Millville Leg Pain and Memory Benefit from Curcumin

Back pain and Memory. Back pain and cognition. Is there a relationship? Ask any Millville 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 on the mind. Wilson Family Chiropractic understands. Back pain specialists like yours at Wilson Family Chiropractic understand this connection. Pain alters the brain and its memory function. Chiropractic care works to decrease the pain, and Wilson Family Chiropractic may suggest some curcumin to aid in the pain relief…and memory and cognition recovery.

CURCUMIN FOR MEMORY ISSUES

Chronic pain sufferers know that their pain affects their quality of life. It slows them down. It holds them back. They also have stress because of their chronic pain and non-pain-related issues which aggravates their symptoms. It’s a nasty cycle. These pain and stress feelings alongside emotions, learning, and memory are processed by the hippocampus. Neuropathic pain impacts the nervous system, and hippocampal neurogenesis, its growth and development of nervous tissue, is exacerbated by stress. (1) To push back against this negative effect on the nervous system, researchers are looking to nutrients like curcumin. Curcumin eased chronic pain and improved cognitive impairment and memory deficit associated with long-term sciatic nerve constriction. Researchers describe how hippocampal neurogenesis and synaptic plasticity improvements may be thanked, so we’ll just do that (and be grateful that researchers know the process!) instead of working to totally understand them ourselves. (2) Wilson Family Chiropractic treats many Millville 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 convincing evidence that curcumin has an important part in the treatment of pathological pain stemming from sciatic nerve injury, neuropathy and such. (3) Current drugs for acute pain (opioids, NSAIDs, acetaminophen and such) help but come with side-effects (renal, liver, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal) and have a potential for abuse. This stimulated some 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, decreased inflammatory markers and improved memory deficient and spatial learning in chronically constricted rats. (5) Curcumin may be appropriate for your Millville back pain condition, too. Wilson Family Chiropractic will explore this with you at your next Millville chiropractic appointment.
