Red. Swollen. Hot. Painful. Signs of inflammation that no Paramus back pain patient desires. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center delivers chiropractic services to reduce back pain by recognizing and dealing with any related inflammation.

INFLAMMATION AND BACK PAIN RELATED

How can you deduce 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 triggered pro-inflammatory pathways that may bring about non-specific low back pain. (1) Researchers observed systemic inflammation in chronic LBP and may affect transition from acute to persistent low back pain. Particularly, CRP was discovered to be elevated in acute low back pain patients versus control patients. TNF was higher in back pain patients especially in patients with depression. (2) Since researchers have already documented that inflammation is tied to back pain, Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center realizes that inflammation must be reduced to help in reducing Paramus back pain.

HOW TO STOP INFLAMMATION

Well, first, understand what inflammation does. Researchers applied lipopolysaccharide (LPS) to simulate intervertebral disc degeneration in experiments. They set out to see what might potentially reduce the generated back pain that comes with it and/or even prevent the degeneration initially so we humans do not have to experience low back pain at all! That’s a tough call though, Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center knows. But consider this: researchers utilized LPS to establish the degeneration that led to low back pain. They discovered that procyanidin B3 (PRO-B3) seen in our diets inhibited the production of inflammatory markers - tumor necrosis factor α (TNF-Α), interleukin-6 (IL-6), prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) and nitric oxide – linked to disc degeneration. It also stopped the loss of the disc’s gelatin nucleus pulposus cells and structural damage of its anulus fibrosus (outer rings of disc). What does all this mean to researchers seeking a way to stop degenerative disc degeneration (DDD)? PRO-B3 may be considered 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 have IVDD, a major cause of low back pain. (3) Another current paper described that the p38 MAPK inflammatory pathway may be a way to delay DDD using the tyrosine kinase inhibitor, Genistein. (4) That’s encouraging for the treatment of Paramus back pain and inflammation.

Vitamin D FOR INFLAMMATION

Research states that vitamin D deficiency is linked with low back pain that is stronger in younger women and in those with more severe deficiency. (5) Vitamin D deficiency is linked to lumbar disc disease and more severe low back pain in postmenopausal women. (6) Let us talk about your vitamin D status at your next Paramus chiropractic appointment.
