A one-tract mind on back pain relief. Yes!
Do we chiropractors seem to be single-focused on back pain? Many of us are! Chiropractors study back pain, neck pain, spine pain and its diagnosis and treatment to ease pain. Your Easley chiropractor is very focused on helping our patients. A recent paper that addressed how chondroitin sulfate may help our diabetic osteoporotic patients really caught our attention! Nutrition and manipulation (and a little exercise!) go hand in hand for spine pain relief. Here is the newest on chondroitin sulfate, B vitamins, and spine nutritional health, all parts of the overall treatment plan for spine pain relief with the Cox® Technic System.
We have known a lot about chondroitin sulfate’s benefit for disc cartilage for some time. New research is sharing new details about its ability to mend bone microstructure and alleviate diabetic osteoporosis after 8- and 10-weeks of use. Granted, the reports utilized rats, but the transfer of knowledge is stimulating. The anti-oxidative, anti-inflammatory, and bone metabolism-regulating advantages are guiding researchers to find dietary interventions as well. Bone mineral density improvement was also noted. (1) Chondroitin sulfate is a key addition to the chiropractic nutritional treatment of Easley back pain.
Now, B vitamins, long recognized for their advantages for immunity, nervous system, and more, are now written about their help for back pain and musculoskeletal conditions. A combination of thiamine, pyridoxine, and cyanocobalamin has pain-decreasing effects due to their neuropathic and nociceptive effects due to their anti-inflammatory, anti-nociceptive, neuroprotective, and neuromodulatory action. (2) Those are many helpful benefits! Another study presented how treatment with NSAIDs and B vitamins proved effective for enhancing general well-being and heightening the quality of sleep by day 10 of treatment observation of patients suffering with acute lumbar dorsalgia (back pain). (3) Easley chiropractic care of back pain includes nutritional approaches along with gentle spinal manipulation as outlined in the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management.
