INFLAMMATION AND BACK PAIN RELATED

How can you tell if there is inflammation? Like other issues, researchers look for a means to measure it. To measure inflammation, researchers try to find inflammatory biomarkers, biological markers like tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α), C-reactive protein (CRP), and interleukin-6, interleukin-1β, that revealed an increase. Researchers have uncovered that chronic inflammation increased cytokine production and stimulated pro-inflammatory pathways that may bring about non-specific low back pain. (1) Researchers detected systemic inflammation in chronic LBP and may affect 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 greater in back pain patients particularly in patients with depression. (2) Since researchers have already recorded that inflammation is linked to back pain, Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries knows that inflammation must be reduced to help in reducing Manchester back pain.

HOW TO STOP INFLAMMATION

Well, first, understand what inflammation does. Researchers applied lipopolysaccharide (LPS) to create intervertebral disc degeneration in experiments. They set out to see what may potentially decrease the produced back pain that comes with it and/or even avoid the degeneration initially so we humans do not have to suffer low back pain at all! That is a tough call though, Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries understands. But consider this: researchers used LPS to create the degeneration that led to low back pain. They found that procyanidin B3 (PRO-B3) seen in our diets blocked the production of inflammatory markers - tumor necrosis factor α (TNF-Α), interleukin-6 (IL-6), prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) and nitric oxide – associated with 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 indicate to researchers seeking a way to prevent degenerative disc degeneration (DDD)? PRO-B3 may be looked at as a treatment agent for intervertebral disc degeneration (IVDD). This is a welcome note for those 80% of us adults who are on track to experience IVDD, a major cause of low back pain. (3) Another current paper explained that the p38 MAPK inflammatory pathway may be able to delay DDD utilizing the tyrosine kinase inhibitor, Genistein. (4) That is hopeful in the treatment of Manchester back pain and inflammation.

Vitamin D FOR INFLAMMATION

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