Why is nutrition such an important aspect of achieving health and even your recovery with respect to musculoskeletal/chiropractic problems? Why is a chiropractor interested in nutritional staus of his patients?
Simply, if your body does not have the appropriate nutrients or balanced biochemistry your healing response is slow or minimal.

Here are some examples:
 
1. Blood sugar imbalances such as hypoglycemia or insulin resistance can lead to slowed healing of your ligaments, discs, cartilage and tendons. These imbalances may even lead to headaches.
2. Smoking results in decreased available Vitamin C which slows healing of your tissues especially, collagen fibers that make up many of your connective tissues. Additionally, lack of Vitamin C decreases immune system response and tendency for greater inflammation.
3. Imbalances of fats in your diet namely omega-6 and omega-3 can lead to increased inflammation which will slow down your recovery time, lead to arthritic and fibromyalgia symptoms.
4. Lack of certain antioxidants can cause decreased fat burning abilities, allergic inflammation, immune system imbalances,  decresed mental function, improper liver detoxification and much more.
 
Are you beginning to get the idea? Of course some patients problems will be more involved than others and not everyone will need a nutritional analysis and/or treatment. For those patients truly interested in improving their health we do offer nutritional appoinments and evaluation. Please refer to our section under services for further information on these appointments or consult our office at 480-732-0911. Look under our "Newsletter" section for other health problems that can be balanced naturally.
