Can you tell me is glucosamine & chondroitin beneficial for lumbar disc disease?

In brief: The studies are hit

Or miss with glucosamine for joints overall, and discs are a difficult area to get nutrients to, so they may not be able to get much from glucosamine.
That being said, some people really do have good results. It is a benign treatment that may actually help a great deal if you are one of the lucky few!
