Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. Treats Back Pain and Its Inflammatory Process

Red. Swollen. Hot. Painful. Signs of inflammation that no Auburn back pain patient desires. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. delivers chiropractic services to reduce back pain by recognizing and addressing any related inflammation.

INFLAMMATION AND BACK PAIN RELATED

How can you deduce if there’s inflammation? Like anything else, researchers look for a means to measure it. To measure inflammation, researchers try to find inflammatory biomarkers, biological markers like tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α), C-reactive protein (CRP), and interleukin-6, interleukin-1β, that showed an increase. Researchers have discovered that chronic inflammation raised cytokine production and activated pro-inflammatory pathways that may bring about non-specific low back pain. (1) Researchers observed systemic inflammation in chronic LBP and may influence transition from acute to persistent low back pain. Particularly, CRP was found elevated in acute low back pain patients and not in control patients. TNF was higher in back pain patients especially in patients with depression. (2) Since researchers have already verified that inflammation is linked to back pain, Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. knows that inflammation must be decreased to help in reducing Auburn back pain.

HOW TO STOP INFLAMMATION

Well, first, know what inflammation does. Researchers used lipopolysaccharide (LPS) to create intervertebral disc degeneration in experiments. They set out to see what might potentially reduce the generated back pain that accompanies it and/or even prevent the degeneration initially so we humans do not have to be subjected to low back pain at all! That’s a tall order though, Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. understands. But follow this: researchers utilized LPS to establish the degeneration that led to low back pain. They discovered that procyanidin B3 (PRO-B3) seen in our diets prevented the production of inflammatory markers - tumor necrosis factor α (TNF-Α), interleukin-6 (IL-6), prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) and nitric oxide – associated with disc degeneration. It also prevented the loss of the disc’s gelatinous nucleus pulposus cells and structural damage of its anulus fibrosus (outer rings of disc). What does all this signify to researchers looking for a way to prevent degenerative disc degeneration (DDD)? PRO-B3 may be considered as a treatment agent for intervertebral disc degeneration (IVDD). This is a welcome bit of information for those 80% of us adults who are likely to get IVDD, a major cause of low back pain. (3) Another recent paper explained that the p38 MAPK inflammatory pathway may be a way to defer DDD utilizing the tyrosine kinase inhibitor, Genistein. (4) That’s hopeful in the treatment of Auburn back pain and inflammation.

Vitamin D FOR INFLAMMATION

Research states that vitamin D deficiency is linked with low back pain that is stronger in younger women and in those with more severe deficiency. (5) Vitamin D deficiency is linked to lumbar disc disease and more severe low back pain in postmenopausal women. (6) Let us talk about your vitamin D intake at your next Auburn chiropractic appointment.
