Chondroprotective…a beautiful word to your
Tarrytown chiropractor who is all about protecting the cartilage of
Tarrytown back pain and spine-related pain sufferers along with Tarrytown knee pain sufferers with
osteoarthritis. When such pain arises, a decrease
in beneficial nutrients often accompanies it. Luckily,
chiropractic care options at Tarrytown Chiropractic like spinal manipulation, exercise, and nutrition are
protective and relieving.
Chondro describes cartilage while protective
means, well, protective. When it comes to musculoskeletal pain
like Tarrytownback pain or knee pain, chondroprotective agents are helpful.
In newer studies, the term “chondroprotectors” has been mentioned.
More specifically in one study, glucosamine showed
a chondroprotective action on osteoarthritis by preventing type
II collagen degradation. In athletes, such collagen degradation associated
with cartilage metabolism increased. (1) Tarrytown Chiropractic
suggests exercise whether it’s athletic-level or everyday
walking to enhance body health and cartilage metabolism like this
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-designed research projects.
(2) Chondroprotectors - biological agents that add to the
regeneration of the cartilage surface and joint capsule and participate
in articular cartilage metabolism – work when there is a decrease
in chondroitin sulfate and ongoing loss of hyaline
cartilage as seen in osteoarthritis and low
back pain. The aim of treatment of
osteoarthritis is to reduce its progression, relieve
its pain, and increase any diminished function. (3) Tarrytown Chiropractic knows
well the chondroprotective nature of proper nutrition!

chiropractic treatment approach while a reworking of its
distractive principles has been created for the knee for relief
of osteoarthritis knee pain. Research
support for distraction of the knee grows as to its success to reduce pain and improve
joint space width. One paper reported that it lasted up
to 9 years. (4) Tarrytown Chiropractic is all for these chondroprotective
approaches to knee as well as Tarrytown back
