Fort Wayne Osteoarthritis Benefits from Chiropractic Care

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 article describes.


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.
