The S.A.D. is sad on so many levels.
Inflammation. Obesity. Pain. S.A.D. being the Standard American Diet may be fixed
by concentrating on and exchanging from a
S.A.D. diet to a more anti-inflammatory diet. Back pain may improve as a result of an anti-inflammatory diet, so
Spengel Chiropractic encourages an anti-inflammatory diet for
pain relief and even neurological recovery when spinal nerves hurt and are inflamed which results in McHenry back pain and neck pain,
etc. Spengel Chiropractic oversees the relief of back pain
and neck pain with a complete chiropractic
treatment plan of spinal manipulation, Cox® Technic, exercise and nutritional
diet. McHenry chiropractic patients team up with
Spengel Chiropractic for the relief of McHenry chronic pain, back pain,
and neck pain.
McHenry DIET AND INFLAMMATION
Diet may influence obesity and chronic
pain, not just in weight-bearing joints but other parts of the body, too. Poor diet often adds to obesity, influences
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 issues when replaced
for the Standard American Diet. (1) McHenry chiropractic patients
with chronic pain frequently find some relief with better
A review of 172 studies suggests
that consequences of certain 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 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 mixed in weekly. It is
not bad to have sweets on occasion! (2) Such a treat
makes it more palatable to achieve
a diet change! Eating like this facilitates
inflammation/oxidative stress that brings about pain relief.
DIET CHANGE FOR NEUROLOGICAL REPAIR
A fashionable diet called the ketogenic diet may have a good effect on decreasing
inflammation and advancing 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 treatment of chronic pain and McHenry back pain at
Spengel Chiropractic. Spengel Chiropractic is eager to disclose
that anti-inflammatory diets help
patients heal from disc herniations and other
spine related injuries.
