INFLAMMATION’S ROLE IN BACK AND NECK PAIN
It is all (well, a lot) about inflammation! In Ashburn
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) factors. The pro-inflammatory mediators win.
They will be greater in back pain patients than the
anti-inflammatory ones. And patients like you detect this difference!
They will mark their visual analog scale scores. (1) Even more specifically,
the level of lumbar radicular (leg) pain disc herniation patients experience is
recently linked to the level of inflammatory
marker microRNA-17 found in their disc’s nucleus pulposus. MicroRNAs
modulate neuroinflammatory processes like the one started when a disc herniates. (2) Inflammation is a part of the
disc herniation occurrence. The body’s inflammatory response to spine pain is real. Your Ashburn chiropractor
recognizes this and helps diminish the inflammatory
as well as mechanical factors affecting your Ashburn
back pain, neck pain, leg pain and arm pain experience.
Listen to this discussion about 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.
Ashburn CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:
Devil’s Claw for Inflammation
Devil’s Claw helps reduce inflammation! Traditional
medicine has used it for many years for a variety of ailments. The
harpagoside compound of Devil’s Claw is known for its beneficial
activity, especially its role in decreasing
inflammation. (3) Osteoarthritis reacts well to it. In new research, Devil’s Claw
reportedly inhibited 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 understands that getting
rid of inflammation is not a one-pronged approach. The Devil’s Claw’s addition to
the Ashburn chiropractic treatment plan may improve
the inflammation reduction you want to get you to the
pain reduction you desire.
