Murfreesboro Pain Relief with Green Tea

We need to bring back teatime, a quiet time in the middle of the afternoon to have a quiet cup of tea away from the bustle of life! (Your Murfreesboro chiropractor would enjoy such a time again!) Teatime was valuable for the mind and spirit and very likely quite good for the body. Most days, we just can’t imagine that we have time, but just enjoying tea on the run in an insulated mug on the way to your chiropractic appointment at Most Chiropractic Clinic can be advantageous, especially if it’s green tea.


In China, drinking tea is part of daily life. Not a bad thing! In evaluating the health benefits of tea and its active ingredients for osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis – familiar bone and joint diseases bothering many people – researchers found that tea has potential anti-COX (cycolooxygenase) factors and hormone-like effects. They concluded that tea has a vast potential to be helpful in medicine and healthcare especially as the mechanisms of various tea properties are defined as to their synergistic mechanisms. (1) Tea from plants around us offers us a tasty way to be healthier and even a bit painfree!


The more we acquire about what nature offers us by medicinal plants, the more we must appreciate nature! Green tea is a common beverage sourced from such medicinal plants. Green tea via a multitude of pharmacological activities and antinociceptive effects are proposed to be effective for pain relief because of its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Green tea is explained to be a safe and often effective treatment for pain management owing to its suppression of inflammation and oxidative stress. (2) Green tea’s major component, EGCG (epigallocatechin-3-gallate), has shown itself to be valuable for its anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties. Research papers have published how green tea is good diseases like neurodegenerative and cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, cancer, and obesity. Green tea and its EGCG seem to restrain the expression of inflammatory cytokines and inflammation-linked enzymes. The use of green tea potentially enhances the quality of life for inflammatory disease patients with no severe adverse side-effects. (3) Back pain and its related spinal pain conditions like leg, arm, and neck pain, etc., typically have inflammatory components with them, so adding green tea for its anti-inflammatory benefit may be an advantage.
