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

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

INFLAMMATION’S ROLE IN BACK AND NECK PAIN

It is all (well, a lot) about inflammation! Manahawkin 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) components. The pro-inflammatory mediators prevail. 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 distinctively, 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 modulate neuroinflammatory processes like the one set off when a disc herniates. (2) Inflammation is a part of the disc herniation event. The body’s inflammatory response to spine pain is real. Your Manahawkin chiropractor recognizes this and helps reduce the inflammatory as well as mechanical factors influencing your Manahawkin 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.  

 

Manahawkin 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 all types of ailments. The harpagoside compound of Devil’s Claw is noted for its healing activity, particularly its role in reducing inflammation. (3) Osteoarthritis reacts well to it. In new research, Devil’s Claw reportedly deterred 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 decreased inflammation. (4) Your chiropractor knows that decreasing inflammation is not a one-pronged approach. The addition of Devil’s Claw to the Manahawkin chiropractic treatment plan may enhance the inflammation reduction you want to get you to the pain reduction you desire.
