Many factors contribute to the health of your spine. You may not be aware that the food you eat can be one of those contributing factors. It is important for your spinal health to have a diet that provides you with the proper nutrients to keep your body functioning correctly.
Calcium is one of the essential nutrients that your body needs to keep your spine healthy. Calcium works to keep your bones strong and helps to prevent things such as osteoporosis, which can cause your bones to become brittle with age. Adding foods that contain dairy, such as cheese and yogurt, along with milk, is a good way to increase your calcium intake. Other foods such as leafy vegetables, fish, and legumes are other excellent sources of calcium that you can add to your diet to improve your spinal health.
Adding foods that contain vitamin D is also a good idea. Vitamin D works with your body to help it absorb the calcium you are ingesting properly. To get a good amount of vitamin D in your diet, consider adding whole eggs and milk containing vitamin D. You can also get a good amount of vitamin D by spending time in the sun daily.
Magnesium is another important mineral that contributes to your spinal health. Magnesium helps the muscles in your body function properly. You can add magnesium by eating whole grains, seeds, beans, vegetables, and fruits.
Our chiropractors are here not only to help realign your spine, but they can also help by suggesting a diet plan to make sure you are getting all of the nutrients you need to keep your spine healthy.
Treatment for Back Pain
Along with a proper diet, chiropractic care can also help with your spinal health. When your spine is in the appropriate alignment, it not only helps with back pain, it also improves your overall health. When your spine is out of alignment, it can cause many medical issues such as back pain, migraines, and difficulty with your overall mobility.
Our chiropractors are able to provide you with a non-surgical form of relief through chiropractic care. Through manual spinal manipulations, we are able to improve the overall health of your spine and nervous system by manipulating the spine by hand back into proper alignment.
Many people find immediate relief after undergoing spinal manipulation. This treatment can help provide relief for symptoms such as headaches, knee, and back pain as well as improve your overall bodily function. Chiropractic manipulation to readjust the spine is available for patients of all ages, young and old. We also offer regenerative medicine, which is another all-natural form of treatment that we can discuss in addition to chiropractic care to treat your symptoms.
