Vancouver Neuropathic Pain May Find Help with Chondroitin Sulfate and Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic and sciatic leg pain relief and back pain relief go together. Vancouver chiropractic patients get this! Including chondroitin sulfate to that combination improves that relief for Vancouver back pain and leg pain sufferers.  Vancouver Disc Centers may recommend chondroitin supplementation to Vancouver back pain patients’ chiropractic treatment plan for back pain relief and even neuropathic pain relief.


Chondroitin sulfate is a vital part of cartilage that helps it resist compression and reduce inflammation especially in patients with osteoarthritis. The spinal disc is composed of cartilage. When there is disc degeneration, the disc loses its chondroitin sulfate content. Not a good thing!


Vancouver Disc Centers is always studying new research to help Vancouver chiropractic patients! And it comes every day. One of the most recent studies shares that repeated oral administration of chondroitin sulfate effectively reduces neuropathic pain due to sciatic nerve irritation by halting spinal P38 MSPK phosphorylation and beta fiber activation. (1) What’s that imply in every day terms? Chondroitin sulfate may well decrease neuropathic pain brought on by sciatica and felt as sciatic leg pain which extends to the feet. That’s exciting news for anyone who has such neuropathic pain! Discoveries in this study even propose that chondroitin sulfate stops tactile allodynia (pain from things that do not normally provoke pain like a soft touch or even flimsy clothing on the skin). There’s a complex chemical process behind all of this that Vancouver Disc Centers knows most Vancouver chiropractic patients do not really want to get into (though some may and are welcome to discuss it more with your Vancouver chiropractor at an up-coming visit!), but this is exciting information.  It will be considered when developing the proper treatment plan for Vancouver chiropractic patients’ back and leg pain relief at Vancouver Disc Centers.
