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

Chiropractic and back pain relief and leg pain fit well together. McHenry chiropractic patients get this! Including chondroitin sulfate to that combination boosts that relief for McHenry back pain and leg pain sufferers.  OrthoIllinois Chiropractic may suggest chondroitin supplementation to McHenry 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 made of cartilage. When there is disc degeneration, the disc loses its chondroitin sulfate content. Not a good thing!


OrthoIllinois Chiropractic is always looking for new research to aid McHenry chiropractic patients! And it never fail to provide. One of the most recent studies presents that repeated oral administration of chondroitin sulfate effectively decreases 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 reduce neuropathic pain brought on by sciatica and felt as sciatic leg pain which extends to the feet. That is exciting news for anyone who has such neuropathic pain! Discoveries in this study even propose that chondroitin sulfate stops tactile allodynia (pain from things that don’t usually provoke pain like a soft touch or even the weight of clothing on the skin). There is a complicated chemical process behind all of this that OrthoIllinois Chiropractic bets most McHenry chiropractic patients don’t really want to get into (though some may and are welcome to discuss it further with your McHenry chiropractor at the next visit!), but this is wonderful information.  It will be considered when developing the proper treatment plan for McHenry chiropractic patients’ back and leg pain relief at OrthoIllinois Chiropractic.
