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

Chiropractic and back pain relief and leg pain fit well together. Richmond chiropractic patients know this! Adding chondroitin sulfate to that combination enhances that relief for Richmond back pain and leg pain sufferers.  Johnson Chiropractic may recommend chondroitin supplementation to Richmond back pain patients’ chiropractic treatment plan for back pain relief and even neuropathic pain relief.


Chondroitin sulfate is a essential nutrient of cartilage that helps it resist compression and decrease 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!


Johnson Chiropractic is constantly on the look for new research to help Richmond chiropractic patients! And it comes every day. One of the newest studies discusses 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 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 is good news for anyone experiencing such neuropathic pain! Findings in this study even suggest that chondroitin sulfate stops tactile allodynia (pain from stimuli that don’t normally cause pain like a soft touch or even the weight of clothing on the skin). There’s a complicated chemical process behind all of this that Johnson Chiropractic knows most Richmond chiropractic patients do not really want to get into (though some may and are invited to discuss it more with your Richmond chiropractor at an up-coming visit!), but this is exciting news.  It will be used in developing the proper treatment plan for Richmond chiropractic patients’ back and leg pain relief at Johnson Chiropractic.


Johnson Chiropractic observes that the combination of nutrition like orally taken chondroitin sulfate and Cox Technic spinal manipulation helps Richmond back pain sufferers to feel relief from back pain and sciatica. Cox® Technic’s gentle, safe distraction decompression treatment drops intradiscal pressures and opens the spinal canal area to ease back and leg pain, just what Richmond back pain and leg pain patients desire.
