The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider Cares for Spinal Discs with Nutrition and Knowledge

What do you know about the nutrition of the discs in your spine? Your Ottawa chiropractor is well acquainted with them! Not a day goes by that your Ottawa chiropractor isn’t working with spinal discs. The discs in the spine have a high metabolism that requires oxygen, glucose, chondroitin sulfate and minerals for its ability to evade degenerative change. Let us study how Ottawa chiropractic guided nutrition can alleviate and develop the health of the human disc. Its nutritional balance is delicate and quite responsive to nutrition and Ottawa chiropractic treatment.

THE ROLE OF DISC DEGENERATION

The reduction of chondroitin sulfate  inside the intervertebral disc during Ottawa degenerative disc disease results in a decrease in tissue hydration, a loss of fluid movement, cell death (also called apoptosis), a loss of nerve growth inhibition and finally, the loss of disc function. Aging experiences a significant drop in chondroitin sulfate (known as glycosaminoglycan) in the disc structure. This degeneration takes place throughout the whole disc. These changes give an appreciation of the possible influence of chondroitin sulfate on the disc biology and the development of therapeutic methods for disc regeneration and repair. (1) The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider notes this to help Ottawa chiropractic disc degeneration patients.

ANTI-INFLAMMATORY

Not only is chondroitin sulfate vital for the health of your Ottawa disc and its ability to resist degeneration, but chondroitin sulfate is a slow-acting anti-inflammatory drug for doctoring osteoarthritis and low back pain. Ottawa 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 harm organs such as the liver, heart and kidneys. (2) A source of chondroitin sulfate is from human umbilical cord which is revealed to bring back 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 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) The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider offers a high-quality disc nutritional supplement that explicitly has chondroitin sulfate and a daily multivitamin, amino acid, enzyme, and herb formula containing the B vitamins to lower inflammation. Ottawa chiropractic patients find this an advantageous addition to their Ottawa chiropractic care.

SPINAL MANIPULATION PLUS NUTRITION

The value of Ottawa chiropractic nutrition is further revealed when coupled with Ottawa chiropractic spinal manipulation. The physiological effects of spinal manipulation showed that it influenced disc physiology mainly through water flow via water diffusion and molecular transport into the disc, which are important for the health of the disc. (5) The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider understands the joint importance of supplying the nutrients of a good disc supplement and daily multivitamin with Ottawa spinal manipulation to influence diffusion of water and molecular chemicals into the disc. The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider is well skilled with spinal manipulation to do this!

This study highlights the role of Cox Technic protocols in the treatment and prevention of Ottawa disc degeneration and its resultant disc herniation in good perspective. The effects of Ottawa chiropractic on intervertebral disk matrix and metabolic enzymes in rats with cervical disc degeneration and arthritis showed that chiropractic may improve the degeneration in rats with cervical disc degeneration and arthritis by regulating the intervertebral disc matrix system and related metabolic enzymes.
