Standard Process: Musculoskeletal System Support



Musculoskeletal System Support

Canine Musculoskeletal Support is designed to provide support for the patient with inflammatory joint conditions like osteoarthritis. In addition, support is provided for the periarticular tissues like the ligaments, tendons, muscles, and other connective tissues. This multidimensional support is complemented by support for the liver and kidneys that provides indirect benefits for joint support. Nutritional factors found in a variety of whole foods, tissue extracts and concentrate, and botanical ingredients provide a broad range of important cellular substrates. Canine Musculoskeletal Support offers the advantage of being able to support the patient with joint disease by itself or in combination with other nutritional products or pharmaceuticals. When pharmaceuticals are utilized to appropriately maintain the patient, use of Canine Musculoskeletal Support can generally result in reduced dosage of the drug. This effect can benefit the patient by reducing potential side effects of the drug. Other situations that benefit from the use of CMS include patients recovering from orthopedic surgery. Ideally, these patients should receive CMS for at least one week prior to surgery and 4-6 weeks after surgery. Canine Musculoskeletal Support is very safe and effective to use in cats.

The musculoskeletal system has many different components: bones, joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves, blood vessels, and organs that support these tissues. The liver, kidneys, and adrenal glands all play a part in a healthy musculoskeletal system. The whole food ingredients in Canine Musculoskeletal Support provide a wide range of essential nutrients for these tissues, helping them maintain optimal health and function. This product is designed to provide support for the patient with inflammatory joint conditions like osteoarthritis. The multilevel support in this product facilitates improved function of tissues associated with the joints including bone, cartilage, ligaments, tendons, and muscle.
