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 part 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.
