INFLAMMATION’S ROLE IN BACK AND NECK PAIN
It’s all (well, a lot) about inflammation! In Oxford
back pain patients - acute or chronic back pain sufferers - there is 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 prevail.
They will be greater in back pain patients than the
anti-inflammatory ones. And patients like you see this discrepancy!
They will have higher visual analog
scale scores for pain. (1) Even more distinctively,
the level of lumbar radicular (leg) pain disc herniation patients experience is
newly associated with the level of inflammatory
marker microRNA-17 found in their disc’s nucleus pulposus. MicroRNAs
control neuroinflammatory processes like the one started when a disc herniates. (2) Inflammation is a part of the
disc herniation event. The body’s inflammatory response to spine pain is real. Your Oxford chiropractor
knows this and helps lessen the inflammatory
as well as mechanical factors affecting your Oxford
back pain, neck pain, leg pain and arm pain experience.
Listen to this discussion on 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.
Oxford CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:
Devil’s Claw for Inflammation
Devil’s Claw helps decrease 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 beneficial
activity, particularly its role in decreasing
inflammation. (3) Osteoarthritis responds 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 averted arachidonic
acid metabolism and eicosanoid biosynthesis, leading to COX-2 inhibition and reduced
inflammation. (4) Your chiropractor knows that getting
rid of inflammation is not a one-pronged approach. The Devil’s Claw’s addition to
the Oxford chiropractic treatment plan may enhance
the inflammation reduction you want to help you attain the
pain reduction you desire.
