Southern New Hampshire Leg Pain and Memory Benefit from Curcumin

June 08, 2021

Memory and back pain. Back pain and cognition. Is there a relationship? Ask any Southern New Hampshire back pain sufferer who has had the pain for some time, and you will hear just how the mind and memory just do not seem to work like normal when pain is in play. New Hampshire Spine and Sport understands. Back pain specialists like yours at New Hampshire Spine and Sport understand this connection. Pain affects the brain and its memory function. Chiropractic care works to decrease the pain, and New Hampshire Spine and Sport may propose some curcumin to aid in the pain relief…and memory and cognition improvement.


Chronic pain sufferers recognize that their pain influences their quality of life. It slows them down. It holds them back. They also have stress due to their chronic pain and non-pain-related problems which worsens their symptoms. It is a nasty cycle. These pain and stress feelings as well as emotions, learning, and memory are managed 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 fight this negative effect on the nervous system, researchers are researching nutrients like curcumin. Curcumin eased chronic pain and enhanced cognitive impairment and memory deficit associated with long-term sciatic nerve constriction. Researchers describe how hippocampal neurogenesis and synaptic plasticity improvements may be acknowledged, so we will just thank them (and be grateful that researchers know the process!) instead of working to fully get them ourselves. (2) New Hampshire Spine and Sport treats many Southern New Hampshire leg pain patients and their pain relief due to a compressed and irritated sciatic nerve. Curcumin may help both memory and sciatica!


There is convincing evidence that curcumin has an important part in the treatment of pathological pain stemming from sciatic nerve injury, neuropathy and such. (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 a few researchers to study curcumin more. Curcumin is said to have anti-inflammatory and analgesic pain-reducing effects…without the side-effects. (4) Other researchers discovered that nanocurcumin (a soluble form of curcumin) ended pain-related behavior, reduced inflammatory markers and enhanced memory deficient and spatial learning in chronically constricted rats. (5) Curcumin may be suitable for your Southern New Hampshire back pain condition, too. New Hampshire Spine and Sport will delve into this with you at your next Southern New Hampshire chiropractic visit.
