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

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

INFLAMMATION’S ROLE IN BACK AND NECK PAIN

It is all (well, a lot) about inflammation! In Fort Wayne 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 see this discrepancy! They will mark their visual analog scale scores. (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 found in their disc’s nucleus pulposus. MicroRNAs control neuroinflammatory processes like the one begun 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 Fort Wayne chiropractor recognizes this and helps lessen the inflammatory as well as mechanical issues affecting your Fort Wayne back pain, neck pain, leg pain and arm pain experience.  

Listen to this discussion about care of the disc herniation 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.  

 

Fort Wayne 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 noted for its therapeutic activity, particularly its role in decreasing inflammation. (3) Osteoarthritis responds well to it. In new research, Devil’s Claw reportedly hampered 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 reduced inflammation. (4) Your chiropractor is well aware that reducing inflammation is not a one-pronged approach. Adding Devil’s Claw to the Fort Wayne chiropractic treatment plan may increase the inflammation reduction you want to help you attain the pain reduction you desire.
