Fort Wayne Leg Pain and Memory Benefit from Curcumin06/08/2021Memory and back pain. Cognition and back pain. Is there a link? Ask any Fort Wayne back pain sufferer who has had the pain for some time, and you will hear just how the mind and memory just do not seem to work like normal when pain is on the mind. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc gets it. Back pain specialists like yours at Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc understand this connection. Pain alters the brain and its memory function. Chiropractic care works to decrease the pain, and Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc may suggest some curcumin to aid in the pain relief…and memory and cognition recovery. CURCUMIN FOR MEMORY ISSUES Chronic pain sufferers know that their pain affects their quality of life. It slows them down. It holds them back. They also deal with stress due to their chronic pain and non-pain-related problems which worsens their symptoms. It’s a vicious cycle. These pain and stress feelings as well as 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 combat this negative effect on the nervous system, researchers are researching nutrients like curcumin. Curcumin decreased chronic pain and enhanced cognitive impairment and memory deficit associated with long-term sciatic nerve constriction. Researchers describe how 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 totally get them ourselves. (2) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc treats many Fort Wayne 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 part in the treatment of pathological pain due to 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 have a potential for abuse. This stimulated some researchers to study curcumin more. Curcumin is said to have anti-inflammatory and analgesic pain-reducing effects…without the side-effects. (4) Other researchers discovered that nanocurcumin (a soluble form of curcumin) ended pain-related behavior, decreased inflammatory markers and enhanced memory deficient and spatial learning in chronically constricted rats. (5) Curcumin may be suitable for your Fort Wayne back pain condition, too. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc will explore this with you at your next Fort Wayne chiropractic visit.
