Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center Cares for Spinal Discs with Nutrition and Knowledge

What do you know about the nutrition of the discs in your spine? Your Pensacola chiropractor is well acquainted with them! Not less than daily is it that your Pensacola chiropractor isn’t treating spinal discs. The discs in the spine have a high metabolism that demands oxygen, glucose, chondroitin sulfate and minerals for its ability to avoid degenerative change. Let us study how Pensacola chiropractic guided nutrition can ease and develop the health of the human disc. Its nutritional balance is sensitive and quite receptive to nutrition and Pensacola chiropractic treatment.


The depletion of chondroitin sulfate  within the intervertebral disc during Pensacola degenerative disc disease creates a decrease in tissue hydration, a loss of fluid movement, cell death (also called apoptosis), a loss of nerve growth inhibition and ultimately, the loss of disc function. Aging sees a significant drop in chondroitin sulfate (known as glycosaminoglycan) in the disc structure. This degeneration happens throughout the whole disc. These changes give an appreciation of the possible impact of chondroitin sulfate on the disc biology and the growth of therapeutic methods for disc regeneration and repair. (1) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center passes this information along to Pensacola chiropractic disc degeneration patients.


Not only is chondroitin sulfate important for the health of your Pensacola disc and its ability to fight degeneration, but chondroitin sulfate is a slow-acting anti-inflammatory drug for treating osteoarthritis and low back pain. Pensacola 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 injure organs such as the liver, heart and kidneys. (2) A source of chondroitin sulfate is from human umbilical cord which is shown to restore the degenerative disc cells when disc cells are placed in this umbilical fluid known as Wharton’s Jelly. Interestingly this disc cell restorative fluid has chondroitin sulfate which is the chemical making up the intervertebral disc. (3) Also of curiosity 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) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center makes available a high-quality disc nutritional supplement that specifically contains chondroitin sulfate and a daily multivitamin, amino acid, enzyme, and herb formula containing the B vitamins to reduce inflammation. Pensacola chiropractic patients describe this as valuable adjunct to their Pensacola chiropractic care.


The value of Pensacola chiropractic nutrition is further revealed when joined with Pensacola chiropractic spinal manipulation. The physiological effects of spinal manipulation displayed 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) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center comprehends the combined importance of providing the nutrients of a good disc supplement and daily multivitamin with Pensacola spinal manipulation to influence diffusion of water and molecular chemicals into the disc. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center is well experienced with spinal manipulation to do this!

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