COGNITIVE DYSFUNCTION AND BACK PAIN

Lumbar spine degenerated disc disease is a growing concern globally as the world’s population ages. Dementia has been linked to lumbar degenerative disc disease as a result of physical dysfunction, quality of life, and pain. Specifically, one study stated that 41% of patients with lumbar spinal stenosis were found to also experience mild cognitive impairment. (1) Short, simple screening tests and questionnaires can efficiently detect cognitive impairment. Once found, cognitive impairment may be confronted by interventions like cognitive stimulation and training, exercise, medications, and supplements which showed some good effects on patients’ physical and cognitive function though not curative. (2) Chiropractic is ready to play an integral role in back pain management. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center works to reduce the back pain with our Paramus chiropractic treatment plan in hopes of reducing the cognitive dysfunction triggered by the stress of pain.

BEE POLLEN FOR COGNITIVE DYSFUNCTION, ANXIETY

Researchers explained chronic stress as a possible issue associated with anxiety, depression, and cognitive dysfunction. (Paramus chiropractic patients understand the stress that comes with back pain!) With bee pollen’s therapeutic effects known to be related to its powerful antioxidant quality, a study of Anatolian bee pollen’s effect on depression and anxiety found that it lessened anxiety-like behavior in the study’s rats. The researchers clarified that the bee pollen reduced oxidative damage and neuroinflammation caused by immobilization stress. (3) That’s a novel approach Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center hasn’t heard of often!

BEE POLLEN FOR COGNITIVE DYSFUNCTION

Bee pollen’s use in public health goes back into old, old times. The significant health and medicinal properties make it a treasure trove of nutrition. Made of plant pollen and honeybee secretions and nectar, bee pollen contains bioactive compounds including proteins, amino acids, lipids, minerals, vitamins, polyphenols, and carbohydrates. Components of bee pollen are described as enhancing a variety of bodily functions and protect against many diseases. (4) One such disease is cognitive dysfunction. A recent report discusses the way by which bee pollen improves cognitive impairment that is brought on by “cholinergic blockade.” How? It gets down to the cellular level which is a bit complex and explainable by an alphabet soup of proteins like proBNDF, tPa, ERK-CREB, Akt-GSK-3. Bottomline: The researchers end up suggesting that bee pollen would be a valuable agent for managing cognitive dysfunction. (5) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center presents findings like this as spine pain, back pain, neck pain, etc., are complex conditions involving many parts which oftentimes call for just as many different approaches like spinal manipulation, nutrition, exercise, rest, etc.
