Manchester Chiropractic Nutrition: Gut, Bone, Chondroitin Sulfate

Osteoporosis and the gut. They may not seem be connected conditions beyond the fact that they both are internal body issues. Osteoporosis’ effect is often seen in deteriorated bone. Gut issues’ effect is often seen in digestion problems. Researchers today are discovering links between gut health and osteoporosis’ effect on bone health. Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries helps Manchester chiropractic patients experiencing both issues!

OSTEOPOROSIS AND THE GUT HEALTH CONNECTION

Manchester osteoporosis is very common. Gut issues are, too. Gut health change with probiotic use has grown to be more mainstream recently to address chronic diseases like autoimmune and cardiovascular diseases as well as cancer and diabetes. Today, researchers are turning to the health of the gut microbiome to address bone mass regulation which affects osteoporosis and osteopenia. (1) Senile osteoporosis is associated with a reduced bone mineral density (BMD) and altered microbiota. How these are linked in postmenopausal osteoporosis is yet unknown. A study that tried to figure this out did discover that there was decreased bacterial richness and diversity in postmenopausal osteoporosis with significant contrast in levels of phyla and genera in gut microbiota. (2) Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries sees these new discoveries linking gut health and osteoporosis as being useful in guiding Manchester osteoporosis treatment planning.

DIETARY HELP FOR OSTEOPOROSIS

Manchester chiropractic care of osteoporosis is complex incorporating spinal manipulation by way of the gentle Cox® Technic protocols, exercise, and nutrition. Looking at osteoporosis as a condition likely encompassing the microbiota of the gut, researchers are now using dietary approaches to deal with osteoporosis. Nutritionally, a chondroitin sulfate/calcium complex improved the BMD and microstructure of femur bone in rats with osteoporosis. It also modified levels of the serum bone markers. This supplement intervention of chondroitin and calcium has the potential to ease osteoporosis and its symptomatology. (3) Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries is very familiar with the effects of chondroitin sulfate for disc health and is excited that it may also benefit osteoporosis.
