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

September 18, 2018

Chiropractic and back pain relief and leg pain fit well together. Richmond chiropractic patients understand 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 part 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!


Johnson Chiropractic is constantly on the look for new research to help Richmond chiropractic patients! And it never fail to provide. 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 does that mean 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! Discoveries in this study even suggest that chondroitin sulfate halts tactile allodynia (pain from things that do not normally cause pain like a soft touch or even flimsy clothing on the skin). There’s a complicated chemical process behind all of this that Johnson Chiropractic knows most Richmond chiropractic patients don’t really want to get into (though some may and are invited to discuss it further with your Richmond chiropractor at the next visit!), but this is exciting information.  It will be used in developing the proper treatment plan for Richmond chiropractic patients’ back and leg pain relief at Johnson Chiropractic.


Johnson Chiropractic finds that the combination of nutrition like orally taken chondroitin sulfate and Cox Technic spinal manipulation allows Richmond back pain sufferers to get relief from back pain and sciatica. Cox® Technic’s gentle, safe distraction decompression treatment reduces intradiscal pressures and opens the spinal canal area to relieve back and leg pain, just what Richmond back pain and leg pain patients come to Johnson Chiropractic for.
