San Jose Leg Pain and Memory Benefit from Curcumin

Memory and back pain. Cognition and back pain. Is there a relationship? Ask any San Jose back pain sufferer who’s had the pain for some time, and you will hear just how the mind and memory just don’t seem to function like normal when pain is in play. Chiropractic Solutions gets it. Back pain specialists like yours at Chiropractic Solutions understand this connection. Pain disturbs the brain and its memory function. Chiropractic care works to decrease the pain, and Chiropractic Solutions may propose some curcumin to foster the pain relief…and memory and cognition recovery.

CURCUMIN FOR MEMORY ISSUES

Chronic pain sufferers know that their pain influences 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 worsens their symptoms. It’s a nasty 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 aggravated by stress. (1) To combat this negative effect on the nervous system, researchers are looking to nutrients like curcumin. Curcumin decreased chronic pain and enhanced cognitive impairment and memory deficit linked to long-term sciatic nerve constriction. Researchers describe how 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 understand them ourselves. (2) Chiropractic Solutions treats many San Jose leg pain patients and their pain relief due to a compressed and irritated sciatic nerve. Curcumin may improve 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 have a potential for abuse. This persuaded a few researchers to study curcumin more. 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) ended pain-related behavior, reduced inflammatory markers and improved memory deficient and spatial learning in chronically constricted rats. (5) Curcumin may be applicable for your San Jose back pain condition, too. Chiropractic Solutions will explore this with you at your next San Jose chiropractic appointment.
