Moriarty Chiropractic 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 Nashua chiropractor is well acquainted with them! Not less than daily is it that your Nashua chiropractor isn’t treating spinal discs. The discs in the spine have a high metabolism that demands oxygen, glucose, chondroitin sulfate and minerals in order for it to avoid degenerative change. Let us look at how Nashua chiropractic guided nutrition can alleviate and develop the health of the human disc. Its nutritional balance is delicate and quite responsive to nutrition and Nashua chiropractic treatment.


The depletion of chondroitin sulfate  within the intervertebral disc during Nashua degenerative disc disease results in 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 give an appreciation of the possible influence of chondroitin sulfate on the disc biology and the expansion of therapeutic methods for disc regeneration and repair. (1) Moriarty Chiropractic notes this to help Nashua chiropractic disc degeneration patients.


Not only is chondroitin sulfate vital for the health of your Nashua disc and its capability to resist degeneration, but chondroitin sulfate is a slow-acting anti-inflammatory drug for doctoring osteoarthritis and low back pain. Nashua 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 damage 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 put in this umbilical fluid known as Wharton’s Jelly. Captivatingly this disc cell restorative fluid comprises chondroitin sulfate which is the chemical making up 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) Moriarty Chiropractic 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. Nashua chiropractic patients find this valuable addition to their Nashua chiropractic care.


The value of Nashua chiropractic nutrition is further shown when combined with Nashua chiropractic spinal manipulation. The physiological effects of spinal manipulation showed that it affected disc physiology mostly through water flow via water diffusion and molecular transport into the disc, which are important for the health of the disc. (5) Moriarty Chiropractic comprehends the combined importance of supplying the nutrients of a good disc supplement and daily multivitamin with Nashua spinal manipulation to affect dispersement of water and molecular chemicals into the disc. Moriarty Chiropractic is well skilled with spinal manipulation to do this!

This study puts in perspective the role of Cox Technic procedures in the treatment and prevention of Nashua disc degeneration and its resultant disc herniation. The effects of Nashua 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 related metabolic enzymes.
