Buffalo, NY Leg Pain and Memory Benefit from Curcumin

Back pain and Memory. Back pain and cognition. Is there a link? Ask any Buffalo, NY 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 on the mind. The Novelli Wellness Center gets it. Back pain specialists like yours at The Novelli Wellness Center understand this connection. Pain affects the brain and its memory function. Chiropractic care works to reduce the pain, and The Novelli Wellness Center may suggest some curcumin to foster the pain relief…and memory and cognition improvement.

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 have stress because of their chronic pain and non-pain-related issues which worsens their symptoms. It is a vicious cycle. These pain and stress feelings alongside emotions, learning, and memory are managed by the hippocampus. Neuropathic pain affects the nervous system, and hippocampal neurogenesis, its growth and development of nervous tissue, is exacerbated by stress. (1) To combat this negative effect on the nervous system, researchers are researching nutrients like curcumin. Curcumin reduced chronic pain and enhanced 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) The Novelli Wellness Center cares for many Buffalo, NY leg pain patients and their pain relief from a compressed and irritated sciatic nerve. Curcumin may help both memory and sciatica!

CURCUMIN FOR SCIATICA

There is compelling evidence that curcumin plays an important role in the treatment of pathological pain due to sciatic nerve injury, neuropathy and the like. (3) Current drugs for acute pain (opioids, NSAIDs, acetaminophen and such) help but also have side-effects (renal, liver, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal) and hold a potential for abuse. This prompted a few 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) prevented pain-related behavior, decreased inflammatory markers and enhanced memory deficient and spatial learning in chronically constricted rats. (5) Curcumin may be suitable for your Buffalo, NY back pain condition, too. The Novelli Wellness Center will delve into this with you at your next Buffalo, NY chiropractic appointment.
