Montreal Leg Pain and Memory Benefit from Curcumin

Back pain and Memory. Back pain and cognition. Is there a link? Ask any Montreal back pain sufferer who has had the pain for a while, and you will hear just how the mind and memory just don’t seem to function like normal when pain is on the mind. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic gets it. Back pain specialists like yours at Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic understand this connection. Pain alters the brain and its memory function. Chiropractic care works to reduce the pain, and Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic may propose some curcumin to foster the pain relief…and memory and cognition recovery.

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 have stress due to their chronic pain and non-pain-related problems which aggravates their symptoms. It is a nasty cycle. These pain and stress feelings as well as emotions, learning, and memory are managed 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 combat this negative effect on the nervous system, researchers are looking to nutrients like curcumin. Curcumin decreased chronic pain and enhanced cognitive impairment and memory deficit associated with long-term sciatic nerve constriction. Researchers describe how hippocampal neurogenesis and synaptic plasticity improvements may be acknowledged, so we’ll just do that (and be grateful that researchers understand the process!) instead of working to totally get them ourselves. (2) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic cares for many Montreal leg pain patients and their pain relief due to a compressed and irritated sciatic nerve. Curcumin may help both memory and sciatica!

CURCUMIN FOR SCIATICA

There is compelling evidence that curcumin has an important role in the treatment of pathological pain stemming from sciatic nerve injury, neuropathy and such. (3) Current drugs for acute pain (opioids, NSAIDs, acetaminophen and such) help but come with side-effects (renal, liver, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal) and have a potential for abuse. This prompted 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 found that nanocurcumin (a soluble form of curcumin) ended pain-related behavior, decreased inflammatory markers and improved memory deficient and spatial learning in chronically constricted rats. (5) Curcumin may be suitable for your Montreal back pain condition, too. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic will delve into this with you at your next Montreal chiropractic appointment.
