Colorado Springs Leg Pain and Memory Benefit from Curcumin

Memory and back pain. Cognition and back pain. Is there a link? Ask any Colorado Springs back pain sufferer who has had the pain for some time, and you will hear just how the mind and memory just don’t seem to function like normal when pain is in play. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR gets it. Back pain specialists like yours at The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR understand this connection. Pain affects the brain and its memory function. Chiropractic care works to decrease the pain, and The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR may suggest some curcumin to foster the pain relief…and memory and cognition improvement.

CURCUMIN FOR MEMORY ISSUES

Chronic pain sufferers recognize that their pain influences their quality of life. It slows them down. It holds them back. They also have stress due to their chronic pain and non-pain-related problems which worsens their symptoms. It is a nasty 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 exacerbated by stress. (1) To push back against this negative effect on the nervous system, researchers are studying nutrients like curcumin. Curcumin decreased chronic pain and improved cognitive impairment and memory deficit associated with long-term sciatic nerve constriction. Researchers explain that hippocampal neurogenesis and synaptic plasticity improvements may be thanked, so we’ll just thank them (and be grateful that researchers understand the process!) instead of working to fully get them ourselves. (2) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR cares for many Colorado Springs leg pain patients and their pain relief due to a compressed and irritated sciatic nerve. Curcumin may help both memory and sciatica!

CURCUMIN FOR SCIATICA

There is convincing evidence that curcumin has an important role 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 study curcumin more. 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) prevented pain-related behavior, decreased inflammatory markers and improved memory deficient and spatial learning in chronically constricted rats. (5) Curcumin may be suitable for your Colorado Springs back pain condition, too. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR will delve into this with you at your next Colorado Springs chiropractic visit.
