The S.A.D. is sad for many reasons. Inflammation. Obesity. Pain.

Back pain may benefit as well from an anti-inflammatory diet, so Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC encourages an anti-inflammatory diet for pain relief and even neurological recovery when spinal nerves are in pain and are inflamed which results in La Grande back pain and neck pain, etc. Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC oversees the relief of back pain and neck pain with a complete chiropractic treatment plan of spinal manipulation, Cox® Technic, exercise and nutritional diet.

Diet may play a role in obesity and chronic pain, not just in weight-bearing joints but other parts of the body, too. Poor diet many times adds to obesity, influences the immune system unfavorably, and delays recovery from inflammatory injury. An anti-inflammatory diet in place of a pharmacological intervention after injury may well assist these issues when replaced for the Standard American Diet. (1) La Grande chiropractic patients with chronic pain often discover some relief with healthier eating choices.


A review of 172 studies advises that effects of certain foods are comparable to drug management therapy for chronic pain. Natural compounds like the phenolic compounds in extra virgin olive oil are such. Carbohydrates with low glycemic indices consumed three times a day alongside fruits and vegetables, yogurt, red wine are good daily. Fish and legumes, white meat, eggs and cheese and red meats can be interspersed weekly. It’s not bad to have sweets occasionally! (2) That makes it easier to achieve a diet change! Eating like this helps manage inflammation/oxidative stress that results in pain relief.  


A well-known diet referred to as the ketogenic diet may be beneficial for reducing inflammation and promoting neuroprotection, protection of the nerves and even neurological recovery of spinal cord injury if started early after the injury. (3) Protecting and regenerating damaged, inflamed nerves is significant in the care of chronic pain and La Grande back pain at Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC. Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC is eager to disclose that  anti-inflammatory diets foster patients’ healing from disc herniations and other spine related injuries.
