Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries Cares for Spinal Discs with Nutrition and Knowledge

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

THE ROLE OF DISC DEGENERATION

The depletion of chondroitin sulfate  within the intervertebral disc during Manchester degenerative disc disease results in a reduction 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 (known as glycosaminoglycan) in the disc structure. This degeneration takes place throughout the whole disc. These changes offer an appreciation of the possible influence of chondroitin sulfate on the disc biology and the development of therapeutic approaches for disc regeneration and repair.

ANTI-INFLAMMATORY

Not only is chondroitin sulfate important for the health of your Manchester disc and its capability to fight degeneration, but chondroitin sulfate is a slow-acting anti-inflammatory drug for taking care of osteoarthritis and low back pain. Manchester inflammation plays a role in disc health status. Chondroitin sulfate does not have the unfavorable side effects of non–steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs that can harm 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 known as Wharton’s Jelly. Interestingly this disc cell restorative fluid comprises 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) Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries offers a high-quality disc nutritional supplement that explicitly contains chondroitin sulfate and a daily multivitamin, amino acid, enzyme, and herb formula incorporating the B vitamins to reduce inflammation. Manchester chiropractic patients describe this as valuable addition to their Manchester chiropractic care.

SPINAL MANIPULATION PLUS NUTRITION

The benefit of Manchester chiropractic nutrition is additionally shown when combined with Manchester chiropractic spinal manipulation. The physiological effects of spinal manipulation showed that it influenced disc physiology mainly through water flow via water diffusion and molecular transport into the disc, which are important for the health of the disc. (5) Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries understands the joint importance of providing the nutrients of a good disc supplement and daily multivitamin with Manchester spinal manipulation to influence diffusion of water and molecular chemicals into the disc. Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries is well experienced with spinal manipulation to do this!

This study highlights the role of Cox Technic procedures in the treatment and prevention of Manchester disc degeneration and its resultant disc herniation in good perspective. The effects of Manchester chiropractic on intervertebral disk matrix and metabolic enzymes in rats with cervical disc degeneration and arthritis showed that chiropractic may enhance the degeneration in rats with cervical disc degeneration and arthritis by adjusting the intervertebral disc matrix system and relevant metabolic enzymes.
