Chiropractic Solutions 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 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 Chiropractic Solutions encourages an anti-inflammatory diet for pain relief and even neurological recovery when spinal nerves ache and are inflamed which causes San Jose back pain and neck pain, etc. Chiropractic Solutions manages and relieves back pain and neck pain with an inclusive chiropractic treatment plan of spinal manipulation, Cox® Technic, exercise and nutritional diet. San Jose chiropractic patients team up with Chiropractic Solutions for the relief of San Jose chronic pain, back pain, and neck pain.


Diet may influence obesity and chronic pain, not just in weight-bearing joints but other parts of the body, too. Poor diet many times adds to obesity, affects the immune system unfavorably, 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 swapped for the Standard American Diet. (1) San Jose chiropractic patients with chronic pain often find some relief with better eating choices.


A review of 172 studies suggests that effects 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 eaten 3 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 mixed in weekly. It is not bad to have sweets on occasion! (2) That causes it to be more palatable to achieve a diet change! Eating like this facilitates inflammation/oxidative stress that brings about pain relief.  


A well-known diet referred to as the ketogenic diet may have a good effect on decreasing inflammation and fostering 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 treatment of chronic pain and San Jose back pain at Chiropractic Solutions. Chiropractic Solutions is eager to disclose that  anti-inflammatory diets help patients heal from disc herniations and other spine related injuries.
