COGNITIVE DYSFUNCTION AND BACK PAIN Degenerative disc disease in the lumbar spine is an expanding concern globally as the world’s population grows older. Dementia has been linked to lumbar degenerative disc disease due to physical dysfunction, quality of life, and pain. Specifically, one study reported that 41% of patients with lumbar spinal stenosis experienced mild cognitive impairment. (1) Short, easy screening tests and questionnaires can efficiently find cognitive impairment. Once found, cognitive impairment may be challenged by interventions like cognitive stimulation and training, exercise, medications, and supplements which showed some good effects on patients’ physical and cognitive function though not curative. (2) Chiropractic plays a key role in back pain management. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc works to decrease the back pain with our Fort Wayne chiropractic treatment plan in hopes of reducing the cognitive dysfunction exacerbated by the stress of pain. BEE POLLEN FOR COGNITIVE DYSFUNCTION, ANXIETY Researchers explained chronic stress as a possible issue associated with anxiety, depression, and cognitive dysfunction. (Fort Wayne chiropractic patients know the stress that comes with back pain!) With bee pollen’s therapeutic effects known to be related to its powerful antioxidant quality, a study of Anatolian bee pollen’s effect on depression and anxiety found that it decreased anxiety-like behavior in the study’s rats. The researchers explained that the bee pollen decreased oxidative damage and neuroinflammation caused by immobilization stress. (3) That is a novel approach Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc has not heard of often! BEE POLLEN FOR COGNITIVE DYSFUNCTION Bee pollen’s use in public health goes back into old, old times. The important health and medicinal properties make it full of nutrition. Made of plant pollen and honeybee secretions and nectar, bee pollen contains bioactive compounds including proteins, amino acids, lipids, minerals, vitamins, polyphenols, and carbohydrates. Components of bee pollen are reported to enhance various bodily functions and protect against many diseases. (4) One such disease is cognitive dysfunction. A recent report describes the way by which bee pollen ameliorates cognitive impairment that is brought on by “cholinergic blockade.” How? It gets down to the cellular level which is a little complex and explainable by an alphabet soup of proteins like proBNDF, tPa, ERK-CREB, Akt-GSK-3. Bottomline: The researchers end up suggesting that bee pollen would be a valuable agent for managing cognitive dysfunction. (5) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc presents findings like this as spine pain, back pain, neck pain, etc., are complex conditions involving many factors which frequently call for just as many different approaches like spinal manipulation, nutrition, exercise, rest, etc.CONTACT Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc Listen to this PODCAST with Dr. Michael McMurray on The Back Doctors Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson as he illustrates The Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management incorporation to deal with lumbar spinal stenosis.
