Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville Encourages Healthy Diet to Avoid Pain and Inflammation

The S.A.D. is sad on so many levels. Inflammation. Obesity. Pain. S.A.D. being the Standard American Diet may be fixed by concentrating on and exchanging from a S.A.D. diet to a more anti-inflammatory diet. Back pain may improve as a result of an anti-inflammatory diet, so Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville urges an anti-inflammatory diet for pain relief and even neurological recovery when spinal nerves hurt and are inflamed which results in St. Francisville back pain and neck pain, etc. Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville manages and relieves back pain and neck pain with an inclusive chiropractic treatment plan of spinal manipulation, Cox® Technic, exercise and nutritional diet. St. Francisville chiropractic patients work with Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville for the relief of St. Francisville chronic pain, back pain, and neck pain.


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 often adds to obesity, impacts the immune system adversely, and delays recovery from inflammatory injury. A diet that is anti-inflammatory in nature rather than a pharmacological intervention after injury may well assist these issues when substituted for the Standard American Diet. (1) St. Francisville chiropractic patients with chronic pain often find some relief with healthier eating selections.


A review of 172 papers advises that consequences of specific foods are comparable 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 consumed 3 times a day alongside 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’s not bad to have sweets occasionally! (2) That causes it to be more palatable to achieve a diet change! Eating this way facilitates inflammation/oxidative stress that brings about pain relief.  


A fashionable diet referred to as the ketogenic diet may be beneficial for decreasing inflammation and advancing neuroprotection, protection of the nerves and even neurological recovery of spinal cord injury if started in a timely manner after the injury. (3) Protecting and regenerating damaged, inflamed nerves is important in the treatment of chronic pain and St. Francisville back pain at Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville. Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville is excited to share that  anti-inflammatory diets help patients heal from disc herniations and other spine related injuries.
