Natural Pain Relieving Herbs Help McHenry Pain Patients

“As treatments in medicine become more and more complex, the answer may be something simpler.” (1)

Wow. Simpler just may be an answer when it comes to pain relief for some McHenry back pain sufferers. Chronic pain is one condition that necessitates some relief. (Listen in to a PODCAST with a doctor and his patient about chronic pain and how chiropractic helps.) Natural substances may offer a simpler approach for some McHenry chronic pain, back pain, neck pain, arm pain and leg pain sufferers. OrthoIllinois Chiropractic is ready to help McHenry chiropractic care patients investigate if this may be feasible for them.


Curcumin is possibly one natural treatment that many McHenry pain patients have heard about in the news. As a natural anti-inflammatory, pain-relieving herb, it is shown to be quite helpful in for treating chronic pain conditions like rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, and cancers like colon, stomach, lung, breast and skin. Even Alzheimer’s patients obtain some relief with curcumin. (1) Osteoarthritis patients reportedly respond well to curcumin, too, since osteoarthritis is a chronic inflammatory degenerative process that OrthoIllinois Chiropractic sees often in McHenry chiropractic practice.

Herbs like Urtica dioica (stinging nettle), Boswellia serrata (frankincense), Equisetum arvense (horsetail), Allium sativum (garlic), and Apium graveolens (celery and marshworts) are reported to be anti-inflammatory and analgesic for pain patients including patients dealing with chronic musculoskeletal pain which OrthoIllinois Chiropractic sees a lot! They decrease pain and improve mobility for chronic pain patients. One study mixed all of these plus vitamin B1 and found that patients responded well. (3) Another report shares that fish oil, curcumin, white willow bark, boswellia serrata, green tea, maritime pine bark, Resveratrol, cat’s claw, and Capsaicin are other anti-inflammatory natural agents assist in reducing inflammation and pain. (4) OrthoIllinois Chiropractic investigates with McHenry chiropractic patients to find just the right mix of natural agents like these that are effective for them and their McHenry pain.


Some McHenry pain patients and McHenry inflammatory disease patients know that traditional medicines may upset their systems with undesirable side effects. Centuries-old natural approaches may be simpler, effective, and less upsetting. If you are a McHenry pain patient seeking a simpler way to deal with pain, schedule an appointment with OrthoIllinois Chiropractic to explore how natural anti-inflammatory agents - even in combination with McHenry chiropractic care - may be pain relieving for you.
