INFLAMMATION’S ROLE IN BACK AND NECK PAIN
It is all (well, a lot) about inflammation! Eugene
back pain sufferers who have acute or chronic pain have an imbalance
of pro-inflammatory (TNFA, IL-1B, IL-6, IL-2 and IFN) and anti-inflammatory (IL-1
TA, STNFR2, IL-10) factors. The pro-inflammatory mediators prevail.
They will be more present in back pain patients than the
anti-inflammatory ones. And patients like you notice this discrepancy!
They will have higher visual analog
scale scores for pain. (1) Even more specifically,
the level of lumbar radicular (leg) pain disc herniation patients experience is
newly 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 piece of the
disc herniation event. The body’s inflammatory response to spine pain is real. Your Eugene chiropractor
knows this and helps reduce the inflammatory
as well as mechanical factors influencing your Eugene
back pain, neck pain, leg pain and arm pain experience.
Listen to this discussion on care of the disc herniation 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.
Eugene 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 known for its healing
activity, particularly its role in decreasing
inflammation. (3) Osteoarthritis responds well to it. In new research, Devil’s Claw
reportedly hampered nitric oxide, inflammatory
cytokines (IL-6, IL-1β, and TNF-α), and PGE2 and averted arachidonic
acid metabolism and eicosanoid biosynthesis, leading to COX-2 inhibition and reduced
inflammation. (4) Your chiropractor is well aware that decreasing inflammation is not a one-pronged approach. Adding
Devil’s Claw to
the Eugene chiropractic treatment plan may enhance
the inflammation reduction you want to get you to the
pain reduction you desire.
