Red. Swollen. Hot. Painful. Signs of inflammation that no Plainville back pain patient desires. Layden Chiropractic offers chiropractic services to reduce back pain by identifying and dealing with any related inflammation.

INFLAMMATION AND BACK PAIN RELATED

How can you deduce if there’s inflammation? Like other issues, researchers look for ways to measure it. To measure inflammation, researchers try to find inflammatory biomarkers, biological markers like tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α), C-reactive protein (CRP), and interleukin-6, interleukin-1β, that revealed an increase. Researchers have uncovered that chronic inflammation increased cytokine production and stimulated pro-inflammatory pathways that may bring about non-specific low back pain. (1) Researchers detected systemic inflammation in chronic LBP and may affect transition from acute to persistent low back pain. Particularly, CRP was discovered to be elevated in acute low back pain patients versus control patients. TNF was higher in back pain patients particularly in patients with depression. (2) Since researchers have already recorded that inflammation is tied to back pain, Layden Chiropractic realizes that inflammation must be decreased to help in reducing Plainville back pain.

HOW TO STOP INFLAMMATION

Well, first, know what inflammation does. Researchers made use of lipopolysaccharide (LPS) to create intervertebral disc degeneration in trials. They set out to figure out what might potentially reduce the generated back pain that comes with it and/or even prevent the degeneration initially so we humans don’t have to suffer low back pain at all! That’s a tall order though, Layden Chiropractic knows. But consider this: researchers utilized LPS to establish the degeneration that led to low back pain. They found that procyanidin B3 (PRO-B3) found in our diets prevented the production of inflammatory markers - tumor necrosis factor α (TNF-Α), interleukin-6 (IL-6), prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) and nitric oxide – associated with disc degeneration. It also stopped the loss of the disc’s gelatin nucleus pulposus cells and structural damage of its anulus fibrosus (outer rings of disc). What does all this indicate to researchers looking for a way to prevent degenerative disc degeneration (DDD)? PRO-B3 may be looked at as a treatment agent for intervertebral disc degeneration (IVDD). This is a welcome note for those 80% of us adults who are likely to have IVDD, a major cause of low back pain. (3) Another current paper explained that the p38 MAPK inflammatory pathway may be a way to delay DDD utilizing the tyrosine kinase inhibitor, Genistein. (4) That is encouraging for the treatment of Plainville back pain and inflammation.

Vitamin D FOR INFLAMMATION

Research says that vitamin D deficiency is associated with low back pain that is stronger in younger women and in those with more severe deficiency. (5) Vitamin D deficiency is linked to lumbar disc disease and more severe low back pain in postmenopausal women. (6) Let’s talk about your vitamin D status at your next Plainville chiropractic appointment.
