INFLAMMATION’S ROLE IN BACK AND NECK PAIN
It’s all (well, a lot) about inflammation! Severna Park
back pain sufferers who have 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 prevail.
They will be greater in back pain patients than the
anti-inflammatory ones. And patients like you notice this discrepancy!
They will have higher visual analog
scale scores for pain. (1) Even more specifically,
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
modulate neuroinflammatory processes like the one begun when a disc herniates. (2) Inflammation is a piece of the
disc herniation event. The inflammatory
response of the body to spine pain is real. Your Severna Park chiropractor
recognizes this and helps diminish the inflammatory
as well as mechanical issues influencing your Severna Park
back pain, neck pain, leg pain and arm pain experience.

disc 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.
Severna Park CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:
Devil’s Claw for Inflammation
Devil’s Claw helps decrease inflammation! Traditional
medicine has used it for many years for all types of ailments. The
harpagoside compound of Devil’s Claw is known for its beneficial
activity, particularly its role in reducing
inflammation. (3) Osteoarthritis responds 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 getting
rid of inflammation is not a one-pronged approach. The Devil’s Claw’s addition to
the Severna Park chiropractic treatment plan may increase
the inflammation reduction you want to get you to the
pain reduction you desire.
