Dietary Management of Backache

Dietary Management of Backache

Damage to spinal discs, pressure on nerves, misalignment or inflammation of joints, damaged ligaments, or diseased vertebrae can all lead to backache. Other common causes include pregnancy, a bad sitting posture, a bed which does not support your body correctly, a job which involves lifting heavy objects, or suddenly taking up a new sporting activity. A good chiropractor or osteopath should be able to cure most forms of backache, but in the long term a healthy diet may prevent it occurring in the first place.

There are no nutritional ‘cure’ for backache, though the increased strain thatobesity puts on the spine may contribute to the problem and a sensible programme of diet and exercise to lose weight may help to ease the pain.

Foods to avoid

Certain food remedies have been found beneficial in the treatment of backache.

Persistent backache is a common problem, especially with increasing age. But it is important to consult your doctor for a proper diagnosis, as the pain could be the symptom of a more serious disorder, such as osteoporosis or, in rare cases, cancer.
