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

Chiropractic and sciatic leg pain relief and back pain relief fit well together. Ottawa chiropractic patients know this! Adding chondroitin sulfate to that combination improves that relief for Ottawa back pain and leg pain sufferers.  The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider may recommend chondroitin supplementation to Ottawa 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 composed of cartilage. When there is disc degeneration, the disc loses its chondroitin sulfate content. Not a good thing!


The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider is constantly on the look for new research to aid Ottawa chiropractic patients! And it never fail to provide. One of the latest studies presents 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 does that mean in every day terms? Chondroitin sulfate may well decrease neuropathic pain brought on by sciatica and felt as sciatic leg pain which does down to the feet. That’s exciting news for anyone who has such neuropathic pain! Discoveries in this study even propose that chondroitin sulfate halts tactile allodynia (pain from stimuli that don’t usually provoke pain like a soft touch or even flimsy clothing on the skin). There’s a complex chemical process behind all of this that The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider bets most Ottawa chiropractic patients don’t really want to get into (though some may and are invited to discuss it further with your Ottawa chiropractor at the next visit!), but this is exciting news.  It will be used in developing the proper treatment plan for Ottawa chiropractic patients’ back and leg pain relief at The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider.
