Nutrition Plans and Supplement Support

Shoar chiropractors will develop a personalized treatment and diet plan that addresses the underlying needs of your body along with any existing health conditions.

Improve Your Health with Proper Nutrition

Good nutrition and healthy foods can help optimize your overall body function and accelerate your healing from illness, injury, and other health setbacks. Nutrition plans and supplement support from your chiropractor can help you achieve better overall health and balance in your body. Your chiropractor will work with you on developing an individualized nutrition plan that brings you closer to your health goals and that addresses your unique health needs.

Proper nutrition can help you maintain a normal weight so you can move around with ease and avoid placing undue pressure on your joints. A healthy diet also promotes normal cellular growth and function so damaged ligaments, muscles, and other soft tissues can repair themselves more easily. Some foods even offer antioxidative properties that ward off inflammation, while others help detox your body and remove harmful toxins interfering with the body’s healing process.

Your chiropractor may provide nutrition counseling, assessment, and therapy so you can replace unhealthy foods and eating habits with healthier options that boost your energy, immunity, and overall health. Nutritional supplements are also available to support your vitamin and mineral needs if you’re unable to meet daily requirements through diet alone. Nutrition plans are customized for each patient and can be adjusted as needed.

Did you know?

Inflammation is a major contributing factor to serious diseases and health conditions including type 2 diabetes, obesity, arthritis, chronic back pain, tendonitis, and mental health disorders like anxiety and depression. But eating foods packed with nutrients and compounds that reduce inflammation can lower your risk for developing these types of health conditions.

Nutritional supplementation may help reduce chronic pain and headaches and improve metabolic syndrome. Supplementation may also drive weight loss and help lessen symptoms of autoimmune disorders. Your chiropractor may combine nutritional and supplement support with spinal adjustments and exercise therapy to support optimal functioning.

Unhealthy foods such as fried foods, sugary pastries, and processed foods can often make you feel sluggish and tired, and drive inflammation, which contributes to symptoms like back pain, neck pain, and headaches. Cutting these foods from your diet can improve your immune system function and make you feel better as a whole on a regular basis.

Frequently Asked Questions about Nutrition Plans

Do I need nutritional supplements if I’m already eating healthy foods?

Supplementation can give your body the needed daily amount of vitamins and minerals that you may not be getting due to factors such as diet, accessibility, or food quality. For instance, fish oil supplements can benefit those who lack access to fresh, wild-caught fatty fish like salmon, tuna, and mackerel. Vitamin B12 can benefit those who avoid eating meat, shellfish, or dairy due to dietary restrictions or food sensitivities, or who have difficulty absorbing B12 from the food they eat.

What are some benefits of nutritional support?

Eating healthy foods allows you to benefit from increased energy, better mental clarity, and improved productivity. Good nutrition can help prevent fatigue and feelings of sluggishness, and naturally, reduce pain caused by herniated discs and degenerative disc disease.

Will my chiropractor put me on a strict diet?

Your chiropractor will develop a personalized treatment and diet plan that addresses the underlying needs of your body along with any existing health conditions. While you may not be expected to adhere to a strict or limited diet, your doctor may urge you to eat certain foods that are known to reduce pain and promote healing.
