Sandy Springs Leg Pain and Memory Benefit from Curcumin

Back pain and Memory. Back pain and cognition. Is there a relationship? Ask any Sandy Springs back pain sufferer who has had the pain for a while, and you will hear just how the mind and memory just don’t seem to function like normal when pain is in play. Cross Chiropractic Center gets it. Back pain specialists like yours at Cross Chiropractic Center understand this connection. Pain disturbs the brain and its memory function. Chiropractic care works to reduce the pain, and Cross Chiropractic Center may propose some curcumin to foster the pain relief…and memory and cognition improvement.

CURCUMIN FOR MEMORY ISSUES

Chronic pain sufferers know that their pain affects their quality of life. It slows them down. It holds them back. They also have stress due to their chronic pain and non-pain-related problems which worsens their symptoms. It is a vicious cycle. These pain and stress feelings alongside emotions, learning, and memory are managed by the hippocampus. Neuropathic pain impacts the nervous system, and hippocampal neurogenesis, its growth and development of nervous tissue, is exacerbated by stress. (1) To fight this negative effect on the nervous system, researchers are looking to nutrients like curcumin. Curcumin eased chronic pain and enhanced cognitive impairment and memory deficit linked to long-term sciatic nerve constriction. Researchers describe how hippocampal neurogenesis and synaptic plasticity improvements may be thanked, so we’ll just do that (and be grateful that researchers know the process!) instead of working to totally get them ourselves. (2) Cross Chiropractic Center treats many Sandy Springs leg pain patients and their pain relief from a compressed and irritated sciatic nerve. Curcumin may help both memory and sciatica!

CURCUMIN FOR SCIATICA

There is compelling evidence that curcumin has an important role in the treatment of pathological pain due to sciatic nerve injury, neuropathy and such. (3) Current drugs for acute pain (opioids, NSAIDs, acetaminophen and such) help but come with side-effects (renal, liver, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal) and have a potential for abuse. This persuaded some researchers to look at curcumin more closely. Curcumin is said to have anti-inflammatory and analgesic pain-reducing effects…without the side-effects. (4) Other researchers discovered that nanocurcumin (a soluble form of curcumin) prevented pain-related behavior, decreased inflammatory markers and enhanced memory deficient and spatial learning in chronically constricted rats. (5) Curcumin may be applicable for your Sandy Springs back pain condition, too. Cross Chiropractic Center will delve into this with you at your next Sandy Springs chiropractic visit.
