Carrolltown Leg Pain and Memory Benefit from Curcumin

Back pain and Memory. Back pain and cognition. Is there a relationship? Ask any Carrolltown back pain sufferer who has had the pain for a while, and you will hear just how the mind and memory just do not seem to work like normal when pain is on the mind. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation gets it. Back pain specialists like yours at Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation understand this connection. Pain alters the brain and its memory function. Chiropractic care works to reduce the pain, and Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation may suggest some curcumin to foster the pain relief…and memory and cognition improvement.

CURCUMIN FOR MEMORY ISSUES

Chronic pain sufferers know that their pain influences their quality of life. It slows them down. It holds them back. They also experience stress because of their chronic pain and non-pain-related issues which worsens their symptoms. It’s a vicious cycle. These pain and stress feelings alongside emotions, learning, and memory are processed by the hippocampus. Neuropathic pain impacts the nervous system, and hippocampal neurogenesis, its growth and development of nervous tissue, is exacerbated by stress. (1) To push back against this negative effect on the nervous system, researchers are looking to nutrients like curcumin. Curcumin decreased chronic pain and improved cognitive impairment and memory deficit linked to long-term sciatic nerve constriction. Researchers describe how hippocampal neurogenesis and synaptic plasticity improvements may be thanked, so we’ll just thank them (and be grateful that researchers know the process!) instead of working to fully understand them ourselves. (2) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation cares for many Carrolltown leg pain patients and their pain relief from a compressed and irritated sciatic nerve. Curcumin may help both memory and sciatica!

CURCUMIN FOR SCIATICA

There is compelling evidence that curcumin plays an important role in the treatment of pathological pain due to sciatic nerve injury, neuropathy and the like. (3) Current drugs for acute pain (opioids, NSAIDs, acetaminophen and such) help but also have side-effects (renal, liver, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal) and hold a potential for abuse. This stimulated a few researchers to study curcumin more. Curcumin is reported to have anti-inflammatory and analgesic pain-reducing effects…without the side-effects. (4) Other researchers discovered that nanocurcumin (a soluble form of curcumin) ended pain-related behavior, reduced inflammatory markers and improved memory deficient and spatial learning in chronically constricted rats. (5) Curcumin may be applicable for your Carrolltown back pain condition, too. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation will explore this with you at your next Carrolltown chiropractic visit.
