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

Chiropractic and sciatic leg pain relief and back pain relief go together. Watertown chiropractic patients get this! Adding chondroitin sulfate to that combination improves that relief for Watertown back pain and leg pain sufferers.  Watertown Wellness Center may suggest chondroitin supplementation to Watertown 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 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!


Watertown Wellness Center is always looking for new research to aid Watertown chiropractic patients! And it comes every day. 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 reduce neuropathic pain brought on by sciatica and felt as sciatic leg pain which extends to the feet. That is exciting news for anyone experiencing such neuropathic pain! Discoveries in this study even propose that chondroitin sulfate stops tactile allodynia (pain from stimuli that don’t usually cause pain like a light touch or even the weight of clothing on the skin). There’s a complex chemical process behind all of this that Watertown Wellness Center knows most Watertown chiropractic patients don’t really want to get into (though some may and are welcome to discuss it further with your Watertown chiropractor at an up-coming visit!), but this is exciting news.  It will be considered when developing the proper treatment plan for Watertown chiropractic patients’ back and leg pain relief at Watertown Wellness Center.
