Vancouver DIET AND INFLAMMATION

Diet may influence obesity and chronic pain, not just in weight-bearing joints but other parts of the body as well. Poor diet often contributes to obesity, affects the immune system unfavorably, and lengthens recovery from inflammatory injury. A diet that is anti-inflammatory in nature in place of a pharmacological intervention after injury may well help with these issues when replaced for the Standard American Diet. (1) Vancouver chiropractic patients with chronic pain frequently discover some relief with wiser eating choices.

ANTI-INFLAMMATORY FOODS

A review of 172 papers proposes 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 eaten three 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 is not bad to have sweets occasionally! (2) Such a treat causes it to be easier to manage a diet change! Eating this way helps manage inflammation/oxidative stress that results in pain relief.  

DIET CHANGE FOR NEUROLOGICAL REPAIR

A well-known diet referred to as 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 started early after the injury. (3) Protecting and regenerating damaged, inflamed nerves is significant in the care of chronic pain and Vancouver back pain at Vancouver Disc Centers. Vancouver Disc Centers is eager to disclose that  anti-inflammatory diets help patients heal from disc herniations and other spine related injuries.
