Diet may influence obesity and chronic pain, not just in weight-bearing joints but other parts of the body, too.

An anti-inflammatory diet instead of a pharmacological intervention after injury may well assist these issues when substituted for the Standard American Diet. (1) Lynchburg chiropractic patients with chronic pain often discover some relief with wiser eating selections.


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 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 interspersed weekly. It is not bad to have sweets on occasion! (2) That causes it to be more palatable to manage a diet change! Eating this way facilitates inflammation/oxidative stress that results in pain relief.  


A well-known diet called the ketogenic diet may have a good effect on decreasing 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.
