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

Chiropractic and back pain relief and leg pain fit well together. Ashburn chiropractic patients get this! Including chondroitin sulfate to that combination improves that relief for Ashburn back pain and leg pain sufferers.  Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn may recommend chondroitin supplementation to Ashburn back pain patients’ chiropractic treatment plan for back pain relief and even neuropathic pain relief.


Chondroitin sulfate is a vital 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!


Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn is continually studying new research to help Ashburn chiropractic patients! And it never fail to provide. One of the newest studies discusses 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 does that mean for you? Chondroitin sulfate may well decrease neuropathic pain caused by sciatica and felt as sciatic leg pain which extends to the feet. That is exciting news for anyone experiencing such neuropathic pain! Findings in this study even suggest that chondroitin sulfate halts tactile allodynia (pain from stimuli that do not normally cause pain like a light touch or even flimsy clothing on the skin). There is a complicated chemical process behind all of this that Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn knows most Ashburn chiropractic patients do not really want to get into (though some may and are invited to discuss it further with your Ashburn chiropractor at the next visit!), but this is wonderful information.  It will be considered when developing the proper treatment plan for Ashburn chiropractic patients’ back and leg pain relief at Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn.
