INFLAMMATION’S ROLE IN BACK AND NECK PAIN
It’s all (well, a lot) about inflammation! In Toronto
back pain patients - acute or chronic back pain sufferers - there is an imbalance
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 win.
They will be more present in back pain patients than the
anti-inflammatory ones. And patients like you notice 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
newly associated with the level of inflammatory
marker microRNA-17 seen in their disc’s nucleus pulposus. MicroRNAs
control neuroinflammatory processes like the one begun when a disc herniates. (2) Inflammation is a piece of the
disc herniation event. The inflammatory
response of the body to spine pain is real. Your Toronto chiropractor
knows this and helps diminish the inflammatory
as well as mechanical issues influencing your Toronto
back pain, neck pain, leg pain and arm pain experience.
Listen to this discussion on care of the herniated
disc 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.
Toronto 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 noted for its beneficial
activity, especially its role in reducing
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 is well aware that getting
rid of inflammation is not a one-pronged approach. The Devil’s Claw’s addition to
the Toronto chiropractic treatment plan may increase
the inflammation reduction you want to help you attain the
pain reduction you desire.
