Eugene Leg Pain and Memory Benefit from Curcumin

Back pain and Memory. Cognition and back pain. Is there a relationship? Ask any Eugene back pain sufferer who’s had the pain for some time, and you will hear just how the mind and memory just do not seem to work like normal when pain is on the mind. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic understands. Back pain specialists like yours at Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic understand this connection. Pain disturbs the brain and its memory function. Chiropractic care works to reduce the pain, and Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic may propose some curcumin to foster the pain relief…and memory and cognition recovery.

CURCUMIN FOR MEMORY ISSUES

Chronic pain sufferers know that their pain influences their quality of life. It slows them down. It holds them back. They also experience stress because of their chronic pain and non-pain-related problems which aggravates their symptoms. It’s a vicious cycle. These pain and stress feelings as well as emotions, learning, and memory are managed by the hippocampus. Neuropathic pain affects the nervous system, and hippocampal neurogenesis, its growth and development of nervous tissue, is exacerbated by stress. (1) To combat this negative effect on the nervous system, researchers are studying nutrients like curcumin. Curcumin reduced chronic pain and improved cognitive impairment and memory deficit linked to long-term sciatic nerve constriction. Researchers explain that hippocampal neurogenesis and synaptic plasticity improvements may be thanked, so we will just do that (and be grateful that researchers understand the process!) instead of working to totally understand them ourselves. (2) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic cares for many Eugene 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 plays an important part in the treatment of pathological pain stemming from sciatic nerve injury, neuropathy and such. (3) Current drugs for acute pain (opioids, NSAIDs, acetaminophen and such) help but also have side-effects (renal, liver, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal) and have a potential for abuse. This persuaded some researchers to study curcumin more. Curcumin is reported to have anti-inflammatory and analgesic pain-reducing effects…without the side-effects. (4) Other researchers found that nanocurcumin (a soluble form of curcumin) ended pain-related behavior, reduced inflammatory markers and improved memory deficient and spatial learning in chronically constricted rats. (5) Curcumin may be suitable for your Eugene back pain condition, too. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic will delve into this with you at your next Eugene chiropractic visit.
