Amelia Chiropractic Clinic Treats Back Pain and Its Inflammatory Process

Red. Swollen. Hot. Painful. Signs of inflammation that no Fernandina Beach back pain patient desires. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic delivers chiropractic services to reduce back pain by recognizing and addressing any related inflammation.

INFLAMMATION AND BACK PAIN RELATED

How can you tell if there’s inflammation? Like other issues, researchers search 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 showed an increase. Researchers have uncovered that chronic inflammation increased cytokine production and stimulated pro-inflammatory pathways that may lead to non-specific low back pain. (1) Researchers observed systemic inflammation in chronic LBP and may affect transition from acute to persistent low back pain. Particularly, CRP was found elevated in acute low back pain patients and not in control patients. TNF was higher in back pain patients particularly in patients with depression. (2) Since researchers have already documented that inflammation is linked to back pain, Amelia Chiropractic Clinic realizes that inflammation must be reduced in order to help reduce Fernandina Beach back pain.

HOW TO STOP INFLAMMATION

Well, first, know what inflammation does. Researchers used lipopolysaccharide (LPS) to create intervertebral disc degeneration in experiments. They want to figure out what may potentially decrease the produced back pain that accompanies it and/or even avert the degeneration initially so we humans don’t have to suffer low back pain at all! That is a tall order though, Amelia Chiropractic Clinic understands. But follow this: researchers used LPS to establish the degeneration that preceded 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 prevented the loss of the disc’s gelatinous 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 bit of information for those 80% of us adults who are on track to have IVDD, a major cause of low back pain. (3) Another recent paper described that the p38 MAPK inflammatory pathway may be able to delay DDD utilizing the tyrosine kinase inhibitor, Genistein. (4) That’s hopeful in the treatment of Fernandina Beach back pain and inflammation.

Vitamin D FOR INFLAMMATION

Research states that vitamin D deficiency is linked 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 Fernandina Beach chiropractic appointment.
