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 delays recovery from inflammatory injury. An anti-inflammatory diet rather than a pharmacological intervention after injury may well assist these concerns when replaced for the Standard American Diet. (1) Plainville chiropractic patients with chronic pain frequently find some relief with wiser 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 examples. Carbohydrates with low glycemic indices eaten 3 times a day along with fruits and vegetables, yogurt, red wine are good daily. Fish and legumes, white meat, eggs and cheese and red meats can be interspersed weekly. It is not bad to have sweets occasionally! (2) Such a treat causes it to be more palatable to achieve a diet change! Eating like this facilitates inflammation/oxidative stress that brings about pain relief.  


A fashionable diet referred to as 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 in a timely manner after the injury. (3) Protecting and regenerating damaged, inflamed nerves is significant in the care of chronic pain and Plainville back pain at Layden Chiropractic. Layden Chiropractic is eager to share that  anti-inflammatory diets foster patients’ healing from disc herniations and other spine related injuries.
