INFLAMMATION’S ROLE IN BACK AND NECK PAIN
It is all (well, a lot) about inflammation! In Fernandina Beach
back pain patients - acute or chronic back pain sufferers - there is an inequality
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 win.
They will be more present in back pain patients than the
anti-inflammatory ones. And patients like you see 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
recently linked to the level of inflammatory
marker microRNA-17 seen 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 Fernandina Beach chiropractor
knows this and helps reduce the inflammatory
as well as mechanical factors affecting your Fernandina Beach
back pain, neck pain, leg pain and arm pain experience.
Listen to this discussion on 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.
Fernandina Beach 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 a variety of ailments. The
harpagoside compound of Devil’s Claw is noted for its therapeutic
activity, particularly its role in decreasing
inflammation. (3) Osteoarthritis responds well to it. In new research, Devil’s Claw
reportedly inhibited 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 knows that reducing inflammation is not a one-pronged approach. Adding
Devil’s Claw to
the Fernandina Beach chiropractic treatment plan may improve
the inflammation reduction you want to help you attain the
pain reduction you desire.
