Are You Hurt? Understanding inflammation
Are you hurt and need to see a Charlotte chiropractor for treatment of your joint inflammation? A common misconception about inflammation is that it is bad. This is probably because of all the medication adds for anti-inflammatory drugs. Inflammation is kind of like ice cream… It is can be good for you, unless you have too much. Inflammation is the process that our body uses as protection against physical damage or germs, allowing the affected part to begin healing. For example, if you were to accidently bang your thumb with a hammer, inflammation brings fluids that will provide healing and protection for your thumb and hand. Conversely, there are times when inflammation becomes self-perpetuating, and your body will produce more inflammation, in response to the existing inflammation. When this happens, inflammation no longer helps to heal, it becomes a source of chronic pain.
Chronic inflammation is the most common cause of every degenerative disease we face today. Regrettably, the most common attempt to deal with inflammation is the use of over the counter medications. All of these medications have health threatening side effects, the most common in use are aspirin, ibuprofen, and acetaminophen. These medications are proven to cause digestive problems such as heartburn, indigestion, nausea, diarrhea and stomach pain. Some patients have experienced GI bleeds, kidney disorders, and increased risk for stroke and heart disease.
Instead of taking medication, the healthiest and a more natural solution is to let a Charlotte chiropractor treat the cause of the chronic inflammation. Quite often, the solution is as simple as changing your diet. Patients who suffer with chronic inflammation should learn to eat foods which are naturally anti-inflammatory, such as the following:
- Wild caught fish
- Organic free range meat
- Omega 3 fats
