Manchester Pain Relief with Green Tea

We need to bring back teatime, a quiet time in the middle of the afternoon to experience a quiet cup of tea away from the bustle of life! (Your Manchester chiropractor would enjoy such a break again!) Teatime was valuable for the mind and spirit and most likely very good for the body. Most days, most of us just can’t imagine that we have time, but just drinking tea on the run in an insulated mug on the commute to your chiropractic appointment at Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries can be beneficial, particularly if it’s green tea.


In China, drinking tea is part of daily life. Not a bad thing! In evaluating the health benefits of tea and its active ingredients for osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis – familiar bone and joint diseases bothering many people – researchers found that tea offers potential anti-COX (cycolooxygenase) factors and hormone-like effects. They determined that tea has a great potential to be helpful in medicine and healthcare especially as the mechanisms of the different types of tea properties are defined as to their synergistic mechanisms. (1) Tea from plants around us offers us a flavorsome way to be healthier and even a bit painfree!


The more we acquire about what nature offers us through medicinal plants, the more we will want to thank nature! Green tea is a common beverage obtained from such medicinal plants. Green tea via a multitude of pharmacological activities and antinociceptive effects are proposed to be effective for pain relief because of its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Green tea is explained to be a safe and often effective treatment for pain management due to its suppression of inflammation and oxidative stress. (2) Green tea’s major component, EGCG (epigallocatechin-3-gallate), has shown itself to be valuable for its anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties. Research papers have explained how green tea is good diseases like neurodegenerative and cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, cancer, and obesity. Green tea and its EGCG seem to restrain the expression of inflammatory cytokines and inflammation-linked enzymes. The use of green tea quite possibly enhances the quality of life for inflammatory disease patients without severe adverse side-effects. (3) Back pain and its associated spinal pain conditions like neck pain, arm pain, leg pain, etc., typically have inflammatory components with them, so increasing consumption of green tea for its anti-inflammatory benefit may be an advantage.
