Young Chiropractic Encourages Healthy Diet to Avoid Pain and Inflammation

November 13, 2018

The S.A.D. is sad for many reasons. Inflammation. Obesity. Pain. S.A.D. being the Standard American Diet may be addressed by concentrating on and changing to a more anti-inflammatory diet. Back pain may benefit as well from an anti-inflammatory diet, so Young Chiropractic encourages an anti-inflammatory diet for pain relief and even neurological recovery when spinal nerves ache and are inflamed which results in Easley back pain and neck pain, etc. Young Chiropractic oversees the relief of back pain and neck pain with a comprehensive chiropractic treatment plan of spinal manipulation, Cox® Technic, exercise and nutritional diet. Easley chiropractic patients work with Young Chiropractic for the relief of Easley 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 as well. Poor diet many times adds to obesity, affects the immune system unfavorably, and lengthens recovery from inflammatory injury. A diet that is anti-inflammatory in nature instead of a pharmacological intervention after injury may well assist these issues when substituted for the Standard American Diet. (1) Easley chiropractic patients with chronic pain frequently discover some relief with better eating choices.


A review of 172 studies suggests that consequences of certain foods are akin 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 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 mixed in 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 facilitates inflammation/oxidative stress that results in pain relief.  


A fashionable diet called the ketogenic diet may have a good effect on reducing inflammation and advancing 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 Easley back pain at Young Chiropractic. Young Chiropractic is eager to disclose that  anti-inflammatory diets foster patients’ healing from disc herniations and other spine related injuries.
