Nutrition interventions have a significant effect on pain reduction.

Optimizing dietary intake effects chronic pain:

  1. Dietary intake can enhance the function of the nervous, immune, and endocrine systems, directly impacting pain experiences.
  2. Losing or maintaining weight reduces the load on joints and reduces meta-inflammation.
  3. Dietary intake and weight status impacts on the risk and/or severity of other chronic diseases (e.g., cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and poor mental health, including anxiety and depression), often occurring concurrently with chronic pain.

Sub-optimal dietary intake can be the result of a number of factors which need to be addressed:

  1. Limited/reduced mobility and functional strength can affect a person’s ability to shop, cook and prepare meals.
  2. Mental health co-morbidities and feelings of isolation (common in chronic pain) can lead to intakes of low dietary quality with increased comfort eating and/or lack of meaning around mealtimes.
  3. Lack of sleep leading to irregular eating habits.

Injury recovery can be influenced by nutrition interventions.

  1. During the “Proliferation Phase” of an acute injury, nutrition can play a role in supporting blood flow, nutrients required to support normal and faster regeneration of tissue and can also be used to help control chronic levels of inflammation and continue the process of removing unwanted debris around the site of injury.
  2. The “Remodeling Phase” of an injury can take last from a few weeks to years. Many tissues have quite poor blood supply thus an injury can take some time to heal and fully recover. Optimising your nutrition means you can supply the body with the correct nutrients that are going to support recovery and utilise nutrients and compounds that can enhance the recovery process.  Different tissues may require slightly different nutrient demands, thus targeted nutrition may help support specific injury rehabilitation.
  3. Nutrition has been proven to have a positive impact on surgical outcomes by aiding in tissue regeneration, reducing inflammation, reducing muscle atrophy, and decrease recovery time.

The guy is a wizard. I’ve been looking for a long time for someone that knows what they’re doing when it comes to backs. I will only see Spencer now going forward. If you decide to see someone else for back pain I’m not sure if you really want to get better. Whole clinic is great.

After many years of cervical spine discomfort and osteoarthritis most likely as a result of sitting at a desk for a good number of years, I found myself wanting to find an alternative means towards improving my spine health!My Naturopath Doctor recommended I see an Oesteopath namely Spencer Jean who came highly recommended.Spencer welcomed me into his office and the conversation began as to how to go about the process of correcting my posture! A plan of attack was formulated as to how to begin the process which was amazingly positive based on his confidence in doing so along with my part in wanting to do so!Today my posture has improved tremendously and I cannot thank Spencer enough for getting me to this point! The exercises are not difficult and As I see the progress, I am so much more encouraged in doing so! Thank you so much Spencer and the wonderful welcoming staff at Community Chiropractic Centre! I am truly blessed!
Spencer has been a great benefit to me, as he listens to what is wrong and works to help with that problem; so that I get some relief & can do more of my ADL. Before meeting Spencer & being under his care; I had very limited relief of discomfort. I would recommend anyone with chronic pain & skeletal ailments to give Spencer a try. He maybe just what you need in your life.
