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

Chiropractic and sciatic leg pain relief and back pain relief fit well together. Sitka chiropractic patients understand this! Adding chondroitin sulfate to that mix enhances that relief for Sitka back pain and leg pain sufferers.  Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka may recommend chondroitin supplementation to Sitka 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!


Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka is continually studying new research to aid Sitka chiropractic patients! And it comes every day. One of the most recent 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 imply for you? Chondroitin sulfate may well decrease neuropathic pain caused by sciatica and experienced as sciatic leg pain which does down to the feet. That’s good news for anyone experiencing such neuropathic pain! Findings in this study even propose that chondroitin sulfate halts tactile allodynia (pain from stimuli that don’t usually cause pain like a soft touch or even the weight of clothing on the skin). There is a complex chemical process behind all of this that Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka knows most Sitka chiropractic patients do not really want to get into (though some may and are welcome to discuss it further with your Sitka chiropractor at the next visit!), but this is exciting information.  It will be used in developing the proper treatment plan for Sitka chiropractic patients’ back and leg pain relief at Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka.
