Baton Rouge Leg Pain and Memory Benefit from Curcumin

Memory and back pain. Back pain and cognition. Is there a link? Ask any Baton Rouge back pain sufferer who’s had the pain for some time, and you will hear just how the mind and memory just don’t seem to work like normal when pain is in play. Spine & Sports Rehab Center gets it. Back pain specialists like yours at Spine & Sports Rehab Center understand this connection. Pain disturbs the brain and its memory function. Chiropractic care works to reduce the pain, and Spine & Sports Rehab Center may suggest some curcumin to foster the pain relief…and memory and cognition improvement.

CURCUMIN FOR MEMORY ISSUES

Chronic pain sufferers know that their pain affects their quality of life. It slows them down. It holds them back. They also experience 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 as well as 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 reduced chronic pain and enhanced cognitive impairment and memory deficit linked to long-term sciatic nerve constriction. Researchers explain that hippocampal neurogenesis and synaptic plasticity improvements may be acknowledged, so we’ll just thank them (and be grateful that researchers understand the process!) instead of working to totally understand them ourselves. (2) Spine & Sports Rehab Center cares for many Baton Rouge 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 compelling evidence that curcumin has an important part in the treatment of pathological pain due to 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 persuaded a few researchers to study curcumin more. Curcumin is reported to have anti-inflammatory and analgesic pain-reducing effects…without the side-effects. (4) Other researchers discovered that nanocurcumin (a soluble form of curcumin) stopped pain-related behavior, decreased inflammatory markers and improved memory deficient and spatial learning in chronically constricted rats. (5) Curcumin may be suitable for your Baton Rouge back pain condition, too. Spine & Sports Rehab Center will explore this with you at your next Baton Rouge chiropractic appointment.
