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

Chiropractic and back pain relief and leg pain fit well together. Carrolltown chiropractic patients get this! Adding chondroitin sulfate to that combination boosts that relief for Carrolltown back pain and leg pain sufferers.  Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation may suggest chondroitin supplementation to Carrolltown back pain patients’ chiropractic treatment plan for back pain relief and even neuropathic pain relief.


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


Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation is constantly studying new research to aid Carrolltown chiropractic patients! And it never fail to provide. One of the latest studies discusses that repeated oral administration of chondroitin sulfate effectively reduces neuropathic pain due to sciatic nerve irritation by stopping spinal P38 MSPK phosphorylation and beta fiber activation. (1) What’s that mean for you? Chondroitin sulfate may well decrease neuropathic pain brought on by sciatica and felt as sciatic leg pain which does down to the feet. That’s good news for anyone who has such neuropathic pain! Discoveries in this study even suggest that chondroitin sulfate stops tactile allodynia (pain from stimuli that don’t normally provoke pain like a light touch or even flimsy clothing on the skin). There’s a complex chemical process behind all of this that Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation bets most Carrolltown chiropractic patients don’t really want to get into (though some may and are invited to discuss it more with your Carrolltown chiropractor at the next visit!), but this is exciting information.  It will be considered when developing the proper treatment plan for Carrolltown chiropractic patients’ back and leg pain relief at Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation.
