Vancouver Disc Centers Cares for Spinal Discs with Nutrition and Knowledge

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

THE ROLE OF DISC DEGENERATION

The depletion of chondroitin sulfate  inside the intervertebral disc during Vancouver degenerative disc disease results in a reduction in tissue hydration, a loss of fluid movement, cell death (aka apoptosis), a loss of nerve growth inhibition and ultimately, the loss of disc function. Aging sees a significant decrease in chondroitin sulfate (called glycosaminoglycan) in the disc structure. This degeneration takes place throughout the whole disc. These changes offer an appreciation of the possible influence of chondroitin sulfate on the disc biology and the expansion of therapeutic approaches for disc regeneration and repair. (1) Vancouver Disc Centers notes this to help Vancouver chiropractic disc degeneration patients.

ANTI-INFLAMMATORY

Not only is chondroitin sulfate important for the health of your Vancouver disc and its capability to resist degeneration, but chondroitin sulfate is a slow-acting anti-inflammatory drug for doctoring osteoarthritis and low back pain. Vancouver 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 bring back the degenerative disc cells when disc cells are put in this umbilical fluid known as Wharton’s Jelly. Captivatingly this disc cell restorative fluid contains 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) Vancouver Disc Centers makes available a high-quality disc nutritional supplement that specifically has chondroitin sulfate and a daily multivitamin, amino acid, enzyme, and herb formula incorporating the B vitamins to lower inflammation. Vancouver chiropractic patients find this a beneficial adjunct to their Vancouver chiropractic care.

SPINAL MANIPULATION PLUS NUTRITION

The benefit of Vancouver chiropractic nutrition is further revealed when coupled with Vancouver 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) Vancouver Disc Centers understands the combined importance of supplying the nutrients of a good disc supplement and daily multivitamin with Vancouver spinal manipulation to influence dispersement of water and molecular chemicals into the disc. Vancouver Disc Centers is well skilled with spinal manipulation to do this!

This study puts in perspective the role of Cox Technic procedures in the treatment and prevention of Vancouver disc degeneration and its resultant disc herniation. The effects of Vancouver 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 controlling the intervertebral disc matrix system and related metabolic enzymes.
