INFLAMMATION’S ROLE IN BACK AND NECK PAIN
It is all (well, a lot) about inflammation! Tarrytown
back pain sufferers who have 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) components. The pro-inflammatory mediators win.
They will be more present in back pain patients than the
anti-inflammatory ones. And patients like you detect this difference!
They will have higher visual analog
scale scores for pain. (1) Even more specifically,
the level of lumbar radicular (leg) pain disc herniation patients experience is
recently associated with the level of inflammatory
marker microRNA-17 found in their disc’s nucleus pulposus. MicroRNAs
modulate neuroinflammatory processes like the one set
off when a disc herniates. (2) Inflammation is a piece of the
disc herniation event. The body’s inflammatory response to spine pain is real. Your Tarrytown chiropractor
recognizes this and helps lessen the inflammatory
as well as mechanical factors affecting your Tarrytown
back pain, neck pain, leg pain and arm pain experience.
Listen to this discussion about care of the herniated
disc 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.
Tarrytown 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 therapeutic
activity, particularly its role in decreasing
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 reduced
inflammation. (4) Your chiropractor understands that decreasing inflammation is not a one-pronged approach. The Devil’s Claw’s addition to
the Tarrytown chiropractic treatment plan may increase
the inflammation reduction you want to help you attain the
pain reduction you desire.
