INFLAMMATION’S ROLE IN BACK AND NECK PAIN
It’s all (well, a lot) about inflammation! In West Palm Beach
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 prevail.
They will be greater in back pain patients than the
anti-inflammatory ones. And patients like you see this discrepancy!
They will have higher visual analog
scale scores for pain. (1) Even more distinctively,
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
control neuroinflammatory processes like the one started when a disc herniates. (2) Inflammation is a piece of the
disc herniation occurrence. The inflammatory
response of the body to spine pain is real. Your West Palm Beach chiropractor
knows this and helps lessen the inflammatory
as well as mechanical factors influencing your West Palm Beach
back pain, neck pain, leg pain and arm pain experience.
Listen to this discussion about 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.
West Palm Beach 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 therapeutic
activity, particularly its role in reducing
inflammation. (3) Osteoarthritis reacts well to it. In new research, Devil’s Claw
reportedly inhibited 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 reduced
inflammation. (4) Your chiropractor understands that reducing inflammation is not a one-pronged approach. The Devil’s Claw’s addition to
the West Palm Beach chiropractic treatment plan may enhance
the inflammation reduction you want to help you attain the
pain reduction you desire.
