Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc Encourages Healthy Diet to Avoid Pain and Inflammation

November 13, 2018

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 improve as a result of an anti-inflammatory diet, so Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc encourages an anti-inflammatory diet for pain relief and even neurological recovery when spinal nerves ache 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 a comprehensive chiropractic treatment plan of spinal manipulation, Cox® Technic, exercise and nutritional diet. Fort Wayne chiropractic patients team up with Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc for the relief of Fort Wayne 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, impacts the immune system adversely, and prolongs recovery from inflammatory injury. An anti-inflammatory diet instead of a pharmacological intervention after injury may well help with these concerns when exchanged for the Standard American Diet. (1) Fort Wayne chiropractic patients with chronic pain often find some relief with wiser eating choices.


A review of 172 studies advises that effects of specific 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 eaten 3 times a day along with 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 mixed in weekly. It is not bad to have sweets occasionally! (2) Such a treat makes it easier to manage a diet change! Eating this way facilitates inflammation/oxidative stress that brings about pain relief.  


A fashionable diet referred to as the ketogenic diet may be beneficial for decreasing 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 important in the treatment of chronic pain and Fort Wayne back pain at Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc is eager to disclose that  anti-inflammatory diets foster patients’ healing from disc herniations and other spine related injuries.
