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. (1) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic
suggests exercise whether it’s athletic-level or everyday
walking to enhance body health and cartilage metabolism as this
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.
(2) Chondroprotectors - biological agents that add to the
regeneration of the cartilage surface and joint capsule and participate
in articular cartilage metabolism – come into play when there is a reduction
in chondroitin sulfate and ongoing loss of hyaline
cartilage as seen in osteoarthritis in addition to low
back pain. The goal of osteoarthritis treatment is to reduce its progression, ease
its pain, and enhance any reduced function. (3) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic knows
well the chondroprotective nature of proper nutrition!
