Tarrytown Osteoarthritis Benefits from Chiropractic Care

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 article describes.


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!


At Tarrytown Chiropractic, chiropractic care incorporates a variety of approaches to reduce pain and protect the body’s joints and cartilage. Spinal manipulation is the expected 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 pain!
