August 2019 Healthy News: The Role of Inflammation in Back Pain and The Anti-Inflammatory Potential of Devils Claw

The role of inflammation in Fernandina Beach back pain is real. Chiropractic care can help. 

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 reducing 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.
