INFLAMMATION’S ROLE IN BACK AND NECK PAIN
It’s all (well, a lot) about inflammation! Williamson
back pain sufferers with 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 prevail.
They will be more present in back pain patients than the
anti-inflammatory ones. And patients like you detect this difference!
They will mark their visual analog scale scores. (1) Even more specifically,
the level of lumbar radicular (leg) pain disc herniation patients experience is
newly linked to the level of inflammatory
marker microRNA-17 seen in their disc’s nucleus pulposus. MicroRNAs
control neuroinflammatory processes like the one started when a disc herniates. (2) Inflammation is a part of the
disc herniation occurrence. The inflammatory
response of the body to spine pain is real. Your Williamson chiropractor
recognizes this and helps reduce the inflammatory
as well as mechanical issues influencing your Williamson
back pain, neck pain, leg pain and arm pain experience.
Listen to this discussion on 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.
Williamson 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, especially its role in reducing
inflammation. (3) Osteoarthritis reacts well to it. In new research, Devil’s Claw
reportedly deterred 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 decreased
inflammation. (4) Your chiropractor understands that reducing inflammation is not a one-pronged approach. The addition of Devil’s Claw to
the Williamson chiropractic treatment plan may enhance
the inflammation reduction you want to help you attain the
pain reduction you desire.
