Nutrition is an integral part of your health and wellbeing. Most people only associate their nutrition with their weight, but your nutrition can affect how you feel in many ways. It can especially affect pain levels if you deal with inflammation. Massage therapy at Davidson Chiropractic Clinic can help with inflammation and pain management. When you add to this nutritional guidance from your chiropractor, you can start to see real improvement in your pain and discomfort. Keep reading to learn more.
How Does Nutrition Affect Pain?
Most pain is an inflammation response. It is our body’s way of letting us know that something is not right. However, other things can trigger an inflammation response as well. Many foods are highly inflammatory. That means that our body feels like it must protect us from what is being ingested. The following foods are highly inflammatory and could affect your pain and discomfort levels.
- White flour
- Highly processed foods
- Vegetable oil
Unfortunately, most Americans use these foods regularly. This means that our bodies are often in a state of inflammation. This inflammation could be avoided by simple dietary changes.
Combining Massage and Nutrition
Massage therapy can be used to decrease inflammation in the body and relieve painful muscles. When you combine the powers of massage therapy with the powers of a low inflammation diet, you can start to see a transformation. As inflammation decreases and the muscles begin to relax with regular therapy, patients can increase their mobility and their quality of life.
