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

The role of inflammation in Ottawa back pain is real. Chiropractic care can manage it. 

INFLAMMATION’S ROLE IN BACK AND NECK PAIN

It’s all (well, a lot) about inflammation! Ottawa back pain sufferers with acute or chronic pain have an imbalance 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 more present in back pain patients than the anti-inflammatory ones. And patients like you detect this discrepancy! They will mark their visual analog scale scores. (1)  Even more distinctively, the level of lumbar radicular (leg) pain disc herniation patients experience is recently linked to the level of inflammatory marker microRNA-17 found in their disc’s nucleus pulposus. MicroRNAs control neuroinflammatory processes like the one set off when a disc herniates. (2) Inflammation is a piece of the disc herniation event. The body’s inflammatory response to spine pain is real. Your Ottawa chiropractor knows this and helps lessen the inflammatory as well as mechanical factors affecting your Ottawa back pain, neck pain, leg pain and arm pain experience.  

Listen to this discussion on 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.  

 

Ottawa 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 healing activity, particularly its role in reducing 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 decreasing inflammation is not a one-pronged approach. The Devil’s Claw’s addition to the Ottawa chiropractic treatment plan may enhance the inflammation reduction you want to help you attain the pain reduction you desire.
