Can reduction of inflammation improve the recovery of low back pain?

This research included 155 women 65 years or older with acute low back pain (Queiroz BZ, et.al., 2017).
The researchers showed a relationship between inflammation and low back pain, establishing that low IL-6 levels (an inflammatory marker) preceded the recovery. This supports that proinflammatory cytokines promote pain.

In the first year after an acute episode of low back pain, there was a decrease in the severity of low back pain corresponding to decreased levels of IL-6 and TNF-α, another inflammatory marker.

 

 

The researcher concluded that the probability of occurrence of pain relief at the 12-month
follow-up was 2.22 times higher in elderly women who had low levels of IL-6.

Systemic inflammation is linked with the development and persistence of many pathological pain states (Klyne DM, et.al., 2017).
Both CRP, an inflammatory marker, and IL-6 were higher in study participants with acute low back pain compared with controls, and they were also higher in the participants with more pain compared with those who had less pain?
The researchers said these findings suggest systemic CRP and IL-6 are important contributors to
inflammation in the early phase of low back pain and that various factors can shape these responses.

A plant-based low glycemic index diet can be very effective in reducing systemic inflammation.
Research has also shown plant-derived compounds in supplemental form to reduce free radicals and inflammation.

Do you feel stiff or experience aches and pain?

If you do, you have increased free radical damage and low-grade inflammation which is getting more and more common as we get older.

When free radicals damage tissue, inflammation is triggered. This type of inflammation spreads throughout the body and can be measured in the blood.

Not only can this create discomfort, but science recognizes this type of inflammation as a risk factor for cardiovascular disease and other chronic conditions.

That’s the reason the Curcumin-4 was developed.

What Will Increase Neck Pain?

Neck pain is very common. Hence, most people have experienced it at times.

Some people who sit at a desk or work as a cashier may lead to experience chronic neck pain.

We are aware that both stress and sitting in a bad position can make neck pain worse. But, what else has science found to increase neck pain?

Maybe you guessed it, it’s inflammation. 

It is recognized that inflammation is important in the development of work-related musculoskeletal disorders. Moreover, this study measured concentrations of inflammatory compounds (cytokines) in female supermarket cashiers who had work related neck/shoulder problems. Consecutively, they compared the concentrations with women without these complaints (Matute Wilander A, et al. 2014).

Based on this study, healthy women with ongoing work-related neck/shoulder pain had higher concentrations of MIP-1beta, IL-12 and CRP(all inflammatory compounds) when compared to the control group.

How can you reduce inflammation?

You can affect your inflammation greatly with how and what you eat.

Food which raises the blood sugar to a high level has been found to significantly increase hs-CRP, one of the inflammatory markers (Liu S, et al. 2002).

There are many foods that may reduce inflammation. However, legumes may be one of the most effective ones (Esmaillzadeh A, Azadbakht, 2012). Based on this research, women, who have legume intake, showed reduced hs-CRP, TNF-alpha and IL-6, all of which are inflammatory compounds.
