New Roads Leg Pain and Memory Benefit from Curcumin

Back pain and Memory. Cognition and back pain. Is there a relationship? Ask any New Roads back pain sufferer who’s had the pain for some time, and you will hear just how the mind and memory just don’t seem to work like normal when pain is in play. New Roads Chiropractic Center understands. Back pain specialists like yours at New Roads Chiropractic Center understand this connection. Pain alters the brain and its memory function. Chiropractic care works to decrease the pain, and New Roads Chiropractic Center may suggest some curcumin to foster 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 because of their chronic pain and non-pain-related problems which aggravates their symptoms. It’s a nasty cycle. These pain and stress feelings alongside emotions, learning, and memory are processed by the hippocampus. Neuropathic pain affects 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 reduced chronic pain and enhanced cognitive impairment and memory deficit linked to long-term sciatic nerve constriction. Researchers explain that hippocampal neurogenesis and synaptic plasticity improvements may be thanked, so we’ll just do that (and be grateful that researchers know the process!) instead of working to totally get them ourselves. (2) New Roads Chiropractic Center cares for many New Roads leg pain patients and their pain relief from a compressed and irritated sciatic nerve. Curcumin may improve both memory and sciatica!

CURCUMIN FOR SCIATICA

There is compelling evidence that curcumin has an important role in the treatment of pathological pain stemming from sciatic nerve injury, neuropathy and the like. (3) Current drugs for acute pain (opioids, NSAIDs, acetaminophen and such) help but come with side-effects (renal, liver, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal) and have a potential for abuse. This persuaded some 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 found that nanocurcumin (a soluble form of curcumin) stopped pain-related behavior, reduced inflammatory markers and improved memory deficient and spatial learning in chronically constricted rats. (5) Curcumin may be appropriate for your New Roads back pain condition, too. New Roads Chiropractic Center will delve into this with you at your next New Roads chiropractic visit.
