Chondroprotective…a beautiful word to your
Pensacola chiropractor who is all about protecting the cartilage of
Pensacola back pain and spine-related pain sufferers in addition to Pensacola knee pain sufferers with
osteoarthritis. When such pain rises, a reduction of beneficial nutrients often follows. Luckily,
chiropractic care options at Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center like spinal manipulation, exercise, and nutrition are
protective and relieving.
Chondro refers to cartilage while protective
means, well, protective. When caring for musculoskeletal pain
like Pensacolaback pain or knee pain, chondroprotective agents are beneficial.
In recent studies, the term “chondroprotectors” has been cited.
More specifically in a study, glucosamine showed
a chondroprotective action on osteoarthritis by blocking type
II collagen degradation. In athletes, such collagen degradation related to cartilage metabolism rose. (1) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center

Nutrition may improve osteoarthritis indications,
as well. Nutrients like glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate have been
researched and documented to slow the progress
of osteoarthritis of the knee in many well-done research projects.
(2) Chondroprotectors - biological agents that enhance the
regeneration of the cartilage surface and joint capsule and take part
in articular cartilage metabolism – come into play when there is a decrease
in chondroitin sulfate and progressive 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 diminished function. (3) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center understands
well the chondroprotective nature of proper nutrition!
