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

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

INFLAMMATION’S ROLE IN BACK AND NECK PAIN

It is all (well, a lot) about inflammation! Pensacola 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 more present in back pain patients than the anti-inflammatory ones. And patients like you notice this difference! They will mark their visual analog scale scores. (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 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 body’s inflammatory response to spine pain is real. Your Pensacola chiropractor recognizes this and helps diminish the inflammatory as well as mechanical factors affecting your Pensacola back pain, neck pain, leg pain and arm pain experience.  

Listen to this discussion about 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.  

 

Pensacola 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 known for its beneficial activity, particularly 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 averted 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. Adding Devil’s Claw to the Pensacola chiropractic treatment plan may improve the inflammation reduction you want to help you attain the pain reduction you desire.
