Brooks Leg Pain and Memory Benefit from Curcumin

Memory and back pain. Back pain and cognition. Is there a link? Ask any Brooks back pain sufferer who’s 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 in play. Soft Health and Healing Clinic understands. Back pain specialists like yours at Soft Health and Healing Clinic understand this connection. Pain alters the brain and its memory function. Chiropractic care works to reduce the pain, and Soft Health and Healing Clinic may suggest some curcumin to aid in the pain relief…and memory and cognition recovery.

CURCUMIN FOR MEMORY ISSUES

Chronic pain sufferers know that their pain influences their quality of life. It slows them down. It holds them back. They also experience stress due to their chronic pain and non-pain-related problems which aggravates their symptoms. It’s a vicious 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 combat this negative effect on the nervous system, researchers are studying nutrients like curcumin. Curcumin reduced chronic pain and improved cognitive impairment and memory deficit linked to long-term sciatic nerve constriction. Researchers explain that hippocampal neurogenesis and synaptic plasticity improvements may be acknowledged, so we will just do that (and be grateful that researchers understand the process!) instead of working to totally understand them ourselves. (2) Soft Health and Healing Clinic cares for many Brooks 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 convincing evidence that curcumin has an important part 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 also have side-effects (renal, liver, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal) and have a potential for abuse. This persuaded some researchers to study curcumin more. 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) stopped pain-related behavior, decreased inflammatory markers and enhanced memory deficient and spatial learning in chronically constricted rats. (5) Curcumin may be appropriate for your Brooks back pain condition, too. Soft Health and Healing Clinic will explore this with you at your next Brooks chiropractic appointment.
