Manahawkin Chiropractic Center Treats Back Pain and Its Inflammatory Process

Red. Swollen. Hot. Painful. Signs of inflammation that no Manahawkin back pain patient desires. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center delivers chiropractic services to reduce back pain by identifying and dealing with any associated inflammation.

INFLAMMATION AND BACK PAIN RELATED

How can you tell if there’s inflammation? Like other issues, researchers look for a means to measure it. To measure inflammation, researchers try to find inflammatory biomarkers, biological markers like tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α), C-reactive protein (CRP), and interleukin-6, interleukin-1β, that exposed an increase. Researchers have discovered that chronic inflammation increased cytokine production and stimulated pro-inflammatory pathways that may lead to non-specific low back pain. (1) Researchers detected systemic inflammation in chronic LBP and may influence transition from acute to persistent low back pain. Particularly, CRP was found elevated in acute low back pain patients versus control patients. TNF was greater in back pain patients especially in patients with depression. (2) Since researchers have already verified that inflammation is tied to back pain, Manahawkin Chiropractic Center knows that inflammation must be reduced in order to help reduce Manahawkin back pain.

HOW TO STOP INFLAMMATION

Well, first, understand what inflammation does. Researchers applied lipopolysaccharide (LPS) to create intervertebral disc degeneration in trials. They set out to see what may help reduce the generated back pain that comes with it and/or even avoid the degeneration in the first place so we humans do not have to be subjected to low back pain at all! That is a tall order though, Manahawkin Chiropractic Center understands. But consider this: researchers utilized LPS to establish the degeneration that preceded low back pain. They discovered that procyanidin B3 (PRO-B3) found in our diets prevented the production of inflammatory markers - tumor necrosis factor α (TNF-Α), interleukin-6 (IL-6), prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) and nitric oxide – associated with disc degeneration. It also stopped the loss of the disc’s gelatin nucleus pulposus cells and structural damage of its anulus fibrosus (outer rings of disc). What does all this signify to researchers looking for a way to stop degenerative disc degeneration (DDD)? PRO-B3 may be looked at as a treatment agent for intervertebral disc degeneration (IVDD). This is a welcome note for those 80% of us adults who are on track to experience IVDD, a major cause of low back pain. (3) Another current paper explained that the p38 MAPK inflammatory pathway may be a way to delay DDD using the tyrosine kinase inhibitor, Genistein. (4) That is hopeful in the treatment of Manahawkin back pain and inflammation.

Vitamin D FOR INFLAMMATION

Research says that vitamin D deficiency is associated with low back pain that is stronger in younger women and in those with more severe deficiency. (5) Vitamin D deficiency is linked to lumbar disc disease and more severe low back pain in postmenopausal women. (6) Let’s talk about your vitamin D status at your next Manahawkin chiropractic appointment.
