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

Chiropractic and back pain relief and leg pain fit well together. Largo chiropractic patients know this! Adding chondroitin sulfate to that combination enhances that relief for Largo back pain and leg pain sufferers.  Hollstrom & Associates Inc may recommend chondroitin supplementation to Largo 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 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!


Hollstrom & Associates Inc is continually on the look for new research to help Largo chiropractic patients! And it comes every day. One of the latest studies discusses 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’s that mean in every day terms? Chondroitin sulfate may well decrease neuropathic pain caused by sciatica and experienced as sciatic leg pain which does down to the feet. That is good news for anyone experiencing such neuropathic pain! Findings in this study even propose that chondroitin sulfate stops tactile allodynia (pain from stimuli that don’t normally provoke pain like a soft touch or even flimsy clothing on the skin). There’s a complicated chemical process behind all of this that Hollstrom & Associates Inc bets most Largo chiropractic patients do not really want to get into (though some may and are invited to discuss it further with your Largo chiropractor at an up-coming visit!), but this is exciting information.  It will be considered when developing the proper treatment plan for Largo chiropractic patients’ back and leg pain relief at Hollstrom & Associates Inc.


Hollstrom & Associates Inc observes that the combination of nutrition like orally taken chondroitin sulfate and Cox Technic spinal manipulation allows Largo back pain sufferers to get relief from back pain and sciatica. Cox® Technic’s gentle, safe distraction decompression treatment drops intradiscal pressures and widens the spinal canal area to ease back and leg pain, just what Largo back pain and leg pain patients come to Hollstrom & Associates Inc for.
