatment.

HOW DISC DEGENERATION PLAYS A ROLE

The depletion of chondroitin sulfate  inside the intervertebral disc during Sandy Springs degenerative disc disease results in a reduction in tissue hydration, a loss of fluid movement, cell death (also called apoptosis), a loss of nerve growth inhibition and ultimately, the loss of disc function. Aging sees a significant drop in chondroitin sulfate (called glycosaminoglycan) in the disc structure. This degeneration happens throughout the entire disc. These changes contribute to an appreciation of the possible influence of chondroitin sulfate on the disc biology and the expansion of therapeutic approaches for disc regeneration and repair.

ANTI-INFLAMMATORY

Not only is chondroitin sulfate vital for the health of your Sandy Springs disc and its ability to fight degeneration, but chondroitin sulfate is a slow-acting anti-inflammatory drug for taking care of osteoarthritis and low back pain. Sandy Springs 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 damage 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 put in this umbilical fluid called Wharton’s Jelly. Captivatingly this disc cell restorative fluid contains chondroitin sulfate which is the chemical creating 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) Cross Chiropractic Center offers a high-quality disc nutritional supplement that explicitly contains chondroitin sulfate and a daily multivitamin, amino acid, enzyme, and herb formula incorporating the B vitamins to lower inflammation. Sandy Springs chiropractic patients describe this as a beneficial addition to their Sandy Springs chiropractic care.

SPINAL MANIPULATION PLUS NUTRITION

The benefit of Sandy Springs chiropractic nutrition is additionally revealed when combined with Sandy Springs chiropractic spinal manipulation. The physiological effects of spinal manipulation showed that it affected disc physiology mostly through water flow via water diffusion and molecular transport into the disc, which are important for the health of the disc. (5) Cross Chiropractic Center comprehends the combined importance of providing the nutrients of a good disc supplement and daily multivitamin with Sandy Springs spinal manipulation to influence diffusion of water and molecular chemicals into the disc. Cross Chiropractic Center 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 Sandy Springs disc degeneration and its resultant disc herniation. The effects of Sandy 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 controlling the intervertebral disc matrix system and relevant metabolic enzymes.
