Chondroprotective…a beautiful word to your
Manchester chiropractor who is all about protecting the cartilage of
Manchester back pain and spine-related pain sufferers along with Manchester knee pain sufferers with
osteoarthritis. When such pain happens, a reduction of beneficial nutrients often follows. Luckily,
chiropractic care options at Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries like spinal manipulation, exercise, and nutrition are
protective and relieving.
Chondro describes cartilage while protective
means, well, protective. When caring for musculoskeletal pain
like Manchesterback pain or knee pain, chondroprotective agents are valuable.
In newer studies, the term “chondroprotectors” has been mentioned.

a chondroprotective action on osteoarthritis by blocking type
II collagen degradation. In athletes, such collagen degradation associated
with cartilage metabolism rose. (1) Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries

Nutrition may improve osteoarthritis indications,
too. Nutrients like glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate have been
studied and documented to slow the progress
of osteoarthritis of the knee in many well-designed studies.
(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 decrease
in chondroitin sulfate and increasing loss of hyaline
cartilage as observed in osteoarthritis in addition to low
back pain. The aim of osteoarthritis treatment is to slow its progression, ease
its pain, and improve any reduced function. (3) Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries understands
