La Grande Neuropathic Pain May Find Help with Chondroitin Sulfate and Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic and back pain relief and leg pain go together. La Grande chiropractic patients understand this! Adding chondroitin sulfate to that mix boosts that relief for La Grande back pain and leg pain sufferers.  Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC may suggest chondroitin supplementation to La Grande 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!


Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC is constantly studying new research to aid La Grande chiropractic patients! And it comes every day. One of the newest studies shares that repeated oral administration of chondroitin sulfate effectively decreases neuropathic pain due to sciatic nerve irritation by stopping spinal P38 MSPK phosphorylation and beta fiber activation. (1) What does that imply in every day terms? Chondroitin sulfate may well decrease neuropathic pain caused by sciatica and felt as sciatic leg pain which does down to the feet. That is exciting news for anyone experiencing such neuropathic pain! Findings in this study even propose that chondroitin sulfate halts tactile allodynia (pain from stimuli that do not usually provoke pain like a light touch or even flimsy clothing on the skin). There is a complex chemical process behind all of this that Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC knows most La Grande chiropractic patients don’t really want to get into (though some may and are welcome to discuss it more with your La Grande chiropractor at an up-coming visit!), but this is exciting information.  It will be considered when developing the proper treatment plan for La Grande chiropractic patients’ back and leg pain relief at Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC.


Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC observes that the combination of nutrition like orally taken chondroitin sulfate and Cox Technic spinal manipulation allows La Grande 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 La Grande back pain and leg pain patients want.
