Wilson Family Chiropractic Treats Back Pain and Its Inflammatory Process

Red. Swollen. Hot. Painful. Signs of inflammation that no Millville back pain patient wants to suffer. Wilson Family Chiropractic delivers chiropractic services to decrease back pain by identifying and addressing any related inflammation.

INFLAMMATION AND BACK PAIN RELATED

How can you tell if there is inflammation? Like anything else, researchers look for ways to measure it. To measure inflammation, researchers look for inflammatory biomarkers, biological markers like tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α), C-reactive protein (CRP), and interleukin-6, interleukin-1β, that revealed an increase. Researchers have discovered that chronic inflammation raised cytokine production and stimulated pro-inflammatory pathways that may cause non-specific low back pain. (1) Researchers observed systemic inflammation in chronic LBP and may affect transition from acute to persistent low back pain. Particularly, CRP was discovered to be elevated in acute low back pain patients versus control patients. TNF was greater in back pain patients particularly in patients with depression. (2) Since researchers have already verified that inflammation is linked to back pain, Wilson Family Chiropractic knows that inflammation must be reduced in order to help reduce Millville back pain.

HOW TO STOP INFLAMMATION

Well, first, understand what inflammation does. Researchers used lipopolysaccharide (LPS) to simulate intervertebral disc degeneration in trials. They want to figure out what may help reduce the produced back pain that comes with it and/or even avert the degeneration in the first place so we humans do not have to suffer low back pain at all! That’s a tall order though, Wilson Family Chiropractic understands. But consider this: researchers used LPS to establish the degeneration that preceded low back pain. They found that procyanidin B3 (PRO-B3) found in our diets prevented the production of inflammatory markers - tumor necrosis factor α (TNF-Α), interleukin-6 (IL-6), prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) and nitric oxide – linked to disc degeneration. It also stopped the loss of the disc’s gelatinous nucleus pulposus cells and structural damage of its anulus fibrosus (outer rings of disc). What does all this mean to researchers looking for a way to stop degenerative disc degeneration (DDD)? PRO-B3 may be considered as a treatment agent for intervertebral disc degeneration (IVDD). This is a welcome bit of information for those 80% of us adults who are on track to experience IVDD, a major cause of low back pain. (3) Another current paper explained that the p38 MAPK inflammatory pathway may be able to postpone DDD utilizing the tyrosine kinase inhibitor, Genistein. (4) That’s hopeful in the treatment of Millville back pain and inflammation.

Vitamin D FOR INFLAMMATION

Research states that vitamin D deficiency is associated with low back pain that is stronger in younger women and in those with more severe deficiency. (5) Vitamin D deficiency is linked to lumbar disc disease and more severe low back pain in postmenopausal women. (6) Let us talk about your vitamin D status at your next Millville chiropractic appointment.
