Malverne Health & Wellness Treats Back Pain and Its Inflammatory Process

Red. Swollen. Hot. Painful. Signs of inflammation that no Malverne back pain patient wants to suffer. Malverne Health & Wellness delivers chiropractic services to decrease back pain by identifying and addressing any related inflammation.

INFLAMMATION AND BACK PAIN RELATED

How can you deduce if there’s inflammation? Like other issues, researchers search for ways to measure it. To measure inflammation, researchers look for inflammatory biomarkers, biological markers like tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α), C-reactive protein (CRP), and interleukin-6, interleukin-1β, that exposed an increase. Researchers have discovered that chronic inflammation raised cytokine production and triggered pro-inflammatory pathways that may cause non-specific low back pain. (1) Researchers observed systemic inflammation in chronic LBP and may influence transition from acute to persistent low back pain. Specifically, CRP was discovered to be elevated in acute low back pain patients versus control patients. TNF was higher in back pain patients particularly in patients with depression. (2) Since researchers have already verified that inflammation is tied to back pain, Malverne Health & Wellness realizes that inflammation must be reduced in order to help reduce Malverne back pain.

HOW TO STOP INFLAMMATION

Well, first, understand what inflammation does. Researchers used lipopolysaccharide (LPS) to simulate intervertebral disc degeneration in trials. They set out to see what may potentially decrease the produced back pain that comes with it and/or even avoid the degeneration in the first place so we humans do not have to be subjected to low back pain at all! That is a tough call though, Malverne Health & Wellness understands. But follow this: researchers utilized LPS to create the degeneration that led to low back pain. They discovered that procyanidin B3 (PRO-B3) seen in our diets prevented the production of inflammatory markers - tumor necrosis factor α (TNF-Α), interleukin-6 (IL-6), prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) and nitric oxide – linked to disc degeneration. It also stopped the loss of the disc’s gelatinous nucleus pulposus cells and structural damage of its anulus fibrosus (outer rings of disc). What’s all this signify to researchers seeking a way to stop degenerative disc degeneration (DDD)? PRO-B3 may be considered as a treatment agent for intervertebral disc degeneration (IVDD). This is a welcome bit of information for those 80% of us adults who are likely to have IVDD, a major cause of low back pain. (3) Another current paper described that the p38 MAPK inflammatory pathway may be able to delay DDD utilizing the tyrosine kinase inhibitor, Genistein. (4) That’s encouraging for the treatment of Malverne back pain and inflammation.

Vitamin D FOR INFLAMMATION

Research states that vitamin D deficiency is linked with low back pain that is stronger in younger women and in those with more severe deficiency. (5) Vitamin D deficiency is linked to lumbar disc disease and more severe low back pain in postmenopausal women. (6) Let’s talk about your vitamin D status at your next Malverne chiropractic appointment.
