Ottawa 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 as
well. Poor diet often contributes to obesity, impacts
the immune system unfavorably, and delays
recovery from inflammatory injury. A diet that is anti-inflammatory in
nature instead of a pharmacological intervention after injury may well help with
these issues when exchanged
for the Standard American Diet. (1) Ottawa chiropractic patients

inflammation and fostering neuroprotection,
protection of the nerves and even neurological recovery of spinal cord injury
if initiated in a timely manner after the injury. (3)
