Chiropractic and back pain relief and leg pain go together. Baton Rouge chiropractic patients know this! Adding chondroitin sulfate to that mix improves that relief for Baton Rouge back pain and leg pain sufferers.  Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation may suggest chondroitin supplementation to Baton Rouge 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 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!


Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation is constantly looking for new research to help Baton Rouge chiropractic patients! And it comes daily. One of the latest studies discusses 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’s that imply for you? Chondroitin sulfate may well reduce neuropathic pain caused by sciatica and experienced as sciatic leg pain which does down to the feet. That’s exciting news for anyone experiencing such neuropathic pain! Discoveries in this study even propose that chondroitin sulfate stops tactile allodynia (pain from things that don’t normally cause pain like a soft touch or even the weight of clothing on the skin). There’s a complex chemical process behind all of this that Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation bets most Baton Rouge chiropractic patients don’t really want to get into (though some may and are invited to discuss it more with your Baton Rouge chiropractor at the next visit!), but this is exciting information.  It will be used in developing the proper treatment plan for Baton Rouge chiropractic patients’ back and leg pain relief at Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation.
