Dr. Butwell Cares for Spinal Discs with Nutrition and Knowledge

February 06, 2018

What do you know about the nutrition of the discs in your spine? Your Georgetown chiropractor is well acquainted with them! Not a day goes by that your Georgetown 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’s consider how Georgetown chiropractic guided nutrition can ease and develop the health of the human disc. Its nutritional balance is sensitive and quite receptive to nutrition and Georgetown chiropractic treatment.

THE ROLE OF DISC DEGENERATION

The reduction of chondroitin sulfate  within the intervertebral disc during Georgetown degenerative disc disease creates 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 sees a significant drop in chondroitin sulfate (known as glycosaminoglycan) in the disc structure. This degeneration takes place throughout the entire disc. These changes contribute to an appreciation of the possible impact of chondroitin sulfate on the disc biology and the development of therapeutic approaches for disc regeneration and repair. (1) Dr. Butwell notes this to help Georgetown chiropractic disc degeneration patients.

ANTI-INFLAMMATORY

Not only is chondroitin sulfate important for the health of your Georgetown disc and its capability to fight degeneration, but chondroitin sulfate is a slow-acting anti-inflammatory drug for doctoring osteoarthritis and low back pain. Georgetown 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 revealed to restore 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) Dr. Butwell makes available a high-quality disc nutritional supplement that explicitly has chondroitin sulfate and a daily multivitamin, amino acid, enzyme, and herb formula incorporating the B vitamins to reduce inflammation. Georgetown chiropractic patients find this an advantageous adjunct to their Georgetown chiropractic care.

SPINAL MANIPULATION PLUS NUTRITION

The benefit of Georgetown chiropractic nutrition is further shown when joined with Georgetown chiropractic spinal manipulation. The physiological effects of spinal manipulation displayed that it guided disc physiology primarily through water flow via water diffusion and molecular transport into the disc, which are important for the health of the disc. (5) Dr. Butwell understands the combined importance of supplying the nutrients of a good disc supplement and daily multivitamin with Georgetown spinal manipulation to affect dispersement of water and molecular chemicals into the disc. Dr. Butwell is well experienced with spinal manipulation to do this!

This study highlights the role of Cox Technic procedures in the treatment and prevention of Georgetown disc degeneration and its resultant disc herniation in good perspective. The effects of Georgetown 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.
