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

The role of inflammation in Murfreesboro 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! Murfreesboro 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) components. The pro-inflammatory mediators win. They will be greater in back pain patients than the anti-inflammatory ones. And patients like you detect this discrepancy! They will have higher visual analog scale scores for pain. (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 modulate neuroinflammatory processes like the one set off when a disc herniates. (2) Inflammation is a part of the disc herniation event. The inflammatory response of the body to spine pain is real. Your Murfreesboro chiropractor knows this and helps diminish the inflammatory as well as mechanical issues affecting your Murfreesboro 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.  

 

Murfreesboro 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 all types of ailments. The harpagoside compound of Devil’s Claw is noted for its therapeutic 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 reduced inflammation. (4) Your chiropractor is well aware that decreasing inflammation is not a one-pronged approach. Adding Devil’s Claw to the Murfreesboro chiropractic treatment plan may improve the inflammation reduction you want to help you attain the pain reduction you desire.
