INFLAMMATION’S ROLE IN BACK AND NECK PAIN
It’s all (well, a lot) about inflammation! In Nashua back pain patients - acute or chronic back pain sufferers - there is an inequality of pro-inflammatory (TNFA, IL-1B, IL-6, IL-2 and IFN) and anti-inflammatory (IL-1 TA, STNFR2, IL-10) factors. The pro-inflammatory mediators prevail. They will be greater in back pain patients than the anti-inflammatory ones. And patients like you notice this discrepancy! They will have higher visual analog scale scores for pain. (1) Even more distinctively, the level of lumbar radicular (leg) pain disc herniation patients experience is newly linked to the level of inflammatory marker microRNA-17 found in their disc’s nucleus pulposus. MicroRNAs control neuroinflammatory processes like the one set off when a disc herniates. (2) Inflammation is a part of the disc herniation event. The body’s inflammatory response to spine pain is real. Your Nashua chiropractor knows this and helps reduce the inflammatory as well as mechanical factors affecting your Nashua back pain, neck pain, leg pain and arm pain experience.
Listen to this discussion on care of the herniated disc with Cox® Technic on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson as Dr. Jonathon Cerutti shares the success of pain reduction for his patient.
Nashua CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:
Devil’s Claw for Inflammation
Devil’s Claw helps decrease inflammation! Traditional medicine has used it for many years for a variety of ailments. The harpagoside compound of Devil’s Claw is noted for its therapeutic activity, particularly its role in decreasing inflammation. (3) Osteoarthritis responds well to it. In new research, Devil’s Claw reportedly deterred nitric oxide, inflammatory cytokines (IL-6, IL-1β, and TNF-α), and PGE2 and prevented arachidonic acid metabolism and eicosanoid biosynthesis, leading to COX-2 inhibition and decreased inflammation. (4) Your chiropractor understands that getting rid of inflammation is not a one-pronged approach. The addition of Devil’s Claw to the Nashua chiropractic treatment plan may enhance the inflammation reduction you want to help you attain the pain reduction you desire.
