Importance of a Proper Diet
Improving symptoms through nutritional therapy can avoid the need for pharmacological intervention and more invasive treatment options. A proper diet is essential to spinal health and can drastically affect your ability to recover or heal damages or injury to the spine. Many people are unaware that spine specialist, chiropractors and other related health professionals implement nutritional guidance or counseling as part of a comprehensive chiropractic treatment plan.
The Link Between Chiropractic’s and Diet
Treatment or therapeutic measures a chiropractor may implement to treat spinal conditions or symptoms related to inflammation, autoimmune anomalies, arthritis, scoliosis, neuritis or osteoarthritis often include dietary or nutritional recommendations.
Dietary changes can effect positive change in the body. Modifying diet may improve inflammation, which in turn can reduce related pain symptoms. It is also important to note that many of our patients at Premier Medical are women experiencing other health issues, such as menopause and premenstrual syndromes. Dietary guidance and nutritional counseling can have profound effects on overlapping conditions and can easily be targeted directly with the help of one of Premier Medical’s qualified health professionals.
Dietary and Nutritional Recommendations
Often a medical professional will recommend a high protein diet for those who aim to build muscle helpful for people with a need to protect the spine due to previous injury or preventative care. Another common diet would aim to improve balanced nutrition to reduce body mass index as it related to pressure on the spinal column. Another common recommendation offered in nutritional guidance and counseling would be to increase calcium.
At Premier Medical we know that a proper diet can have innumerable secondary benefits that aid in treating or acting as preventative care for conditions and disease associated with bone and spinal health. However, at Premier Medical we also understand that changes in diet can only be effective if they are practical for the specific person.
