Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture Cares for Spinal Discs with Nutrition and Knowledge

What do you know about the nutrition of the discs in your spine? Your Peoria chiropractor is well acquainted with them! Not a day goes by that your Peoria chiropractor isn’t working with spinal discs. The discs in the spine have a high metabolism that requires oxygen, glucose, chondroitin sulfate and minerals in order for it to avoid degenerative change. Let’s look at how Peoria chiropractic guided nutrition can stabilize and improve the health of the human disc. Its nutritional balance is delicate and quite receptive to nutrition and Peoria chiropractic treatment.

THE ROLE OF DISC DEGENERATION

The depletion of chondroitin sulfate  inside the intervertebral disc during Peoria 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 sees a significant decrease in chondroitin sulfate (called glycosaminoglycan) in the disc structure. This degeneration happens throughout the whole disc. These changes offer an appreciation of the potential influence of chondroitin sulfate on the disc biology and the expansion of therapeutic methods for disc regeneration and repair. (1) Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture takes note of this to help Peoria chiropractic disc degeneration patients.

ANTI-INFLAMMATORY

Not only is chondroitin sulfate vital for the health of your Peoria disc and its capability to resist degeneration, but chondroitin sulfate is a slow-acting anti-inflammatory drug for doctoring osteoarthritis and low back pain. Peoria inflammation influences disc health status. Chondroitin sulfate does not 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 revealed to reestablish the degenerative disc cells when disc cells are placed in this umbilical fluid called Wharton’s Jelly. Captivatingly this disc cell restorative fluid has chondroitin sulfate which is the chemical making up 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) Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture offers a high-quality disc nutritional supplement that explicitly has chondroitin sulfate and a daily multivitamin, amino acid, enzyme, and herb formula incorporating the B vitamins to lower inflammation. Peoria chiropractic patients describe this as valuable addition to their Peoria chiropractic care.

SPINAL MANIPULATION PLUS NUTRITION

The value of Peoria chiropractic nutrition is additionally revealed when coupled with Peoria chiropractic spinal manipulation. The physiological effects of spinal manipulation displayed that it influenced disc physiology mainly via water flow via water diffusion and molecular transport into the disc, which are important for the health of the disc. (5) Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture understands the joint importance of providing the nutrients of a good disc supplement and daily multivitamin with Peoria spinal manipulation to influence dispersement of water and molecular chemicals into the disc. Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture is well experienced with spinal manipulation to do this!

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