INFLAMMATION’S ROLE IN BACK AND NECK PAIN
It’s all (well, a lot) about inflammation! In Plainville
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) components. The pro-inflammatory mediators prevail.
They will be more present in back pain patients than the
anti-inflammatory ones. And patients like you notice this difference!
They will have higher visual analog
scale scores for pain. (1) Even more distinctively,
the level of lumbar radicular (leg) pain disc herniation patients experience is
newly associated with the level of inflammatory
marker microRNA-17 found in their disc’s nucleus pulposus. MicroRNAs
modulate neuroinflammatory processes like the one started when a disc herniates. (2) Inflammation is a part of the
disc herniation event. The body’s inflammatory response to spine pain is real. Your Plainville chiropractor
knows this and helps reduce the inflammatory
as well as mechanical issues affecting your Plainville
back pain, neck pain, leg pain and arm pain experience.
Listen to this discussion about 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.
Plainville 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 a variety of ailments. The
harpagoside compound of Devil’s Claw is known for its therapeutic
activity, especially its role in reducing
inflammation. (3) Osteoarthritis responds well to it. In new research, Devil’s Claw
reportedly deterred 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 getting
rid of inflammation is not a one-pronged approach. The addition of Devil’s Claw to
the Plainville chiropractic treatment plan may improve
the inflammation reduction you want to help you attain the
pain reduction you desire.
