Severna Park Pain Relief with Green Tea

We need to bring back teatime, a quiet time in the middle of the day to drink a quiet cup of tea and escape from the bustle of life! (Your Severna Park chiropractor would appreciate such a time again!) Teatime was beneficial for the mind and spirit and very likely quite good for the body. Most days, we just don’t have time, but just drinking tea on the run in a reusable bottle on the way to your chiropractic appointment at Back And Neck Care Center can be beneficial, especially if it’s green tea.


In China, drinking tea is a traditional lifestyle factor. That’s a pretty good idea! In evaluating the health benefits of tea and its active ingredients for osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis – familiar bone and joint diseases affecting many people – researchers found that tea has potential anti-COX (cycolooxygenase) factors and hormone-like effects. They concluded that tea has an immense potential to be helpful in medicine and healthcare especially as the mechanisms of various tea properties are identified as to their synergistic mechanisms. (1) Tea from plants around us presents us a delicious way to be healthier and even less painful!


The more we acquire about what nature offers us through medicinal plants, the more we will want to thank nature! Green tea is a well-known beverage obtained from such medicinal plants. Green tea via lots of pharmacological activities and antinociceptive effects can be effective for pain relief due to its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Green tea is described as a safe and often effective treatment for pain management because if can suppress inflammation and oxidative stress. (2) Green tea’s major component, EGCG (epigallocatechin-3-gallate), is described in the published literature as valuable for its anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties. Research papers have published how green tea is good diseases like neurodegenerative and cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, cancer, and obesity. Green tea and its EGCG seem to restrain the expression of inflammatory cytokines and inflammation-linked enzymes. The use of green tea quite possibly improves the quality of life for inflammatory disease patients with no severe adverse side-effects. (3) Back pain and its associated spinal pain conditions like neck pain, arm pain, leg pain, etc., typically have inflammatory components with them, so adding green tea for its anti-inflammatory benefit may be an advantage.
