Wilson Family Chiropractic Encourages Healthy Diet to Avoid Pain and Inflammation

The S.A.D. is sad for many reasons. Inflammation. Obesity. Pain. S.A.D. being the Standard American Diet may be fixed by paying attention to and changing to a more anti-inflammatory diet. Back pain may benefit as well from an anti-inflammatory diet, so Wilson Family Chiropractic encourages an anti-inflammatory diet for pain relief and even neurological recovery when spinal nerves ache and are inflamed which results in Millville back pain and neck pain, etc. Wilson Family Chiropractic oversees the relief of back pain and neck pain with an inclusive chiropractic treatment plan of spinal manipulation, Cox® Technic, exercise and nutritional diet. Millville chiropractic patients work with Wilson Family Chiropractic for the relief of Millville 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, influences the immune system adversely, and delays recovery from inflammatory injury. A diet that is anti-inflammatory in nature rather than a pharmacological intervention after injury may well assist these concerns when swapped for the Standard American Diet. (1) Millville chiropractic patients with chronic pain frequently discover some relief with better eating choices.


A review of 172 papers proposes 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 such. Carbohydrates with low glycemic indices consumed 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 interspersed weekly. It’s not bad to have sweets on occasion! (2) That makes it simpler to achieve a diet change! Eating like this helps manage inflammation/oxidative stress that brings about pain relief.  


A popular diet called the ketogenic diet may have a good effect on reducing inflammation and promoting neuroprotection, protection of the nerves and even neurological recovery of spinal cord injury if initiated in a timely manner after the injury. (3) Protecting and regenerating damaged, inflamed nerves is important in the care of chronic pain and Millville back pain at Wilson Family Chiropractic. Wilson Family Chiropractic is excited to disclose that  anti-inflammatory diets foster patients’ healing from disc herniations and other spine related injuries.
