Murfreesboro Nutrition Approaches for Degenerated Discs: Broccoli, Aloe and Grapeseed Oil

Who knew? Researchers are an interesting group of people. How they think up things to experiment with is a fascination! What would prompt them to think “broccoli, aloe vera and grapeseed may help disc degeneration” is a marvel to Most Chiropractic Clinic and surely to our Murfreesboro chiropractic patients, but a good marvel! They just might be onto something to help discs that are degenerated which cause back pain, neck pain, and disruption of life.

PREVENTING AND POSSIBLY REVERSING DISC DEGENERATION

Murfreesboro low back pain is quite closely associated with degeneration of the intervertebral disc in the spine.  At its basic level, the Murfreesboro degenerated disc is defined by a reduced number of cells and alteration to its tissue and extracellular matrix content. In several of these studies, rabbit discs are examined as they are like human discs. In one rabbit study, researchers studied the degenerated intervertebral disc and its response to the use of broccoli sprout extract. They thought and their study found that it had preventive and restorative effects on degenerated discs. (1) In another rabbit study, grapeseed extracts were applied to degenerated discs. Due to their having anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties as natural flavonoids, grapeseed extracts were evaluated to see how their inhibitory and anabolic effects would be on degenerated discs. They showed to be preventive and restorative in terms of affecting the degraded disc tissues’ collagen fibrils. (2) In a third study, aloe vera gel was applied to degenerated discs of rabbits. Aloe vera gel stopped and reversed disc degeneration. Researchers stated that there was a statistically significant (a big deal!) gradual reversal of degenerative changes. These changes were seen in the collagen content organization, the nucleus pulposus and annulus fibrosus cell rise, and degree of disc degeneration. (3) Most Chiropractic Clinic will follow these stimulating studies and see how they will apply to human use. Maybe these results will inspire Murfreesboro chiropractic patients to enjoy more broccoli, use grapeseed, and find a way to use some aloe vera gel?
