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.
