Tonawanda Leg Pain and Memory Benefit from Curcumin

Memory and back pain. Back pain and cognition. Is there a link? Ask any Tonawanda back pain sufferer who has had the pain for a while, and you will hear just how the mind and memory just do not seem to function like normal when pain is in play. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation understands. Back pain specialists like yours at Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation understand this connection. Pain alters the brain and its memory function. Chiropractic care works to decrease the pain, and Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation may propose some curcumin to foster the pain relief…and memory and cognition improvement.

CURCUMIN FOR MEMORY ISSUES

Chronic pain sufferers recognize that their pain affects their quality of life. It slows them down. It holds them back. They also have stress because of their chronic pain and non-pain-related issues which exacerbates their symptoms. It’s a nasty cycle. These pain and stress feelings alongside emotions, learning, and memory are processed by the hippocampus. Neuropathic pain affects 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 looking to nutrients like curcumin. Curcumin reduced chronic pain and improved cognitive impairment and memory deficit linked to long-term sciatic nerve constriction. Researchers explain that hippocampal neurogenesis and synaptic plasticity improvements may be acknowledged, so we’ll just thank them (and be grateful that researchers understand the process!) instead of working to fully understand them ourselves. (2) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation cares for many Tonawanda 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 plays an important role in the treatment of pathological pain due to sciatic nerve injury, neuropathy and such. (3) Current drugs for acute pain (opioids, NSAIDs, acetaminophen and such) help but come with side-effects (renal, liver, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal) and hold a potential for abuse. This stimulated some researchers to study curcumin more. Curcumin is reported to have anti-inflammatory and analgesic pain-reducing effects…without the side-effects. (4) Other researchers discovered 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 appropriate for your Tonawanda back pain condition, too. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation will delve into this with you at your next Tonawanda chiropractic appointment.
