Burlington and Hamilton Leg Pain and Memory Benefit from Curcumin

Back pain and Memory. Cognition and back pain. Is there a relationship? Ask any Burlington and Hamilton back pain sufferer who has had the pain for a while, and you will hear just how the mind and memory just don’t seem to function like normal when pain is on the mind. Spinal Care Clinic gets it. Back pain specialists like yours at Spinal Care Clinic understand this connection. Pain alters the brain and its memory function. Chiropractic care works to reduce the pain, and Spinal Care Clinic may suggest some curcumin to foster the pain relief…and memory and cognition improvement.

CURCUMIN FOR MEMORY ISSUES

Chronic pain sufferers recognize that their pain affects their quality of life. It slows them down. It holds them back. They also experience stress due to their chronic pain and non-pain-related problems which aggravates their symptoms. It’s a vicious cycle. These pain and stress feelings as well as emotions, learning, and memory are processed 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 studying nutrients like curcumin. Curcumin reduced 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 do that (and be grateful that researchers understand the process!) instead of working to fully get them ourselves. (2) Spinal Care Clinic cares for many Burlington and Hamilton leg pain patients and their pain relief from a compressed and irritated sciatic nerve. Curcumin may help both memory and sciatica!

CURCUMIN FOR SCIATICA

There is convincing 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 prompted some researchers to study curcumin more. Curcumin is reported to have anti-inflammatory and analgesic pain-reducing effects…without the side-effects. (4) Other researchers discovered that nanocurcumin (a soluble form of curcumin) prevented pain-related behavior, reduced inflammatory markers and enhanced memory deficient and spatial learning in chronically constricted rats. (5) Curcumin may be appropriate for your Burlington and Hamilton back pain condition, too. Spinal Care Clinic will delve into this with you at your next Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic appointment.
