Sturgeon Bay, WI (PRWEB) April 23, 2013

Patients with chronic back or neck pain often complain of fuzzy thinking, poor memory, and feelings of anxiety and depression. Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin Chiropractor and Naturopath Dr. J G Moellendorf, DC, ND, LCP points out that these symptoms start in the hippocampal area of the brain, the same region that processes spinal pain signals. Doctors and researchers have often wondered if chronic pain is actually a whole-brain disorder, rather than the pain signaling system gone awry, .

Researchers Amelia A Mutso, A. Vania Apkarian, et al at Northwestern University investigated the underlying cellular and molecular changes that influence behaviors in mice with chronic abnormal nerve pain. Their findings were recently published in a paper titled Abnormalities in Hippocampal Functioning with Persistent Pain in the Journal of Neuroscience.

The hippocampus, which is critical for learning, memory and emotional processing, is one of the few brain regions of mice and men in which new neurons grow. The researchers found that chronic nerve pain in mice causes a failure in new hippocampal neuron growth, disrupts its electrical and biochemical signaling, and results in increased anxious behaviors and difficulties with emotional learning.

Using anatomical brain scans, the researchers measured the hippocampal volume of three groups of humans with chronic pain. The two groups with chronic back
