Back And Neck Care Center 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 paying attention to and changing to a more anti-inflammatory diet. Back pain may improve as a result of an anti-inflammatory diet, so Back And Neck Care Center encourages an anti-inflammatory diet for pain relief and even neurological recovery when spinal nerves hurt and are inflamed which results in Severna Park back pain and neck pain, etc. Back And Neck Care Center oversees the relief of back pain and neck pain with an inclusive chiropractic treatment plan of spinal manipulation, Cox® Technic, exercise and nutritional diet. Severna Park chiropractic patients team up with Back And Neck Care Center for the relief of Severna Park 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 unfavorably, and lengthens recovery from inflammatory injury. An anti-inflammatory diet instead of a pharmacological intervention after injury may well help with these concerns when swapped for the Standard American Diet. (1) Severna Park chiropractic patients with chronic pain frequently find some relief with better eating choices.


A review of 172 studies suggests that effects of specific foods are comparable to drug management therapy for chronic pain. Natural compounds like the phenolic compounds in extra virgin olive oil are such. 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 mixed in weekly. It is not bad to have sweets occasionally! (2) That makes it more palatable to achieve a diet change! Eating like this helps manage inflammation/oxidative stress that results in pain relief.  


A well-known diet called 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 initiated early after the injury. (3) Protecting and regenerating damaged, inflamed nerves is significant in the treatment of chronic pain and Severna Park back pain at Back And Neck Care Center. Back And Neck Care Center is excited to share that  anti-inflammatory diets foster patients’ healing from disc herniations and other spine related injuries.
