Malverne Leg Pain and Memory Benefit from Curcumin

Back pain and Memory. Back pain and cognition. Is there a relationship? Ask any Malverne back pain sufferer who’s had the pain for some time, and you will hear just how the mind and memory just do not seem to function like normal when pain is on the mind. Malverne Health & Wellness understands. Back pain specialists like yours at Malverne Health & Wellness understand this connection. Pain alters the brain and its memory function. Chiropractic care works to reduce the pain, and Malverne Health & Wellness may suggest some curcumin to foster the pain relief…and memory and cognition improvement.

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 have stress due to their chronic pain and non-pain-related issues which worsens their symptoms. It’s a vicious cycle. These pain and stress feelings alongside emotions, learning, and memory are processed by the hippocampus. Neuropathic pain affects 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 decreased chronic pain and improved cognitive impairment and memory deficit linked to long-term sciatic nerve constriction. Researchers describe how hippocampal neurogenesis and synaptic plasticity improvements may be thanked, so we will just do that (and be grateful that researchers understand the process!) instead of working to totally understand them ourselves. (2) Malverne Health & Wellness cares for many Malverne 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 has 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 also have side-effects (renal, liver, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal) and have a potential for abuse. This persuaded a few researchers to look at curcumin more closely. 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) stopped pain-related behavior, decreased inflammatory markers and enhanced memory deficient and spatial learning in chronically constricted rats. (5) Curcumin may be appropriate for your Malverne back pain condition, too. Malverne Health & Wellness will delve into this with you at your next Malverne chiropractic appointment.
