Chondroprotective…a beautiful word to your
Fort Wayne chiropractor who is all about protecting the cartilage of
Fort Wayne back pain and spine-related pain sufferers in addition to Fort Wayne knee pain sufferers with
osteoarthritis. When such pain happens, a reduction of beneficial nutrients often follows. Luckily,
chiropractic care options at Aaron Chiropractic Clinic like spinal manipulation, exercise, and nutrition are
protective as well as relieving.
Chondro describes cartilage while protective
means, well, protective. When it comes to musculoskeletal pain
like Fort Wayneback pain or knee pain, chondroprotective agents are beneficial.
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) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic
suggests exercise whether it’s athletic-level or everyday
walking to enhance body health and cartilage metabolism like this
Nutrition may improve osteoarthritis indications,
too. Nutrients like glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate have been
studied and documented to slow the progression
of osteoarthritis of the knee in many well-designed studies.
(2) Chondroprotectors - biological agents that add to 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 aim of treatment of
osteoarthritis is to slow its progression, relieve
its pain, and improve any diminished function. (3) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic knows
well the chondroprotective nature of proper nutrition!

At Aaron Chiropractic Clinic, chiropractic care integrates
various approaches to reduce
pain and protect the body’s joints and cartilage. Spinal manipulation is the expected
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 effectiveness in alleviating
pain and increasing
joint space width. A paper reported that it continued for up
to 9 years. (4) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic is all for these chondroprotective
approaches to knee as well as Fort Wayne back
