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

Chiropractic and back pain relief and leg pain go together. Eugene chiropractic patients know this! Adding chondroitin sulfate to that mix enhances that relief for Eugene back pain and leg pain sufferers.  Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic may recommend chondroitin supplementation to Eugene 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!


Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic is constantly on the look for new research to aid Eugene chiropractic patients! And it never fail to provide. One of the newest studies discusses 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’s that mean in every day terms? Chondroitin sulfate may well reduce neuropathic pain caused by sciatica and felt as sciatic leg pain which does down to the feet. That is exciting news for anyone who has such neuropathic pain! Findings in this study even propose that chondroitin sulfate halts tactile allodynia (pain from stimuli that do not usually cause pain like a light touch or even flimsy clothing on the skin). There’s a complex chemical process behind all of this that Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic bets most Eugene chiropractic patients don’t really want to get into (though some may and are welcome to discuss it further with your Eugene chiropractor at an up-coming visit!), but this is exciting news.  It will be used in developing the proper treatment plan for Eugene chiropractic patients’ back and leg pain relief at Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic.
