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

The role of inflammation in Williamson back pain is real. Chiropractic care can manage it. 

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 piece 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.
