Watertown Wellness Center 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 addressed by paying attention to 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 Watertown Wellness Center promotes an anti-inflammatory diet for pain relief and even neurological recovery when spinal nerves ache and are inflamed which results in Watertown back pain and neck pain, etc. Watertown Wellness Center oversees the relief of back pain and neck pain with an inclusive chiropractic treatment plan of spinal manipulation, Cox® Technic, exercise and nutritional diet. Watertown chiropractic patients work with Watertown Wellness Center for the relief of Watertown chronic pain, back pain, and neck pain.

Watertown DIET AND INFLAMMATION

Diet may influence obesity and chronic pain, not just in weight-bearing joints but other parts of the body, too. Poor diet often adds to obesity, influences the immune system unfavorably, and lengthens recovery from inflammatory injury. An anti-inflammatory diet rather than a pharmacological intervention after injury may well help with these concerns when substituted for the Standard American Diet. (1) Watertown chiropractic patients with chronic pain frequently find some relief with wiser eating selections.

ANTI-INFLAMMATORY FOODS

A review of 172 studies proposes that effects of certain 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 interspersed weekly. It’s not bad to have sweets on occasion! (2) That makes it simpler to manage a diet change! Eating this way facilitates inflammation/oxidative stress that results in pain relief.  

DIET CHANGE FOR NEUROLOGICAL REPAIR

A fashionable diet called the ketogenic diet may be beneficial for reducing 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 significant in the care of chronic pain and Watertown back pain at Watertown Wellness Center. Watertown Wellness Center is eager to share that  anti-inflammatory diets help patients heal from disc herniations and other spine related injuries.
