Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic Treats Back Pain and Its Inflammatory Process

Red. Swollen. Hot. Painful. Signs of inflammation that no Montreal back pain patient desires. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic offers chiropractic services to reduce back pain by recognizing and addressing any associated inflammation.

INFLAMMATION AND BACK PAIN RELATED

How can you differentiate if there’s inflammation? Like other issues, researchers search for ways 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 showed an increase. Researchers have uncovered that chronic inflammation increased cytokine production and triggered pro-inflammatory pathways that may cause non-specific low back pain. (1) Researchers observed 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 and not in control patients. TNF was greater in back pain patients especially in patients with depression. (2) Since researchers have already documented that inflammation is tied to back pain, Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic knows that inflammation must be decreased to help in reducing Montreal back pain.

HOW TO STOP INFLAMMATION

Well, first, know what inflammation does. Researchers used lipopolysaccharide (LPS) to create intervertebral disc degeneration in trials. They want to see what may potentially decrease the generated back pain that accompanies it and/or even prevent the degeneration in the first place so we humans don’t have to be subjected to low back pain at all! That’s a tall order though, Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic understands. But follow this: researchers utilized LPS to establish the degeneration that led to low back pain. They found that procyanidin B3 (PRO-B3) found in our diets prevented 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 prevented the loss of the disc’s gelatin 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 stop degenerative disc degeneration (DDD)? PRO-B3 may be looked at as a treatment agent for intervertebral disc degeneration (IVDD). This is a welcome bit of information for those 80% of us adults who are on track to experience IVDD, a major cause of low back pain. (3) Another recent paper described that the p38 MAPK inflammatory pathway may be a way to postpone DDD utilizing the tyrosine kinase inhibitor, Genistein. (4) That is hopeful in the treatment of Montreal back pain and inflammation.

Vitamin D FOR INFLAMMATION

Research states 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 linked to lumbar disc disease and more severe low back pain in postmenopausal women. (6) Let us talk about your vitamin D intake at your next Montreal chiropractic appointment.
