INFLAMMATION’S ROLE IN BACK AND NECK PAIN
It’s all (well, a lot) about inflammation! Minster
back pain sufferers who have acute or chronic pain have 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 detect 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
recently associated with the level of inflammatory
marker microRNA-17 seen in their disc’s nucleus pulposus. MicroRNAs
control neuroinflammatory processes like the one started when a disc herniates. (2) Inflammation is a piece of the
disc herniation event. The inflammatory
response of the body to spine pain is real. Your Minster chiropractor
knows this and helps reduce the inflammatory
as well as mechanical issues influencing your Minster
back pain, neck pain, leg pain and arm pain experience.
Listen to this discussion about care of the disc herniation 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.
Minster 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 all types of ailments. The
harpagoside compound of Devil’s Claw is noted for its healing
activity, especially its role in decreasing
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 decreased
inflammation. (4) Your chiropractor understands that reducing inflammation is not a one-pronged approach. The addition of Devil’s Claw to
the Minster chiropractic treatment plan may improve
the inflammation reduction you want to get you to the
pain reduction you desire.
