INFLAMMATION’S ROLE IN BACK AND NECK PAIN
It is all (well, a lot) about inflammation! In Largo
back pain patients - acute or chronic back pain sufferers - there is an imbalance
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 win.
They will be more present 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 distinctively,
the level of lumbar radicular (leg) pain disc herniation patients experience is
newly associated with the level of inflammatory
marker microRNA-17 seen in their disc’s nucleus pulposus. MicroRNAs
modulate neuroinflammatory processes like the one started 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 Largo chiropractor
recognizes this and helps reduce the inflammatory
as well as mechanical factors influencing your Largo
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.
Largo 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 known for its healing
activity, particularly its role in decreasing
inflammation. (3) Osteoarthritis reacts 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 averted arachidonic
acid metabolism and eicosanoid biosynthesis, leading to COX-2 inhibition and reduced
inflammation. (4) Your chiropractor is well aware that reducing inflammation is not a one-pronged approach. The Devil’s Claw’s addition to
the Largo chiropractic treatment plan may improve
the inflammation reduction you want to help you attain the
pain reduction you desire.
