Augusta Pain Relief with Green Tea

April 04, 2024

We need to bring back teatime, that quiet time in the middle of the afternoon to enjoy a quiet cup of tea and escape from the bustle of life! (Your Augusta chiropractor would enjoy such a break again!) Teatime was valuable for the mind and spirit and most likely very good for the body. Today, most of us just can’t imagine that we have time, but just enjoying tea on the run in an insulated mug on the commute to your chiropractic appointment at Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic can be just right, especially if that tea is green.


In China, drinking tea is a traditional lifestyle factor. Not a bad thing! In evaluating the health benefits of tea and its active ingredients for osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis – familiar bone and joint diseases affecting many people – researchers found that tea offers potential anti-COX (cycolooxygenase) factors and hormone-like effects. They concluded that tea has a great 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 offers us a tasty way to be healthier and even a bit painfree!


The more information we gather about what nature has for us by medicinal plants, the more we will want to thank nature! Green tea is a common beverage obtained from such medicinal plants. Green tea via several pharmacological activities and antinociceptive effects can be effective for pain relief due to its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Green tea is explained to be a safe and often effective treatment for pain management owing to its suppression of inflammation and oxidative stress. (2) Green tea’s major component, EGCG (epigallocatechin-3-gallate), has shown itself to be valuable for its anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties. Research papers have published how green tea is good diseases like neurodegenerative and cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, cancer, and obesity. Green tea and its EGCG seem to restrain the expression of inflammatory cytokines and inflammation-linked enzymes. The use of green tea potentially 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 leg, arm, and neck pain, etc., typically have inflammatory components with them, so adding green tea for its anti-inflammatory benefit may be an advantage.
