There was a time when the physicians used to recommend NSAIDs (Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs), especially aspirin to reduce the risk of stroke or heart attack. However,
How Effective Is Nutrition Combined With Regenerative Treatment?
So, you have decided to opt for regenerative treatment towards permanent pain relief. Taking that decision is a good start, but by combining it with non-invasive holistic interventions such as nutritional advice and physiotherapy, you can enhance the effectiveness of the regenerative treatment. Patients often enquire to whether diet plays a vital role in improving the outcome of the regenerative treatment. The answer is definitely yes! Healthy eating has been linked with several factors including reduced inflammation, better sleep, lower stress levels, weight loss and improved mood and energy levels.
Regenerative therapy promotes the body’s healing mechanism by targeting the damaged or injured area and regenerating new cells. Good nutrition which includes all essential nutrients may prove more effective in helping with recovery post-treatment.
At Medica Pain Management, our registered nutritionist will assess your nutritional status and provide personalised recommendations, target and plans. We combine nutritional education with personalised dietary programmes to provide our patients with a comprehensive treatment plan which aims to help the recovery process along with improving overall diet quality. By utilising this combinational healthcare approach, that promotes quicker healing and regeneration, we provide hope for people to live long and healthy lives.
Nutritionists take a holistic approach that focuses on how people can use dietary choices to reduce their risk of disease. Having a good balance of foods and nutrients and by including foods with anti-inflammatory properties can protect the body from certain diseases and can help in healing and recovery from the regenerative treatments.
Our nutritional programme includes:
- Review of dietary history
- Nutritional assessment and diet analysis
- Identification of food sensitivities and nutritional deficiencies
- Personalised nutrition targets, goals & plans
- Tracking of nutrition goals and progress
- Review and modification of the plan as required
As an expert in food and nutrition, the registered nutritionist will help you to choose the right foods to eat and plan your menu to support your recovery process.
Personalised nutrition is the basis of good health and the key to preventing chronic illnesses and degenerative processes.
Seeking nutritional advice can have many benefits, including:
- Improved healing and recovery from sports “wear and tear” or even surgical procedures
- Weight loss
- Improved mood
- Increase in energy levels
- Improved sleep
- Improved sports performance
- Improvement in chronic conditions
- Stress relief
- Healthier eating habits
- Reduced risk of future medical conditions
- Enhanced immune support
Studies show that following an anti-inflammatory diet can help the regenerative process. In a study conducted by the University of Pittsburgh’s Department of Neurosurgery, an anti-inflammatory diet led to the reduction of symptoms. Nearly 70 per cent of patients were able to discontinue prescription medications.
Research studies reveal that chemical-based medicines have no regenerative ability. Contrarily, they interfere with the body’s self-healing ability and make it degenerative. Supplements like fish oil have been proven to promote more stem cells to enhance quick recovery. For instance, research studies reveal that omega-3 fatty acids in fish oils can combat arthritis pain. Our body produces most of the essential fats, except omega-3 and omega-6. By consuming oily fish twice a week or fish oil capsules of high-quality grade, you may get relief from arthritis pain. At times, physicians recommend omega-3 consumption instead of NSAIDs as it is comparatively safe.
Under the guidance of the medical team at Medica Pain Management, you will be able to adopt dietary changes to improve your diet quality and health. Through a nutrition programme as a combinational or standalone service, we will help you get back on track quickly so you can live your best life.
