Paramus Leg Pain and Memory Benefit from Curcumin

Back pain and Memory. Back pain and cognition. Is there a link? Ask any Paramus back pain sufferer who’s had the pain for a while, and you will hear just how the mind and memory just do not seem to work like normal when pain is in play. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center understands. Back pain specialists like yours at Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center understand this connection. Pain affects the brain and its memory function. Chiropractic care works to decrease the pain, and Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center may propose some curcumin to foster the pain relief…and memory and cognition improvement.

CURCUMIN FOR MEMORY ISSUES

Chronic pain sufferers recognize that their pain influences their quality of life. It slows them down. It holds them back. They also experience stress because of their chronic pain and non-pain-related problems which aggravates their symptoms. It is a nasty cycle. These pain and stress feelings alongside 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 aggravated by stress. (1) To fight this negative effect on the nervous system, researchers are studying nutrients like curcumin. Curcumin eased chronic pain and enhanced cognitive impairment and memory deficit linked to long-term sciatic nerve constriction. Researchers describe how hippocampal neurogenesis and synaptic plasticity improvements may be thanked, so we will just thank them (and be grateful that researchers understand the process!) instead of working to fully get them ourselves. (2) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center treats many Paramus leg pain patients and their pain relief due to a compressed and irritated sciatic nerve. Curcumin may improve both memory and sciatica!

CURCUMIN FOR SCIATICA

There is convincing evidence that curcumin plays an important part in the treatment of pathological pain stemming from sciatic nerve injury, neuropathy and the like. (3) Current drugs for acute pain (opioids, NSAIDs, acetaminophen and such) help but come with side-effects (renal, liver, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal) and hold a potential for abuse. This persuaded a few researchers to look at curcumin more closely. 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) ended pain-related behavior, decreased inflammatory markers and enhanced memory deficient and spatial learning in chronically constricted rats. (5) Curcumin may be suitable for your Paramus back pain condition, too. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center will explore this with you at your next Paramus chiropractic appointment.
