Manahawkin Chiropractic Center 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 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 Manahawkin Chiropractic Center promotes an anti-inflammatory diet for pain relief and even neurological recovery when spinal nerves ache and are inflamed which causes Manahawkin back pain and neck pain, etc. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center manages and relieves back pain and neck pain with a complete chiropractic treatment plan of spinal manipulation, Cox® Technic, exercise and nutritional diet. Manahawkin chiropractic patients team up with Manahawkin Chiropractic Center for the relief of Manahawkin 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, too. Poor diet many times contributes to obesity, impacts the immune system adversely, and lengthens recovery from inflammatory injury. A diet that is anti-inflammatory in nature rather than a pharmacological intervention after injury may well help with these concerns when exchanged for the Standard American Diet. (1) Manahawkin chiropractic patients with chronic pain frequently discover some relief with better eating choices.


A review of 172 studies proposes that consequences of specific 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 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 interspersed weekly. It is not bad to have sweets occasionally! (2) That 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 be beneficial for reducing inflammation and fostering 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 significant in the care of chronic pain and Manahawkin back pain at Manahawkin Chiropractic Center. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center is eager to disclose that  anti-inflammatory diets foster patients’ healing from disc herniations and other spine related injuries.
