Auburn Leg Pain and Memory Benefit from Curcumin

Memory and back pain. Back pain and cognition. Is there a link? Ask any Auburn back pain sufferer who’s had the pain for a while, and you will hear just how the mind and memory just do not seem to function like normal when pain is in play. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. understands. Back pain specialists like yours at Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. understand this connection. Pain disturbs the brain and its memory function. Chiropractic care works to decrease the pain, and Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. may propose some curcumin to aid in the pain relief…and memory and cognition improvement.


Chronic pain sufferers know that their pain influences their quality of life. It slows them down. It holds them back. They also experience stress because of their chronic pain and non-pain-related issues which worsens their symptoms. It’s a vicious cycle. These pain and stress feelings alongside emotions, learning, and memory are managed by the hippocampus. Neuropathic pain impacts 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 enhanced cognitive impairment and memory deficit associated with long-term sciatic nerve constriction. Researchers explain that hippocampal neurogenesis and synaptic plasticity improvements may be acknowledged, so we will just thank them (and be grateful that researchers understand the process!) instead of working to fully get them ourselves. (2) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. treats many Auburn leg pain patients and their pain relief due to a compressed and irritated sciatic nerve. Curcumin may improve both memory and sciatica!


There is compelling evidence that curcumin plays an important part in the treatment of pathological pain stemming from sciatic nerve injury, neuropathy and such. (3) Current drugs for acute pain (opioids, NSAIDs, acetaminophen and such) help but come with side-effects (renal, liver, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal) and have a potential for abuse. This stimulated a few researchers to look at curcumin more closely. Curcumin is reported to have anti-inflammatory and analgesic pain-reducing effects…without the side-effects. (4) Other researchers discovered that nanocurcumin (a soluble form of curcumin) ended pain-related behavior, reduced inflammatory markers and enhanced memory deficient and spatial learning in chronically constricted rats. (5) Curcumin may be appropriate for your Auburn back pain condition, too. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. will explore this with you at your next Auburn chiropractic visit.
