Inflammation is a buzzword for a good reason
It is found at the root of many health conditions. While a symptom of some conditions, it is also a cause of others, meaning that inflammation is both a root and a node in a network that keeps you tied down with pain. At our office in Fremont, we work with our clients to focus on minimizing chronic inflammation with natural techniques. Read on to find out how.
Managing chronic inflammation
- Chiropractic: chiropractic's direct role in inflammation management involves adjustments which have been shown to reduce the body's production of key inflammatory cytokines.
- Nutrition: perhaps the most direct way you can control your symptoms is to choose a non-inflammatory diet. While there are many different versions that can be tailored to the individual, this essentially means consuming ingredients packed with anti-inflammatory properties such as omega-3 fatty acids, and cutting out the foods that contribute to the body's inflammatory response, such as processed meat, sugar, bad fats, cigarettes and alcohol.
- Exercise: inflammation is potent because, by limiting your range of motion and capacity for exercise, it is limiting the efficacy one of your most potent arthritis-fighting tools: simple movement. Healthy joints need to be articulated and used regularly.
Our hands-on treatment frees joints that are locked up with inflammation, allowing you to move with a lesser degree of pain. Living happily with inflammation is more than a possibility: it could be your reality with the right attention to detail and a proactive plan. At Scorca Chiropractic Center, we are here for you every step of the way.
