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

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

INFLAMMATION’S ROLE IN BACK AND NECK PAIN

It’s all (well, a lot) about inflammation! In Colorado Springs 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 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 set off when a disc herniates. (2) Inflammation is a part of the disc herniation occurrence. The inflammatory response of the body to spine pain is real. Your Colorado Springs chiropractor knows this and helps diminish the inflammatory as well as mechanical issues affecting your Colorado Springs back pain, neck pain, leg pain and arm pain experience.  

Listen to this discussion about 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.  

 

Colorado Springs 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 a variety of ailments. The harpagoside compound of Devil’s Claw is noted for its healing activity, particularly its role in decreasing inflammation. (3) Osteoarthritis responds well to it. In new research, Devil’s Claw reportedly inhibited 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 knows that reducing inflammation is not a one-pronged approach. The addition of Devil’s Claw to the Colorado Springs chiropractic treatment plan may increase the inflammation reduction you want to help you attain the pain reduction you desire.
