Baton Rouge Leg Pain and Memory Benefit from Curcumin

Back pain and Memory. Cognition and back pain. Is there a relationship? Ask any Baton Rouge back pain sufferer who has had the pain for a while, and you will hear just how the mind and memory just do not seem to function like normal when pain is on the mind. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation understands. Back pain specialists like yours at Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation understand this connection. Pain disturbs the brain and its memory function. Chiropractic care works to reduce the pain, and Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation may propose some curcumin to foster the pain relief…and memory and cognition recovery.

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 have stress because of their chronic pain and non-pain-related problems which aggravates their symptoms. It is a vicious cycle. These pain and stress feelings alongside emotions, learning, and memory are managed by the hippocampus. Neuropathic pain affects the nervous system, and hippocampal neurogenesis, its growth and development of nervous tissue, is aggravated by stress. (1) To fight this negative effect on the nervous system, researchers are researching nutrients like curcumin. Curcumin eased chronic pain and enhanced cognitive impairment and memory deficit associated with long-term sciatic nerve constriction. Researchers explain that hippocampal neurogenesis and synaptic plasticity improvements may be acknowledged, so we’ll just thank them (and be grateful that researchers know the process!) instead of working to fully get them ourselves. (2) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation cares for many Baton Rouge leg pain patients and their pain relief due to a compressed and irritated sciatic nerve. Curcumin may help both memory and sciatica!

CURCUMIN FOR SCIATICA

There is compelling evidence that curcumin plays an important role 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 hold a potential for abuse. This stimulated a few researchers to look at curcumin more closely. 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) ended pain-related behavior, decreased inflammatory markers and improved memory deficient and spatial learning in chronically constricted rats. (5) Curcumin may be appropriate for your Baton Rouge back pain condition, too. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation will delve into this with you at your next Baton Rouge chiropractic visit.
