Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic Cares for Spinal Discs with Nutrition and Knowledge

What do you know about the nutrition of the discs in your spine? Your Eugene chiropractor knows a lot about them! Not a day goes by that your Eugene 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 avoid degenerative change. Let’s look at how Eugene chiropractic guided nutrition can alleviate and improve the health of the human disc. Its nutritional balance is delicate and quite responsive to nutrition and Eugene chiropractic treatment.

HOW DISC DEGENERATION PLAYS A ROLE

The reduction of chondroitin sulfate  within the intervertebral disc during Eugene degenerative disc disease results in a decrease in tissue hydration, a loss of fluid movement, cell death (aka apoptosis), a loss of nerve growth inhibition and finally, the loss of disc function. Aging experiences a significant drop in chondroitin sulfate (called glycosaminoglycan) in the disc structure. This degeneration takes place throughout the entire disc. These changes offer an appreciation of the possible impact of chondroitin sulfate on the disc biology and the development of therapeutic methods for disc regeneration and repair.

ANTI-INFLAMMATORY

Not only is chondroitin sulfate important for the health of your Eugene disc and its ability to fight degeneration, but chondroitin sulfate is a slow-acting anti-inflammatory drug for doctoring osteoarthritis and low back pain. Eugene 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 damage organs such as the liver, heart and kidneys. (2) A source of chondroitin sulfate is from human umbilical cord which is revealed to bring back the degenerative disc cells when disc cells are placed in this umbilical fluid known as Wharton’s Jelly. Captivatingly this disc cell restorative fluid comprises chondroitin sulfate which is the chemical creating 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) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic offers a high-quality disc nutritional supplement that explicitly has chondroitin sulfate and a daily multivitamin, amino acid, enzyme, and herb formula containing the B vitamins to lower inflammation. Eugene chiropractic patients find this a beneficial adjunct to their Eugene chiropractic care.

SPINAL MANIPULATION PLUS NUTRITION

The benefit of Eugene chiropractic nutrition is additionally revealed when combined with Eugene chiropractic spinal manipulation. The physiological effects of spinal manipulation displayed that it guided disc physiology primarily through water flow via water diffusion and molecular transport into the disc, which are important for the health of the disc. (5) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic understands the joint importance of supplying the nutrients of a good disc supplement and daily multivitamin with Eugene spinal manipulation to affect dispersement of water and molecular chemicals into the disc. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic is well skilled with spinal manipulation to do this!

This study puts in perspective the role of Cox Technic protocols in the treatment and prevention of Eugene disc degeneration and its resultant disc herniation. The effects of Eugene chiropractic on intervertebral disk matrix and metabolic enzymes in rats with cervical disc degeneration and arthritis revealed that chiropractic may better the degeneration in rats with cervical disc degeneration and arthritis by regulating the intervertebral disc matrix system and relevant metabolic enzymes.
