Groton Back Pain May Leave Your Cognition A Bit Fuzzy Bee Pollen May be of Help

Back pain can leave its sufferer feeling somewhat fuzzy headed. Cognitive impairment and back pain come hand in hand for some. Cognitive impairment is not a topic you’d think “chiropractic,” but it is an issue your Groton chiropractor thinks about as it’s seen in low back pain patients. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office carefully observes our Groton back pain and neck pain patients for their handling of the condition. Some are fine; others struggle a bit. We will be sure to help with any issues like this. Recent studies discuss how bee pollen may be beneficial in controlling.

COGNITIVE DYSFUNCTION AND BACK PAIN

Lumbar spine degenerated disc disease is a growing concern globally as the world’s population grows older. Dementia has been associated with lumbar degenerative disc disease as a result of physical dysfunction, quality of life, and pain. Particularly, one study reported that 41% of patients with lumbar spinal stenosis had mild cognitive impairment. (1) Short, simple screening tests and questionnaires can efficiently find cognitive impairment. Once found, cognitive impairment may be confronted by interventions like cognitive stimulation and training, exercise, medications, and supplements which showed some good effects on patients’ physical and cognitive function though not curative. (2) Chiropractic is ready to play an integral role in back pain management. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office works to reduce the back pain with our Groton chiropractic treatment plan in hopes of reducing the cognitive dysfunction triggered by the stress of pain.

BEE POLLEN FOR COGNITIVE DYSFUNCTION, ANXIETY

Researchers described chronic stress as a possible problem linked to anxiety, depression, and cognitive dysfunction. (Groton chiropractic patients know the stress that comes with back pain!) With bee pollen’s therapeutic effects identified to be related to its powerful antioxidant quality, an analysis of Anatolian bee pollen’s effect on depression and anxiety found that it lessened anxiety-like behavior in the study’s rats. The researchers explained that the bee pollen reduced oxidative damage and neuroinflammation caused by immobilization stress. (3) That’s a new approach Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office has not heard of often!

BEE POLLEN FOR COGNITIVE DYSFUNCTION

Bee pollen’s use in public health goes back into old, old times. The significant health and medicinal properties make it a treasure trove of nutrition. Made of plant pollen and honeybee secretions and nectar, bee pollen has bioactive compounds including proteins, amino acids, lipids, minerals, vitamins, polyphenols, and carbohydrates. Components of bee pollen are reported to enhance a variety of bodily functions and protect against many diseases. (4) One such disease is cognitive dysfunction. A recent report discusses the way by which bee pollen enhances cognitive impairment that is brought on by “cholinergic blockade.” How? It gets down to the cellular level which is a bit complex and explicable by an alphabet soup of proteins like proBNDF, tPa, ERK-CREB, Akt-GSK-3. Bottomline: The researchers end up suggesting that bee pollen would be a valuable agent for managing cognitive dysfunction. (5) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office presents findings like this as spine pain, back pain, neck pain, etc., are complex conditions involving many parts which frequently call for just as many different approaches like spinal manipulation, nutrition, exercise, rest, etc.
