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

The role of inflammation in Baton Rouge  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! Baton Rouge back pain sufferers with 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 prevail. They will be greater in back pain patients than the anti-inflammatory ones. And patients like you see this discrepancy! They will mark their visual analog scale scores. (1)  Even more specifically, the level of lumbar radicular (leg) pain disc herniation patients experience is recently linked to the level of inflammatory marker microRNA-17 found in their disc’s nucleus pulposus. MicroRNAs modulate neuroinflammatory processes like the one begun when a disc herniates. (2) Inflammation is a piece of the disc herniation occurrence. The body’s inflammatory response to spine pain is real. Your Baton Rouge chiropractor recognizes this and helps diminish the inflammatory as well as mechanical factors affecting your Baton Rouge back pain, neck pain, leg pain and arm pain experience.  

Listen to this discussion on care of the disc herniation 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.  

 

Baton Rouge 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, especially its role in reducing inflammation. (3) Osteoarthritis responds well to it. In new research, Devil’s Claw reportedly hampered nitric oxide, inflammatory cytokines (IL-6, IL-1β, and TNF-α), and PGE2 and prevented arachidonic acid metabolism and eicosanoid biosynthesis, leading to COX-2 inhibition and decreased inflammation. (4) Your chiropractor is well aware that reducing inflammation is not a one-pronged approach. Adding Devil’s Claw to the Baton Rouge chiropractic treatment plan may enhance the inflammation reduction you want to get you to the pain reduction you desire.
