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!


Spine & Sports Rehab Center is always looking for new research to aid Baton Rouge chiropractic patients! And it never fail to provide. One of the newest studies presents that repeated oral administration of chondroitin sulfate effectively decreases neuropathic pain due to sciatic nerve irritation by halting spinal P38 MSPK phosphorylation and beta fiber activation. (1) What does that mean in every day terms? Chondroitin sulfate may well decrease neuropathic pain caused by sciatica and felt as sciatic leg pain which extends to the feet. That’s exciting news for anyone who has such neuropathic pain! Findings in this study even propose that chondroitin sulfate stops tactile allodynia (pain from things that don’t 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 Spine & Sports Rehab Center bets most Baton Rouge chiropractic patients do not really want to get into (though some may and are invited to discuss it further with your Baton Rouge chiropractor at the next visit!), but this is exciting information.  It will be considered when developing the proper treatment plan for Baton Rouge chiropractic patients’ back and leg pain relief at Spine & Sports Rehab Center.
