Minster Leg Pain and Memory Benefit from Curcumin

Memory and back pain. Cognition and back pain. Is there a relationship? Ask any Minster back pain sufferer who’s had the pain for a while, and you will hear just how the mind and memory just do not seem to function like normal when pain is on the mind. Minster Chiropractic Center understands. Back pain specialists like yours at Minster Chiropractic Center understand this connection. Pain alters the brain and its memory function. Chiropractic care works to reduce the pain, and Minster Chiropractic Center may suggest some curcumin to aid in the pain relief…and memory and cognition recovery.

CURCUMIN FOR MEMORY ISSUES

Chronic pain sufferers know that their pain affects their quality of life. It slows them down. It holds them back. They also have stress due to their chronic pain and non-pain-related problems which exacerbates their symptoms. It is a vicious cycle. These pain and stress feelings as well as emotions, learning, and memory are managed by the hippocampus. Neuropathic pain impacts the nervous system, and hippocampal neurogenesis, its growth and development of nervous tissue, is aggravated by stress. (1) To combat this negative effect on the nervous system, researchers are studying nutrients like curcumin. Curcumin decreased chronic pain and enhanced cognitive impairment and memory deficit linked to long-term sciatic nerve constriction. Researchers describe how hippocampal neurogenesis and synaptic plasticity improvements may be acknowledged, so we’ll just thank them (and be grateful that researchers know the process!) instead of working to fully understand them ourselves. (2) Minster Chiropractic Center cares for many Minster leg pain patients and their pain relief due to a compressed and irritated sciatic nerve. Curcumin may help both memory and sciatica!

CURCUMIN FOR SCIATICA

There is convincing evidence that curcumin has an important part in the treatment of pathological pain stemming from sciatic nerve injury, neuropathy and such. (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 persuaded a few researchers to look at curcumin more closely. 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) stopped pain-related behavior, decreased inflammatory markers and improved memory deficient and spatial learning in chronically constricted rats. (5) Curcumin may be suitable for your Minster back pain condition, too. Minster Chiropractic Center will explore this with you at your next Minster chiropractic appointment.
