McHenry Leg Pain and Memory Benefit from Curcumin

Back pain and Memory. Back pain and cognition. Is there a link? Ask any McHenry 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 work like normal when pain is on the mind. Spengel Chiropractic gets it. Back pain specialists like yours at Spengel Chiropractic understand this connection. Pain alters the brain and its memory function. Chiropractic care works to decrease the pain, and Spengel Chiropractic may propose some curcumin to foster the pain relief…and memory and cognition improvement.

CURCUMIN FOR MEMORY ISSUES

Chronic pain sufferers know that their pain influences 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 vicious cycle. These pain and stress feelings alongside emotions, learning, and memory are managed by the hippocampus. Neuropathic pain impacts the nervous system, and hippocampal neurogenesis, its growth and development of nervous tissue, is exacerbated by stress. (1) To fight this negative effect on the nervous system, researchers are researching nutrients like curcumin. Curcumin eased chronic pain and enhanced 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 know the process!) instead of working to totally get them ourselves. (2) Spengel Chiropractic treats many McHenry 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 compelling evidence that curcumin plays an important part in the treatment of pathological pain stemming from sciatic nerve injury, neuropathy and the like. (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 a few researchers to study curcumin more. Curcumin is said to have anti-inflammatory and analgesic pain-reducing effects…without the side-effects. (4) Other researchers found that nanocurcumin (a soluble form of curcumin) stopped pain-related behavior, decreased inflammatory markers and improved memory deficient and spatial learning in chronically constricted rats. (5) Curcumin may be applicable for your McHenry back pain condition, too. Spengel Chiropractic will delve into this with you at your next McHenry chiropractic visit.
