Largo Leg Pain and Memory Benefit from Curcumin

Back pain and Memory. Back pain and cognition. Is there a relationship? Ask any Largo back pain sufferer who’s had the pain for some time, and you will hear just how the mind and memory just do not seem to function like normal when pain is in play. Hollstrom & Associates Inc gets it. Back pain specialists like yours at Hollstrom & Associates Inc understand this connection. Pain disturbs the brain and its memory function. Chiropractic care works to decrease the pain, and Hollstrom & Associates Inc may propose some curcumin to foster the pain relief…and memory and cognition recovery.

CURCUMIN FOR MEMORY ISSUES

Chronic pain sufferers recognize that their pain influences their quality of life. It slows them down. It holds them back. They also deal with stress due to their chronic pain and non-pain-related problems which aggravates their symptoms. It’s a vicious 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 aggravated by stress. (1) To combat this negative effect on the nervous system, researchers are studying nutrients like curcumin. Curcumin reduced chronic pain and improved cognitive impairment and memory deficit associated with long-term sciatic nerve constriction. Researchers explain that hippocampal neurogenesis and synaptic plasticity improvements may be thanked, so we’ll just thank them (and be grateful that researchers know the process!) instead of working to fully get them ourselves. (2) Hollstrom & Associates Inc cares for many Largo leg pain patients and their pain relief from a compressed and irritated sciatic nerve. Curcumin may improve 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 such. (3) Current drugs for acute pain (opioids, NSAIDs, acetaminophen and such) help but also have side-effects (renal, liver, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal) and hold a potential for abuse. This stimulated 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 found that nanocurcumin (a soluble form of curcumin) ended pain-related behavior, reduced inflammatory markers and improved memory deficient and spatial learning in chronically constricted rats. (5) Curcumin may be applicable for your Largo back pain condition, too. Hollstrom & Associates Inc will explore this with you at your next Largo chiropractic appointment.
