The S.A.D. is sad on so many levels.
Inflammation. Obesity. Pain. S.A.D. being the Standard American Diet may be addressed

treatment plan of spinal manipulation, Cox® Technic, exercise and nutritional

Sitka DIET AND INFLAMMATION
Diet may play a role in obesity and chronic
pain, not just in weight-bearing joints but other parts of the body, too. Poor diet often adds to obesity, affects
the immune system unfavorably, and lengthens
recovery from inflammatory injury. A diet that is anti-inflammatory in
nature in place of a pharmacological intervention after injury may well help with
these concerns when swapped
for the Standard American Diet. (1) Sitka chiropractic patients
with chronic pain often find some relief with wiser
A review of 172 papers suggests
that effects 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 daily. Fish and legumes, white meat, eggs and
cheese and red meats can be interspersed weekly. It’s
not bad to have sweets on occasion! (2) Such a treat
makes it easier to manage
a diet change! Eating like this facilitates
inflammation/oxidative stress that results in pain relief.
DIET CHANGE FOR NEUROLOGICAL REPAIR
A fashionable diet called the ketogenic diet may be beneficial for lessening
inflammation and fostering 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 important
in the treatment of chronic pain and Sitka back pain at
Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka is excited to share
that anti-inflammatory diets foster patients’ healing from disc herniations and other
