Vancouver Leg Pain and Memory Benefit from Curcumin

Back pain and Memory. Cognition and back pain. Is there a link? Ask any Vancouver 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 work like normal when pain is in play. Vancouver Disc Centers gets it. Back pain specialists like yours at Vancouver Disc Centers understand this connection. Pain affects the brain and its memory function. Chiropractic care works to decrease the pain, and Vancouver Disc Centers may propose some curcumin to aid in 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 worsens their symptoms. It is 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 looking to nutrients like curcumin. Curcumin reduced chronic pain and enhanced cognitive impairment and memory deficit linked to long-term sciatic nerve constriction. Researchers explain that hippocampal neurogenesis and synaptic plasticity improvements may be acknowledged, so we will just thank them (and be grateful that researchers understand the process!) instead of working to fully get them ourselves. (2) Vancouver Disc Centers cares for many Vancouver 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 role in the treatment of pathological pain stemming from sciatic nerve injury, neuropathy and such. (3) Current drugs for acute pain (opioids, NSAIDs, acetaminophen and such) help but also have side-effects (renal, liver, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal) and hold a potential for abuse. This persuaded a few 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) stopped pain-related behavior, reduced inflammatory markers and improved memory deficient and spatial learning in chronically constricted rats. (5) Curcumin may be applicable for your Vancouver back pain condition, too. Vancouver Disc Centers will delve into this with you at your next Vancouver chiropractic appointment.
