August 2019 Healthy News: The Role of Inflammation in Back Pain and The Anti-Inflammatory Potential of Devils Claw

The role of inflammation in Auburn back pain is real. Chiropractic care can help. 

INFLAMMATION’S ROLE IN BACK AND NECK PAIN

It’s all (well, a lot) about inflammation! Auburn back pain sufferers who have acute or chronic pain have 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 win. They will be more present in back pain patients than the anti-inflammatory ones. And patients like you notice this difference! They will mark their visual analog scale scores. (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 seen in their disc’s nucleus pulposus. MicroRNAs control neuroinflammatory processes like the one started when a disc herniates. (2) Inflammation is a piece of the disc herniation occurrence. The body’s inflammatory response to spine pain is real. Your Auburn chiropractor recognizes this and helps diminish the inflammatory as well as mechanical factors influencing your Auburn 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.  

 

Auburn 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 decreasing 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 averted arachidonic acid metabolism and eicosanoid biosynthesis, leading to COX-2 inhibition and decreased inflammation. (4) Your chiropractor is well aware that decreasing inflammation is not a one-pronged approach. The Devil’s Claw’s addition to the Auburn chiropractic treatment plan may improve the inflammation reduction you want to help you attain the pain reduction you desire.
