Back And Neck Care Center Treats Back Pain and Its Inflammatory Process

Red. Swollen. Hot. Painful. Signs of inflammation that no Severna Park back pain patient desires. Back And Neck Care Center delivers chiropractic services to decrease back pain by identifying and dealing with any associated inflammation.

INFLAMMATION AND BACK PAIN RELATED

How can you deduce if there is inflammation? Like other issues, researchers search for ways 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 showed an increase. Researchers have discovered that chronic inflammation raised cytokine production and activated 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. Specifically, CRP was discovered to be elevated in acute low back pain patients and not in control patients. TNF was higher in back pain patients especially in patients with depression. (2) Since researchers have already recorded that inflammation is tied to back pain, Back And Neck Care Center realizes that inflammation must be decreased in order to help reduce Severna Park back pain.

HOW TO STOP INFLAMMATION

Well, first, understand what inflammation does. Researchers made use of lipopolysaccharide (LPS) to create intervertebral disc degeneration in trials. They set out to figure out what may help reduce the produced back pain that accompanies it and/or even prevent the degeneration in the first place so we humans do not have to experience low back pain at all! That is a tough call though, Back And Neck Care Center understands. But follow this: researchers utilized LPS to create the degeneration that led to low back pain. They found that procyanidin B3 (PRO-B3) found in our diets inhibited 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 gelatinous nucleus pulposus cells and structural damage of its anulus fibrosus (outer rings of disc). What’s all this mean to researchers looking for a way to prevent degenerative disc degeneration (DDD)? PRO-B3 may be looked at as a treatment agent for intervertebral disc degeneration (IVDD). This is a welcome bit of information for those 80% of us adults who are on track to have IVDD, a major cause of low back pain. (3) Another current paper explained that the p38 MAPK inflammatory pathway may be a way to postpone DDD using the tyrosine kinase inhibitor, Genistein. (4) That is hopeful in the treatment of Severna Park back pain and inflammation.

Vitamin D FOR INFLAMMATION

Research states that vitamin D deficiency is linked with low back pain that is stronger in younger women and in those with more severe deficiency. (5) Vitamin D deficiency is connected to lumbar disc disease and more severe low back pain in postmenopausal women. (6) Let us talk about your vitamin D status at your next Severna Park chiropractic appointment.
