INFLAMMATION’S ROLE IN BACK AND NECK PAIN
It is all (well, a lot) about inflammation! In Carrolltown
back pain patients - acute or chronic back pain sufferers - there is an imbalance
of pro-inflammatory (TNFA, IL-1B, IL-6, IL-2 and IFN) and anti-inflammatory (IL-1
TA, STNFR2, IL-10) components. The pro-inflammatory mediators prevail.
They will be more present 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 specifically,
the level of lumbar radicular (leg) pain disc herniation patients experience is
newly linked to the level of inflammatory
marker microRNA-17 seen in their disc’s nucleus pulposus. MicroRNAs
modulate neuroinflammatory processes like the one set
off when a disc herniates. (2) Inflammation is a piece of the
disc herniation occurrence. The body’s inflammatory response to spine pain is real. Your Carrolltown chiropractor
knows this and helps diminish the inflammatory
as well as mechanical factors influencing your Carrolltown
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.
Carrolltown CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:
Devil’s Claw for Inflammation
Devil’s Claw helps reduce 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 reducing
inflammation. (3) Osteoarthritis responds well to it. In new research, Devil’s Claw
reportedly inhibited 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 reduced
inflammation. (4) Your chiropractor is well aware that getting
rid of inflammation is not a one-pronged approach. Adding
Devil’s Claw to
the Carrolltown chiropractic treatment plan may improve
the inflammation reduction you want to get you to the
pain reduction you desire.
