More Scientific Studies Focus on the Effects of Glucosamine on Lumbar Pain


Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/28/2014 -- Americans spend millions of dollars every year for natural health products. Glucosamine supplements are widely known as one of the best herbal products to use for arthritis. However, recent research indicates that glucosamine is not only useful for arthritis sufferers, but may also have positive benefits for those who suffer from lumbar pain.

More scientific studies are focusing on the effects of glucosamine on lumbar pain. In a study published by The Spine Journal, it was found that glucosamine has therapeutic properties that can significantly improve lower back pain that is associated with degenerative disease.

The Nature Reviews: Rheumatology also featured a study that found subjects who were under glucosamine treatment had experienced reduced back pain and inflammation caused by spine-associated degenerative disk disease.

“Glucosamine has been a great pain relief option for arthritis sufferers for quite some time. It is not surprising that quite a number of studies are now concentrating on how it can benefit individuals who are suffering from lumbar pain,” said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O’Sullivan.

The number of individuals who suffer from lower back pain is continually increasing. As a matter of fact, this condition is considered as the most commonly expressed concern of patients in primary care.

Glucosamine is believed to be an effective way to manage osteoarthritis. Since degenerative lumbar osteoarthritis is associated with inflammation and cartilage destruction, many experts believe that the natural alternative may also be effective for lumbar pain.

Several studies suggest that glucosamine supplements can be a better long term alternative to pain killers or NSAIDs, which can be dangerous with prolonged use. Consumers seem to agree, as the number of people buying such supplements has been increasing steadily with each year
