Chondroprotective…a beautiful word to your Montreal chiropractor who is all about protecting the cartilage of Montreal back pain and spine-related pain sufferers along with Montreal knee pain sufferers with osteoarthritis. When such pain arises, a decrease in beneficial nutrients often accompanies it. Luckily, chiropractic care options at Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic 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 Montrealback pain or knee pain, chondroprotective agents are helpful. In recent studies, the term “chondroprotectors” has been mentioned. More specifically in one study, glucosamine demonstrated a chondroprotective action on osteoarthritis by blocking type II collagen degradation. In athletes, such collagen degradation related to cartilage metabolism rose.

Nutrition may improve osteoarthritis indications, too. Nutrients like glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate have been studied and recorded to slow the progression of osteoarthritis of the knee in many well-done studies.

The goal of osteoarthritis treatment is to reduce its progression, ease its pain, and enhance any diminished function.
