Nutrition and Chiropractic Care: EP Functional Specialists

Nutrition and Chiropractic Care: Chiropractic care treats the body as a whole. It can relieve and alleviate ailments from injuries, conditions, or diseases to help maintain optimal health. A treatment plan includes nutrition recommendations to support the body’s systems, reduce inflammation responses, build muscle and bone strength, and maintain chiropractic adjustments.

Nutrition and Chiropractic Care: EP Functional Specialists

Nutrition and Chiropractic Care

Individuals can influence musculoskeletal system health by balancing what they consume. If food choices are unhealthy, the benefits of chiropractic may be lessened from the negative effects of unhealthy foods on the body.

Muscle Repair

Muscle injuries are common from normal wear and tear, work, sports, and personal injuries. Calorie-heavy foods can lead to increased weight. Increased weight puts extra stress on the body as it is healing, making the healing process last longer and less effective. A recommended nutritional plan to build muscle strength around the injured areas will supplement chiropractic care.

  • Adding protein-rich foods increases muscle building and repair.
  • Foods include sweet potatoes, salmon, eggs, spinach, bananas, nuts, and seeds.

Bone Health

Misalignment, imbalances, and injuries can be caused in part by weakness in various bones.

  • Calcium is integral in improving bone strength.
  • Foods high in calcium can benefit chiropractic adjustments by strengthening the skeletal system.
  • A balanced intake of calcium and magnesium helps build bone strength and decreases the chances of developing osteoporosis.
  • Magnesium can be found in almonds, spinach, avocado, cashews, and bananas.

Digestion

Chiropractic treatments also help promote healthy digestion by relieving tension in the stomach and helping to restore proper function in the organs and muscles. Regular chiropractic has been shown to reduce symptoms associated with constipation, bloating, diarrhea, nausea, irritable bowel syndrome -IBS, Crohn’s disease, colitis, GERD – Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease, and vomiting.

  • Foods that help maintain a healthy gut include brown rice, beans, oats, and fruits and vegetables.

Respiratory Health

Breathing problems come in various forms depending on the individual and their case. The ribs, upper chest, and neck muscles all support breathing. Stress can cause rapid and shallow breathing that overworks these muscles. Breathing problems often correlate with other health issues, including back and neck pain, poor digestion, fatigue, and tension headaches.ย Chiropractic pinpoints subluxations or undue interruption of the nerve signals and corrects any misalignments so that nerve signals flow properly.

  • Foods that help with lung health include tomatoes, apples, berries, and broccoli.

Nervous System Health

Chiropractic focuses on restoring the body to optimal function so that it can heal through normal nervous system function. Treatment resets the vertebrae into proper alignment, reducing swelling, blockages, and nerve stress, allowing the nervous system to function at full capacity.

  • Foods that can help are dark chocolate, spinach, avocados, garlic, and asparagus.

Circulatory System

Chiropractic adjustments increase blood circulation. Adjustments and massage loosen the muscles attached to the specific areas, which also promotes the flow and movement of waste in the lymphatic system in and out of specific areas.

  • Foods that help with circulation include onions, beets, citrus fruits, tomatoes, walnuts, and fatty fish.

Nutrition and chiropractic care go hand in hand. When the body gets the nutrition it needs, it works more efficiently.

An unhealthy diet can cause sluggishness, low energy, and increase inflammatory responses that can lead to chronic conditions. A nutritionist can create a personalized nutrition plan to maximize the benefits as they work together to improve overall health and wellness.
