Lynchburg Leg Pain and Memory Benefit from Curcumin

Back pain and Memory. Cognition and back pain. Is there a link? Ask any Lynchburg back pain sufferer who has had the pain for some time, and you will hear just how the mind and memory just don’t seem to function like normal when pain is on the mind. Palmer Chiropractic Center understands. Back pain specialists like yours at Palmer Chiropractic Center understand this connection. Pain disturbs the brain and its memory function. Chiropractic care works to reduce the pain, and Palmer Chiropractic Center may propose some curcumin to aid in 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 issues which aggravates their symptoms. It is a nasty cycle. These pain and stress feelings as well as emotions, learning, and memory are processed by the hippocampus. Neuropathic pain impacts 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 researching nutrients like curcumin. Curcumin decreased 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 acknowledged, so we’ll just thank them (and be grateful that researchers understand the process!) instead of working to fully understand them ourselves. (2) Palmer Chiropractic Center cares for many Lynchburg 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 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 prompted some researchers to look at curcumin more closely. 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, decreased inflammatory markers and improved memory deficient and spatial learning in chronically constricted rats. (5) Curcumin may be suitable for your Lynchburg back pain condition, too. Palmer Chiropractic Center will delve into this with you at your next Lynchburg chiropractic visit.
