Satterwhite Chiropractic Cares for Spinal Discs with Nutrition and Knowledge

What do you know about the nutrition of the discs in your spine? Your Oxford chiropractor is well acquainted with them! Not less than daily is it that your Oxford 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 Oxford chiropractic guided nutrition can alleviate and develop the health of the human disc. Its nutritional balance is delicate and quite responsive to nutrition and Oxford chiropractic treatment.

THE ROLE OF DISC DEGENERATION

The depletion of chondroitin sulfate  within the intervertebral disc during Oxford degenerative disc disease results in a decrease 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 experiences a significant drop in chondroitin sulfate (known as glycosaminoglycan) in the disc structure. This degeneration takes place throughout the entire disc. These changes contribute to an appreciation of the potential impact of chondroitin sulfate on the disc biology and the growth of therapeutic methods for disc regeneration and repair.

ANTI-INFLAMMATORY

Not only is chondroitin sulfate vital for the health of your Oxford disc and its capability to resist degeneration, but chondroitin sulfate is a slow-acting anti-inflammatory drug for doctoring osteoarthritis and low back pain. Oxford inflammation plays a role in 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 revealed 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 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) Satterwhite Chiropractic offers a high-quality disc nutritional supplement that explicitly contains chondroitin sulfate and a daily multivitamin, amino acid, enzyme, and herb formula containing the B vitamins to reduce inflammation. Oxford chiropractic patients describe this as an advantageous adjunct to their Oxford chiropractic care.

SPINAL MANIPULATION PLUS NUTRITION

The benefit of Oxford chiropractic nutrition is further revealed when coupled with Oxford chiropractic spinal manipulation. The physiological effects of spinal manipulation displayed that it guided disc physiology primarily via water flow via water diffusion and molecular transport into the disc, which are important for the health of the disc. (5) Satterwhite Chiropractic understands the combined importance of providing the nutrients of a good disc supplement and daily multivitamin with Oxford spinal manipulation to influence diffusion of water and molecular chemicals into the disc. Satterwhite Chiropractic is well experienced with spinal manipulation to do this!

This study highlights the role of Cox Technic procedures in the treatment and prevention of Oxford disc degeneration and its resultant disc herniation in good perspective. The effects of Oxford chiropractic on intervertebral disk matrix and metabolic enzymes in rats with cervical disc degeneration and arthritis showed that chiropractic may enhance the degeneration in rats with cervical disc degeneration and arthritis by controlling the intervertebral disc matrix system and relevant metabolic enzymes.
