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

The role of inflammation in Millville back pain is real. Chiropractic care can help. 

INFLAMMATION’S ROLE IN BACK AND NECK PAIN

It is all (well, a lot) about inflammation! Millville back pain sufferers who have acute or chronic pain have 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 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 seen in their disc’s nucleus pulposus. MicroRNAs control neuroinflammatory processes like the one started 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 Millville chiropractor recognizes this and helps reduce the inflammatory as well as mechanical issues affecting your Millville back pain, neck pain, leg pain and arm pain experience.  

Listen to this discussion about 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.  

 

Millville 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 noted for its therapeutic activity, particularly its role in decreasing inflammation. (3) Osteoarthritis reacts well to it. In new research, Devil’s Claw reportedly deterred 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 reducing inflammation is not a one-pronged approach. The Devil’s Claw’s addition to the Millville chiropractic treatment plan may improve the inflammation reduction you want to get you to the pain reduction you desire.
