Oxford Leg Pain and Memory Benefit from Curcumin

Memory and back pain. Back pain and cognition. Is there a link? Ask any Oxford back pain sufferer who has had the pain for a while, and you will hear just how the mind and memory just don’t seem to work like normal when pain is on the mind. Satterwhite Chiropractic gets it. Back pain specialists like yours at Satterwhite Chiropractic understand this connection. Pain disturbs the brain and its memory function. Chiropractic care works to reduce the pain, and Satterwhite Chiropractic may propose some curcumin to aid in the pain relief…and memory and cognition recovery.

CURCUMIN FOR MEMORY ISSUES

Chronic pain sufferers recognize that their pain influences 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 problems which exacerbates their symptoms. It is a nasty cycle. These pain and stress feelings as well as emotions, learning, and memory are managed by the hippocampus. Neuropathic pain affects the nervous system, and hippocampal neurogenesis, its growth and development of nervous tissue, is aggravated by stress. (1) To fight this negative effect on the nervous system, researchers are researching nutrients like curcumin. Curcumin eased chronic pain and improved cognitive impairment and memory deficit linked to long-term sciatic nerve constriction. Researchers explain that hippocampal neurogenesis and synaptic plasticity improvements may be thanked, so we’ll just thank them (and be grateful that researchers know the process!) instead of working to fully get them ourselves. (2) Satterwhite Chiropractic cares for many Oxford leg pain patients and their pain relief from a compressed and irritated sciatic nerve. Curcumin may help both memory and sciatica!

CURCUMIN FOR SCIATICA

There is compelling evidence that curcumin plays an important role in the treatment of pathological pain due to sciatic nerve injury, neuropathy and such. (3) Current drugs for acute pain (opioids, NSAIDs, acetaminophen and such) help but also have side-effects (renal, liver, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal) and have a potential for abuse. This persuaded some researchers to study curcumin more. Curcumin is said 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 enhanced memory deficient and spatial learning in chronically constricted rats. (5) Curcumin may be applicable for your Oxford back pain condition, too. Satterwhite Chiropractic will delve into this with you at your next Oxford chiropractic appointment.
