The S.A.D. is sad for many reasons.
Inflammation. Obesity. Pain. S.A.D. being the Standard American Diet may be addressed
by paying attention to and changing to a more anti-inflammatory diet. Back pain may benefit as
well from an anti-inflammatory diet, so
Johnson Chiropractic urges an anti-inflammatory diet for
pain relief and even neurological recovery when spinal nerves are
in pain and are inflamed which causes Richmond back pain and neck pain,
etc. Johnson Chiropractic oversees the relief of back pain
and neck pain with an inclusive chiropractic
treatment plan of spinal manipulation, Cox® Technic, exercise and nutritional
diet. Richmond chiropractic patients work with
Johnson Chiropractic for the relief of Richmond chronic pain, back pain,
and neck pain.
Richmond 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 contributes to obesity, impacts
the immune system unfavorably, and lengthens
recovery from inflammatory injury. An anti-inflammatory diet in place of a pharmacological intervention after injury may well help with
these concerns when replaced
for the Standard American Diet. (1) Richmond chiropractic patients
with chronic pain frequently find some relief with healthier
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 such.
Carbohydrates with low glycemic indices consumed three
times a day along with 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
causes it to be simpler to manage
a diet change! Eating this way facilitates
inflammation/oxidative stress that brings about pain relief.
DIET CHANGE FOR NEUROLOGICAL REPAIR
A fashionable diet referred
to as the ketogenic diet may be beneficial for decreasing
inflammation and fostering neuroprotection,
protection of the nerves and even neurological recovery of spinal cord injury
if initiated in a timely manner after the injury. (3)
Protecting and regenerating damaged, inflamed nerves is significant
in the treatment of chronic pain and Richmond back pain at
Johnson Chiropractic. Johnson Chiropractic is excited to share
that anti-inflammatory diets foster patients’ healing from disc herniations and other
spine related injuries.
