Mandeville Chiropractic Cares for Spinal Discs with Nutrition and Knowledge

What do you know about the nutrition of the discs in your spine? Your Mandeville chiropractor knows a lot about them! Not less than daily is it that your Mandeville chiropractor isn’t working with spinal discs. The discs in the spine have a high metabolism that requires oxygen, glucose, chondroitin sulfate and minerals in order for it to escape degenerative change. Let’s look at how Mandeville chiropractic guided nutrition can stabilize and develop the health of the human disc. Its nutritional balance is sensitive and quite responsive to nutrition and Mandeville chiropractic treatment.


The depletion of chondroitin sulfate  within the intervertebral disc during Mandeville 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 happens throughout the whole disc. These changes contribute to an appreciation of the possible influence of chondroitin sulfate on the disc biology and the expansion of therapeutic approaches for disc regeneration and repair. (1) Mandeville Chiropractic takes note of this to help Mandeville chiropractic disc degeneration patients.


Not only is chondroitin sulfate vital for the health of your Mandeville disc and its capability to resist degeneration, but chondroitin sulfate is a slow-acting anti-inflammatory drug for treating osteoarthritis and low back pain. Mandeville inflammation influences disc health status. Chondroitin sulfate doesn’t 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 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) Mandeville Chiropractic offers 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. Mandeville chiropractic patients describe this as valuable adjunct to their Mandeville chiropractic care.


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

This study highlights the role of Cox Technic procedures in the treatment and prevention of Mandeville disc degeneration and its subsequent disc herniation in good perspective. The effects of Mandeville 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 adjusting the intervertebral disc matrix system and related metabolic enzymes.
