Nutrition and Chiropractic Care

By Sara Butler

Nutrition and chiropractic care go hand in hand together. That may not be something that's obvious to a lot of people, but it's true. Here are just a few of the reasons why eating a healthy diet can help your body to function as it should and support the benefits of ongoing chiropractic care at The Joint Chiropractic.

Chiropractic and Nutrition

The chiropractors at The Joint aim to treat many different conditions with hands-on adjustments. But the overall idea behind chiropractic care is that by eliminating joint restrictions and dysfunctions that may be present, the body can communicate freely and work in the way it was made to -- healing itself along the way.

When your body is working to heal itself, nutrition is key to the process. In this sense, "you are what you eat" couldn't be truer! When you support your body with the vitamins and minerals it needs to heal, then you're supporting your continued health and wellness.

A Few Nutritional Tips

If you want to support your body in its healing processes and keep it that way, then there are a few nutritional tips that chiropractors suggest. These include:

  • Get enough calcium - Calcium intake is paramount to healthy, strong bones. To increase your calcium, you can have dairy products and other foods high in calcium such as darky, leafy greens.
  • Focus on protein - Many people see chiropractors due to injuries to their muscles, which makes eating enough protein essential. Protein helps to heal muscle tissue and rebuild it, so focus on lean sources of protein such as fish and chicken or vegetarian sources such as tofu, beans, milk, eggs, and nuts.
  • Hydrate - Many people view drinking water as a chore, but it doesn't need to be. In fact, if you want to promote healing and balance in your own body, then staying hydrated is a great way to do that. In fact, it helps to promote overall health and may give you more energy along the way, so discuss how to get the right amount of water you need each day with your chiropractor.
