Oxford Osteoarthritis Benefits from Chiropractic Care

Chondroprotective…a beautiful word to your Oxford chiropractor who is all about protecting the cartilage of Oxford back pain and spine-related pain sufferers as well as Oxford knee pain sufferers with osteoarthritis. When such pain happens, a decrease in beneficial nutrients often accompanies it. Fortunately, chiropractic care options at Satterwhite Chiropractic like spinal manipulation, exercise, and nutrition are protective as well as alleviating.

PROTECTIVE AGENTS

Chondro refers to cartilage while protective means, well, protective. When caring for musculoskeletal pain like Oxfordback pain or knee pain, chondroprotective agents are helpful. In newer studies, the term “chondroprotectors” has been cited. More specifically in one study, glucosamine demonstrated a chondroprotective action on osteoarthritis by blocking type II collagen degradation. In athletes, such collagen degradation associated with cartilage metabolism rose. (1) Satterwhite Chiropractic suggests exercise whether it’s athletic-level or everyday walking to enhance body health and cartilage metabolism as this article details.

NUTRITIONAL AGENTS

Nutrition may improve osteoarthritis indications, as well. Nutrients like glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate have been studied and recorded to slow the progress of osteoarthritis of the knee in many well-done research projects. (2) Chondroprotectors - biological agents that enhance the regeneration of the cartilage surface and joint capsule and take part in articular cartilage metabolism – work when there is a reduction in chondroitin sulfate and progressive loss of hyaline cartilage as observed in osteoarthritis and low back pain. The goal of treatment of osteoarthritis is to reduce its progression, relieve its pain, and increase any reduced function. (3) Satterwhite Chiropractic understands well the chondroprotective nature of proper nutrition!

CHIROPRACTIC PROTECTIVE AND RELIEVING AGENTS

At Satterwhite Chiropractic, chiropractic care integrates a variety of approaches to lessen pain and protect the body’s joints and cartilage. Spinal manipulation is the anticipated chiropractic treatment approach while a reworking of its distractive principles has been applied to the knee for osteoarthritic knee pain relief. Research support for distraction of the knee grows as to its success to reduce pain and improve joint space width. A paper reported that it lasted up to 9 years.
