The S.A.D. is sad on so many levels.
Inflammation. Obesity. Pain. S.A.D. being the Standard American Diet may be remedied
by paying attention to and changing to a more anti-inflammatory diet. Back pain may benefit as
well from an anti-inflammatory diet, so
Pflugerville Wellness Center urges an anti-inflammatory diet for
pain relief and even neurological recovery when spinal nerves are
in pain and are inflamed which results in Pflugerville back pain and neck pain,
etc. Pflugerville Wellness Center oversees the relief of back pain
and neck pain with a comprehensive chiropractic
treatment plan of spinal manipulation, Cox® Technic, exercise and nutritional
diet. Pflugerville chiropractic patients team up with
Pflugerville Wellness Center for the relief of Pflugerville chronic pain, back pain,
and neck pain.
Pflugerville 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, too. Poor diet many times contributes to obesity, influences
the immune system adversely, and lengthens
recovery from inflammatory injury. A diet that is anti-inflammatory in
nature instead of a pharmacological intervention after injury may well help with
these issues when replaced
for the Standard American Diet. (1) Pflugerville chiropractic patients
with chronic pain frequently find some relief with wiser
A review of 172 papers suggests
that effects of certain 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 3
times a day along with fruits and vegetables, yogurt, red wine
are good on a daily basis. Fish and legumes, white meat, eggs and
cheese and red meats can be mixed in weekly. It is
not bad to have sweets on occasion! (2) Such a treat
makes it easier to manage
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 be beneficial for reducing
inflammation and advancing neuroprotection,
protection of the nerves and even neurological recovery of spinal cord injury
if started early after the injury. (3)
Protecting and regenerating damaged, inflamed nerves is significant
in the care of chronic pain and Pflugerville back pain at
Pflugerville Wellness Center. Pflugerville Wellness Center is excited to share
that anti-inflammatory diets foster patients’ healing from disc herniations and other
spine related injuries.
