What do you know about the nutrition of the discs in your spine? Your Easley chiropractor knows a lot about them! Not less than daily is it that your Easley chiropractor isn’t treating spinal discs. The discs in the spine have a high metabolism that demands oxygen, glucose, chondroitin sulfate and minerals for its ability to escape degenerative change. Let’s study how Easley chiropractic guided nutrition can stabilize and develop the health of the human disc. Its nutritional balance is delicate and quite responsive to nutrition and Easley chiropractic treatment.
HOW DISC DEGENERATION PLAYS A ROLE
The reduction of chondroitin sulfate inside the intervertebral disc during Easley degenerative disc disease creates a reduction in tissue hydration, a loss of fluid movement, cell death (also called apoptosis), a loss of nerve growth inhibition and ultimately, the loss of disc function. Aging sees a significant drop in chondroitin sulfate (known as glycosaminoglycan) in the disc structure. This degeneration takes place throughout the entire disc. These changes offer an appreciation of the potential influence of chondroitin sulfate on the disc biology and the growth of therapeutic approaches for disc regeneration and repair.

Not only is chondroitin sulfate important for the health of your Easley disc and its capability to fight degeneration, but chondroitin sulfate is a slow-acting anti-inflammatory drug for taking care of osteoarthritis and low back pain. Easley inflammation plays a role in disc health status. Chondroitin sulfate does not have the adverse side effects of non–steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs that can harm organs such as the liver, heart and kidneys. (2) A source of chondroitin sulfate is from human umbilical cord which is shown to restore the degenerative disc cells when disc cells are placed in this umbilical fluid called Wharton’s Jelly. Interestingly 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. (4) Young Chiropractic makes available a high-quality disc nutritional supplement that specifically contains chondroitin sulfate and a daily multivitamin, amino acid, enzyme, and herb formula containing the B vitamins to reduce inflammation. Easley chiropractic patients describe this as valuable adjunct to their Easley chiropractic care.
SPINAL MANIPULATION PLUS NUTRITION
The benefit of Easley chiropractic nutrition is further revealed when joined with Easley chiropractic spinal manipulation. The physiological effects of spinal manipulation displayed that it affected disc physiology mostly via water flow via water diffusion and molecular transport into the disc, which are important for the health of the disc. (5) Young Chiropractic understands the combined importance of supplying the nutrients of a good disc supplement and daily multivitamin with Easley spinal manipulation to influence dispersement of water and molecular chemicals into the disc. Young Chiropractic is well experienced with spinal manipulation to do this!
This study puts in perspective the role of Cox Technic protocols in the treatment and prevention of Easley disc degeneration and its resultant disc herniation. The effects of Easley chiropractic on intervertebral disk matrix and metabolic enzymes in rats with cervical disc degeneration and arthritis revealed that chiropractic may better the degeneration in rats with cervical disc degeneration and arthritis by controlling the intervertebral disc matrix system and related metabolic enzymes.
