Montreal Pain Relief with Green Tea

We need to bring back teatime, that quiet time in the middle of the day to enjoy a quiet cup of tea away from the bustle of life! (Your Montreal chiropractor would enjoy such a time again!) Teatime was valuable for the mind and spirit and very likely quite good for the body. Most days, we just can’t imagine that we have time, but just enjoying tea on the run in an insulated mug on the way to your chiropractic appointment at Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic can be just right, especially if it’s green tea.


In China, drinking tea is part of daily life. That’s a pretty good idea! In evaluating the health benefits of tea and its active ingredients for osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis – familiar bone and joint diseases bothering many people – researchers found that tea offers potential anti-COX (cycolooxygenase) factors and hormone-like effects. They concluded that tea has a vast potential to be helpful in medicine and healthcare especially as the mechanisms of various tea properties are defined as to their synergistic mechanisms. (1) Tea from plants around us presents us a delicious way to be healthier and even a bit painfree!


The more information we gather about what nature has for us via medicinal plants, the more we will want to thank nature! Green tea is a well-known beverage sourced from such medicinal plants. Green tea via several pharmacological activities and antinociceptive effects can be effective for pain relief because of its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Green tea is explained to be a safe and often effective treatment for pain management because if can suppress inflammation and oxidative stress. (2) Green tea’s major component, EGCG (epigallocatechin-3-gallate), is described in the published literature as a valuable anti-inflammatory factor as well as anti-oxidant. Research papers have reported how green tea is good diseases like obesity, cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and neurodegenerative diseases. Green tea and its EGCG seem to curb the expression of inflammatory cytokines and inflammation-linked enzymes. The use of green tea quite possibly improves the quality of life for inflammatory disease patients with no severe adverse side-effects. (3) Back pain and its related spinal pain conditions like neck pain, arm pain, leg pain, etc., typically have inflammatory components with them, so adding green tea for its anti-inflammatory benefit may be an advantage.
