Amelia Chiropractic Clinic Cares for Spinal Discs with Nutrition and Knowledge

What do you know about the nutrition of the discs in your spine? Your Fernandina Beach chiropractor knows a lot about them! Not less than daily is it that your Fernandina Beach chiropractor is not caring for spinal discs. The discs in the spine have a high metabolism that needs oxygen, glucose, chondroitin sulfate and minerals for its ability to escape degenerative change. Let us look at how Fernandina Beach chiropractic guided nutrition can alleviate and improve the health of the human disc. Its nutritional balance is delicate and quite responsive to nutrition and Fernandina Beach chiropractic treatment.


The depletion of chondroitin sulfate  inside the intervertebral disc during Fernandina Beach degenerative disc disease creates a decrease in tissue hydration, a loss of fluid movement, cell death (aka 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 happens throughout the entire disc. These changes contribute to an appreciation of the possible influence of chondroitin sulfate on the disc biology and the expansion of therapeutic methods for disc regeneration and repair.

Not only is chondroitin sulfate vital for the health of your Fernandina Beach disc and its capability to resist degeneration, but chondroitin sulfate is a slow-acting anti-inflammatory drug for treating osteoarthritis and low back pain. Fernandina Beach 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 injure 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 put in this umbilical fluid called Wharton’s Jelly. Captivatingly this disc cell restorative fluid has chondroitin sulfate which is the chemical creating 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) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic offers a high-quality disc nutritional supplement that specifically has chondroitin sulfate and a daily multivitamin, amino acid, enzyme, and herb formula containing the B vitamins to reduce inflammation. Fernandina Beach chiropractic patients describe this as a beneficial addition to their Fernandina Beach chiropractic care.


The value of Fernandina Beach chiropractic nutrition is additionally revealed when combined with Fernandina Beach chiropractic spinal manipulation. The physiological effects of spinal manipulation displayed 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) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic comprehends the combined importance of supplying the nutrients of a good disc supplement and daily multivitamin with Fernandina Beach spinal manipulation to affect diffusion of water and molecular chemicals into the disc. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic is well skilled with spinal manipulation to do this!

This study highlights the role of Cox Technic protocols in the treatment and prevention of Fernandina Beach disc degeneration and its subsequent disc herniation in good perspective. The effects of Fernandina Beach chiropractic on intervertebral disk matrix and metabolic enzymes in rats with cervical disc degeneration and arthritis showed that chiropractic may enhance the degeneration in rats with cervical disc degeneration and arthritis by controlling the intervertebral disc matrix system and relevant metabolic enzymes.
