Most Chiropractic Clinic Treats Back Pain and Its Inflammatory Process

Red. Swollen. Hot. Painful. Signs of inflammation that no Murfreesboro back pain patient desires. Most Chiropractic Clinic delivers chiropractic services to reduce back pain by recognizing and addressing any associated inflammation.

INFLAMMATION AND BACK PAIN RELATED

How can you differentiate if there’s inflammation? Like other issues, researchers search for ways to measure it. To measure inflammation, researchers try to find inflammatory biomarkers, biological markers like tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α), C-reactive protein (CRP), and interleukin-6, interleukin-1β, that exposed an increase. Researchers have uncovered that chronic inflammation increased cytokine production and activated pro-inflammatory pathways that may lead to non-specific low back pain. (1) Researchers observed systemic inflammation in chronic LBP and may affect transition from acute to persistent low back pain. Specifically, CRP was discovered to be elevated in acute low back pain patients versus control patients. TNF was higher in back pain patients especially in patients with depression. (2) Since researchers have already recorded that inflammation is tied to back pain, Most Chiropractic Clinic knows that inflammation must be reduced in order to help reduce Murfreesboro back pain.

HOW TO STOP INFLAMMATION

Well, first, know what inflammation does. Researchers used lipopolysaccharide (LPS) to simulate intervertebral disc degeneration in experiments. They want to see what might potentially decrease the generated back pain that comes with it and/or even avoid the degeneration initially so we humans do not have to experience low back pain at all! That is a tall order though, Most Chiropractic Clinic knows. But follow this: researchers used LPS to establish the degeneration that preceded low back pain. They found that procyanidin B3 (PRO-B3) found in our diets inhibited the production of inflammatory markers - tumor necrosis factor α (TNF-Α), interleukin-6 (IL-6), prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) and nitric oxide – associated with disc degeneration. It also prevented the loss of the disc’s gelatin nucleus pulposus cells and structural damage of its anulus fibrosus (outer rings of disc). What does all this mean to researchers looking for a way to prevent degenerative disc degeneration (DDD)? PRO-B3 may be considered as a treatment agent for intervertebral disc degeneration (IVDD). This is a welcome note for those 80% of us adults who are on track to get IVDD, a major cause of low back pain. (3) Another current paper explained that the p38 MAPK inflammatory pathway may be a way to delay DDD utilizing the tyrosine kinase inhibitor, Genistein. (4) That’s encouraging for the treatment of Murfreesboro back pain and inflammation.

Vitamin D FOR INFLAMMATION

Research says that vitamin D deficiency is associated with low back pain that is stronger in younger women and in those with more severe deficiency. (5) Vitamin D deficiency is linked to lumbar disc disease and more severe low back pain in postmenopausal women. (6) Let’s talk about your vitamin D status at your next Murfreesboro chiropractic appointment.
