Fort Wayne Pain Relief with Green Tea

We need to bring back teatime, that quiet time in the middle of the afternoon to drink a quiet cup of tea away from the bustle of life! (Your Fort Wayne chiropractor would enjoy such a time again!) Teatime was beneficial for the mind and spirit and most likely very good for the body. Today, most of us just do not have time, but just drinking tea on the run in an insulated mug on the commute to your chiropractic appointment at Aaron Chiropractic Clinic can be beneficial, particularly if that tea is green.


In China, drinking tea is a traditional lifestyle factor. That’s a pretty good idea! In assessing the health benefits of tea and its active ingredients for osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis – familiar bone and joint diseases affecting many people – researchers found that tea offers potential anti-COX (cycolooxygenase) factors and hormone-like effects. They determined that tea has a vast potential to be helpful in medicine and healthcare especially as the mechanisms of the different types of tea properties are defined as to their synergistic mechanisms. (1) Tea from plants around us presents us a tasty way to be healthier and even less painful!


The more we learn about what nature offers us through medicinal plants, the more we must appreciate nature! Green tea is a well-known beverage obtained from such medicinal plants. Green tea via a multitude of pharmacological activities and antinociceptive effects are proposed to be effective for pain relief because of its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Green tea is described as a safe and often effective treatment for pain management due to its suppression of inflammation and oxidative stress. (2) Green tea’s major component, EGCG (epigallocatechin-3-gallate), has shown itself to be a valuable anti-inflammatory factor as well as anti-oxidant. Research papers have reported how green tea helps diseases like neurodegenerative and cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, cancer, and obesity. Green tea and its EGCG seem to restrain the expression of inflammatory cytokines and inflammation-linked enzymes. The use of green tea potentially enhances the quality of life for inflammatory disease patients with no severe adverse side-effects. (3) Back pain and its related spinal pain conditions like neck pain, arm pain, leg pain, etc., typically have inflammatory components with them, so increasing consumption of green tea for its anti-inflammatory benefit may be a plus.
