August 2019 Healthy News: The Role of Inflammation in Back Pain and The Anti-Inflammatory Potential of Devils Claw

The role of inflammation in New Roads back pain is real. Chiropractic care can manage it. 

INFLAMMATION’S ROLE IN BACK AND NECK PAIN

It is all (well, a lot) about inflammation! In New Roads 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) 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 difference! They will mark their visual analog scale scores. (1)  Even more distinctively, the level of lumbar radicular (leg) pain disc herniation patients experience is recently associated with the level of inflammatory marker microRNA-17 found 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 event. The body’s inflammatory response to spine pain is real. Your New Roads chiropractor knows this and helps diminish the inflammatory as well as mechanical issues affecting your New Roads 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.  

 

New Roads 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 all types of ailments. The harpagoside compound of Devil’s Claw is known for its healing activity, especially its role in reducing inflammation. (3) Osteoarthritis responds well to it. In new research, Devil’s Claw reportedly hampered nitric oxide, inflammatory cytokines (IL-6, IL-1β, and TNF-α), and PGE2 and averted arachidonic acid metabolism and eicosanoid biosynthesis, leading to COX-2 inhibition and reduced inflammation. (4) Your chiropractor understands that reducing inflammation is not a one-pronged approach. Adding Devil’s Claw to the New Roads chiropractic treatment plan may enhance the inflammation reduction you want to help you attain the pain reduction you desire.
