Fort Wayne Pain Relief with Green Tea

April 04, 2024

We need to bring back teatime, a quiet time in the middle of the day to experience a quiet cup of tea and escape from the bustle of life! (Your Fort Wayne chiropractor would appreciate such a break again!) Teatime was beneficial for the mind and spirit and very likely quite good for the body. Most days, we just don’t have time, but just enjoying tea on the run in a reusable bottle on the way to your chiropractic appointment at Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc can be beneficial, especially if that tea is green.


In China, drinking tea is a traditional lifestyle factor. That’s a pretty good idea! In assessing the health benefits of tea and its active ingredients for osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis – common bone and joint diseases affecting many people – researchers found that tea has potential anti-COX (cycolooxygenase) factors and hormone-like effects. They determined that tea has a great potential to be helpful in medicine and healthcare especially as the mechanisms of various tea properties are identified as to their synergistic mechanisms. (1) Tea from plants around us offers us a flavorsome way to be healthier and even less painful!


The more we learn about what nature has for us through medicinal plants, the more we will want to thank nature! Green tea is a well-known beverage obtained from such medicinal plants. Green tea via several pharmacological activities and antinociceptive effects are proposed to be effective for pain relief because of its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Green tea is explained to be a safe and often effective treatment for pain management owing to its suppression of inflammation and oxidative stress. (2) Green tea’s major component, EGCG (epigallocatechin-3-gallate), has shown itself to be a valuable anti-inflammatory factor as well as anti-oxidant. Research papers have published how green tea is good diseases like obesity, cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and neurodegenerative diseases. Green tea and its EGCG seem to restrain the expression of inflammatory cytokines and inflammation-linked enzymes. The use of green tea potentially enhances the quality of life for inflammatory disease patients with no severe adverse side-effects. (3) Back pain and its associated spinal pain conditions like leg, arm, and neck pain, etc., typically have inflammatory components with them, so adding green tea for its anti-inflammatory benefit may be a plus.
