Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. Cares for Spinal Discs with Nutrition and Knowledge

What do you know about the nutrition of the discs in your spine? Your Auburn chiropractor is well acquainted with them! Not less than daily is it that your Auburn chiropractor is not 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 us consider how Auburn chiropractic guided nutrition can ease and develop the health of the human disc. Its nutritional balance is delicate and quite receptive to nutrition and Auburn chiropractic treatment.

THE ROLE OF DISC DEGENERATION

The reduction of chondroitin sulfate  within the intervertebral disc during Auburn 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 finally, the loss of disc function. Aging sees a significant drop in chondroitin sulfate (called glycosaminoglycan) in the disc structure. This degeneration happens throughout the entire disc. These changes contribute to an appreciation of the potential influence of chondroitin sulfate on the disc biology and the growth of therapeutic approaches for disc regeneration and repair.

ANTI-INFLAMMATORY

Not only is chondroitin sulfate important for the health of your Auburn disc and its capability to fight degeneration, but chondroitin sulfate is a slow-acting anti-inflammatory drug for treating osteoarthritis and low back pain. Auburn inflammation plays a role in disc health status. Chondroitin sulfate doesn’t have the adverse 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 contains chondroitin sulfate which is the chemical forming 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.

Auburn chiropractic patients describe this as an advantageous addition to their Auburn chiropractic care.
