West Palm Beach Leg Pain and Memory Benefit from Curcumin

Memory and back pain. Cognition and back pain. Is there a relationship? Ask any West Palm Beach 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 work like normal when pain is on the mind. Chiropractic Care gets it. Back pain specialists like yours at Chiropractic Care understand this connection. Pain alters the brain and its memory function. Chiropractic care works to reduce the pain, and Chiropractic Care may propose some curcumin to aid in the pain relief…and memory and cognition improvement.

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 deal with stress due to their chronic pain and non-pain-related problems which worsens their symptoms. It’s a vicious cycle. These pain and stress feelings alongside 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 fight this negative effect on the nervous system, researchers are looking to nutrients like curcumin. Curcumin decreased chronic pain and improved cognitive impairment and memory deficit associated with 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) Chiropractic Care treats many West Palm Beach leg pain patients and their pain relief due to a compressed and irritated sciatic nerve. Curcumin may help both memory and sciatica!

CURCUMIN FOR SCIATICA

There is convincing evidence that curcumin plays an important role in the treatment of pathological pain due to sciatic nerve injury, neuropathy and the like. (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 stimulated a few 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) stopped pain-related behavior, reduced inflammatory markers and enhanced memory deficient and spatial learning in chronically constricted rats. (5) Curcumin may be appropriate for your West Palm Beach back pain condition, too. Chiropractic Care will explore this with you at your next West Palm Beach chiropractic visit.
