INFLAMMATION’S ROLE IN BACK AND NECK PAIN
It is all (well, a lot) about inflammation! In Sandy Springs
back pain patients - acute or chronic back pain sufferers - there is an imbalance
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 greater 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 distinctively,
the level of lumbar radicular (leg) pain disc herniation patients experience is
recently linked to the level of inflammatory
marker microRNA-17 found in their disc’s nucleus pulposus. MicroRNAs
modulate neuroinflammatory processes like the one set
off 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 Sandy Springs chiropractor
recognizes this and helps diminish the inflammatory
as well as mechanical factors influencing your Sandy Springs
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.
Sandy Springs 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, especially its role in reducing
inflammation. (3) Osteoarthritis responds 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 is well aware that reducing inflammation is not a one-pronged approach. The addition of Devil’s Claw to
the Sandy Springs chiropractic treatment plan may increase
the inflammation reduction you want to help you attain the
pain reduction you desire.
