Manahawkin Leg Pain and Memory Benefit from Curcumin

Back pain and Memory. Cognition and back pain. Is there a relationship? Ask any Manahawkin back pain sufferer who has had the pain for a while, and you will hear just how the mind and memory just don’t seem to work like normal when pain is in play. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center gets it. Back pain specialists like yours at Manahawkin Chiropractic Center understand this connection. Pain alters the brain and its memory function. Chiropractic care works to decrease the pain, and Manahawkin Chiropractic Center may propose some curcumin to foster the pain relief…and memory and cognition recovery.

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 deal with stress because of their chronic pain and non-pain-related issues which exacerbates their symptoms. It is a vicious cycle. These pain and stress feelings as well as emotions, learning, and memory are processed by the hippocampus. Neuropathic pain impacts the nervous system, and hippocampal neurogenesis, its growth and development of nervous tissue, is aggravated by stress. (1) To push back against this negative effect on the nervous system, researchers are studying nutrients like curcumin. Curcumin eased 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 acknowledged, so we will just do that (and be grateful that researchers understand the process!) instead of working to totally understand them ourselves. (2) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center treats many Manahawkin leg pain patients and their pain relief due to a compressed and irritated sciatic nerve. Curcumin may improve both memory and sciatica!

CURCUMIN FOR SCIATICA

There is convincing evidence that curcumin has an important part in the treatment of pathological pain due to sciatic nerve injury, neuropathy and the like. (3) Current drugs for acute pain (opioids, NSAIDs, acetaminophen and such) help but also have 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 found that nanocurcumin (a soluble form of curcumin) stopped pain-related behavior, reduced inflammatory markers and improved memory deficient and spatial learning in chronically constricted rats. (5) Curcumin may be suitable for your Manahawkin back pain condition, too. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center will explore this with you at your next Manahawkin chiropractic appointment.
