Chondroprotective…a beautiful word to your
Auburn chiropractor who is all about protecting the cartilage of
Auburn back pain and spine-related pain sufferers in addition to Auburn knee pain sufferers with
osteoarthritis. When such pain arises, a decrease
in beneficial nutrients often accompanies it. Luckily,
chiropractic care options at Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. like spinal manipulation, exercise, and nutrition are
protective and relieving.
Chondro refers to cartilage while protective
means, well, protective. When it comes to musculoskeletal pain
like Auburnback pain or knee pain, chondroprotective agents are valuable.
In recent studies, the term “chondroprotectors” has been cited.
More specifically in one study, glucosamine demonstrated
a chondroprotective action on osteoarthritis by preventing type
II collagen degradation. In athletes, such collagen degradation related to cartilage metabolism rose. (1) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C.

Nutrition may improve osteoarthritis symptoms,
as well. Nutrients like glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate have been
researched and recorded to slow the progression
of osteoarthritis of the knee in many well-designed studies.
(2) Chondroprotectors - biological agents that enhance the
regeneration of the cartilage surface and joint capsule and participate
in articular cartilage metabolism – work when there is a reduction
in chondroitin sulfate and progressive loss of hyaline
cartilage as observed in osteoarthritis and low
back pain. The goal of osteoarthritis treatment is to slow its progression, relieve
its pain, and increase any reduced function. (3) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. knows
well the chondroprotective nature of proper nutrition!
