Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc 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 concentrating on and changing to a more anti-inflammatory diet. Back pain may improve as a result of an anti-inflammatory diet, so Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc urges an anti-inflammatory diet for pain relief and even neurological recovery when spinal nerves hurt and are inflamed which causes Fort Wayne back pain and neck pain, etc. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc oversees the relief of back pain and neck pain with an inclusive chiropractic treatment plan of spinal manipulation, Cox® Technic, exercise and nutritional diet. Fort Wayne chiropractic patients work with Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc for the relief of Fort Wayne chronic pain, back pain, and neck pain.


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 adds to obesity, impacts the immune system unfavorably, and lengthens recovery from inflammatory injury. An anti-inflammatory diet instead of a pharmacological intervention after injury may well help with these issues when swapped for the Standard American Diet. (1) Fort Wayne chiropractic patients with chronic pain frequently discover some relief with healthier eating choices.


A review of 172 papers suggests 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 consumed 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 interspersed weekly. It is not bad to have sweets on occasion! (2) Such a treat makes it easier to manage a diet change! Eating like this facilitates inflammation/oxidative stress that brings about pain relief.  


A well-known diet called the ketogenic diet may have a good effect on lessening 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 important in the treatment of chronic pain and Fort Wayne back pain at Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc is excited to disclose that  anti-inflammatory diets help patients heal from disc herniations and other spine related injuries.
