August 2019 Healthy News: The Role of Inflammation in Back Pain and The Anti-Inflammatory Potential of Devils Claw

The role of inflammation in Lynchburg back pain is real. Chiropractic care can help. 

INFLAMMATION’S ROLE IN BACK AND NECK PAIN

It is all (well, a lot) about inflammation! Lynchburg back pain sufferers who have acute or chronic pain have an inequality 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 win. They will be greater in back pain patients than the anti-inflammatory ones. And patients like you see this difference! 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 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 Lynchburg chiropractor recognizes this and helps diminish the inflammatory as well as mechanical factors affecting your Lynchburg back pain, neck pain, leg pain and arm pain experience.  

Listen to this discussion about 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.  

 

Lynchburg CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:
Devil’s Claw for Inflammation

Devil’s Claw helps reduce inflammation! Traditional medicine has used it for many years for a variety of ailments. The harpagoside compound of Devil’s Claw is noted for its beneficial activity, particularly its role in decreasing inflammation. (3) Osteoarthritis responds 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 averted arachidonic acid metabolism and eicosanoid biosynthesis, leading to COX-2 inhibition and decreased inflammation. (4) Your chiropractor knows that getting rid of inflammation is not a one-pronged approach. Adding Devil’s Claw to the Lynchburg chiropractic treatment plan may increase the inflammation reduction you want to get you to the pain reduction you desire.
