INFLAMMATION’S ROLE IN BACK AND NECK PAIN
It’s all (well, a lot) about inflammation! Southern New Hampshire back pain sufferers who have acute or chronic pain have 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 more present in back pain patients than the anti-inflammatory ones. And patients like you see this difference! They will mark their visual analog scale scores. (1) Even more specifically, the level of lumbar radicular (leg) pain disc herniation patients experience is newly associated with the level of inflammatory marker microRNA-17 seen in their disc’s nucleus pulposus. MicroRNAs control neuroinflammatory processes like the one started when a disc herniates. (2) Inflammation is a part of the disc herniation occurrence. The inflammatory response of the body to spine pain is real. Your Southern New Hampshire chiropractor knows this and helps reduce the inflammatory as well as mechanical issues affecting your Southern New Hampshire back pain, neck pain, leg pain and arm pain experience.
Listen to this discussion about care of the disc herniation 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.
Southern New Hampshire CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:
Devil’s Claw for Inflammation
Devil’s Claw helps decrease 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 beneficial activity, especially its role in decreasing inflammation. (3) Osteoarthritis reacts 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 reducing inflammation is not a one-pronged approach. The Devil’s Claw’s addition to the Southern New Hampshire chiropractic treatment plan may improve the inflammation reduction you want to help you attain the pain reduction you desire.
