Pensacola Leg Pain and Memory Benefit from Curcumin

Memory and back pain. Cognition and back pain. Is there a link? Ask any Pensacola back pain sufferer who has had the pain for some time, and you will hear just how the mind and memory just do not seem to function like normal when pain is in play. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center understands. Back pain specialists like yours at Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center understand this connection. Pain affects the brain and its memory function. Chiropractic care works to reduce the pain, and Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center may suggest some curcumin to aid in the pain relief…and memory and cognition improvement.

CURCUMIN FOR MEMORY ISSUES

Chronic pain sufferers recognize that their pain influences their quality of life. It slows them down. It holds them back. They also deal with stress because of their chronic pain and non-pain-related issues which worsens their symptoms. It is a nasty cycle. These pain and stress feelings alongside emotions, learning, and memory are processed by the hippocampus. Neuropathic pain affects the nervous system, and hippocampal neurogenesis, its growth and development of nervous tissue, is exacerbated by stress. (1) To push back against this negative effect on the nervous system, researchers are researching nutrients like curcumin. Curcumin eased chronic pain and improved cognitive impairment and memory deficit associated with long-term sciatic nerve constriction. Researchers explain that hippocampal neurogenesis and synaptic plasticity improvements may be acknowledged, so we will just do that (and be grateful that researchers understand the process!) instead of working to totally get them ourselves. (2) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center cares for many Pensacola leg pain patients and their pain relief from a compressed and irritated sciatic nerve. Curcumin may help both memory and sciatica!

CURCUMIN FOR SCIATICA

There is convincing evidence that curcumin has an important part in the treatment of pathological pain stemming from sciatic nerve injury, neuropathy and the like. (3) Current drugs for acute pain (opioids, NSAIDs, acetaminophen and such) help but come with side-effects (renal, liver, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal) and hold a potential for abuse. This prompted a few researchers to study curcumin more. Curcumin is said to have anti-inflammatory and analgesic pain-reducing effects…without the side-effects. (4) Other researchers found that nanocurcumin (a soluble form of curcumin) stopped pain-related behavior, reduced inflammatory markers and enhanced memory deficient and spatial learning in chronically constricted rats. (5) Curcumin may be applicable for your Pensacola back pain condition, too. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center will explore this with you at your next Pensacola chiropractic appointment.
