New Roads DIET AND INFLAMMATION
Diet may play a role in obesity and chronic
pain, not just in weight-bearing joints but other parts of the body as
well. Poor diet many times adds to obesity, influences
the immune system adversely, and prolongs
recovery from inflammatory injury. An anti-inflammatory diet instead of a pharmacological intervention after injury may well assist
these concerns when replaced
for the Standard American Diet. (1) New Roads chiropractic patients
with chronic pain often find some relief with wiser
A review of 172 studies suggests
that effects of specific foods are akin
to drug management therapy for chronic pain. Natural compounds like the
phenolic compounds in extra virgin olive oil are examples.
Carbohydrates with low glycemic indices eaten three
times a day alongside fruits and vegetables, yogurt, red wine
are good daily. Fish and legumes, white meat, eggs and
cheese and red meats can be interspersed weekly. It’s
not bad to have sweets on occasion! (2) Such a treat
makes it simpler to achieve
a diet change! Eating this way helps manage
inflammation/oxidative stress that brings about pain relief.
DIET CHANGE FOR NEUROLOGICAL REPAIR
A popular diet referred
to as the ketogenic diet may have a good effect on decreasing
inflammation and promoting neuroprotection,
protection of the nerves and even neurological recovery of spinal cord injury
if initiated early after the injury. (3)
Protecting and regenerating damaged, inflamed nerves is important
in the care of chronic pain and New Roads back pain at
New Roads Chiropractic Center. New Roads Chiropractic Center is eager to share
that anti-inflammatory diets foster patients’ healing from disc herniations and other
spine related injuries.
