#PAINFREENATION

Though silly as they may seem, hashtags have become a popular way of bringing attention to causes that matter, and in the chiropractic community bringing pain relief to patients without contributing to the prescription pill problems is definitely one of those causes.


  Thomas Edison once said, "The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease." Chiropractors work under the same concept, to treat people by adjusting the main issue and providing preventative care, instead of just treating the symptoms over and over again. The United States of America is going through a prescription medication epidemic. Many medical doctors only focus on treating your symptoms with medication.

  It is estimated that there are between 26.4 million and 36 million people suffering with opiate abuse worldwide, of which 2.1 million of those people reside in the United States. This statistic was found in 2012, imagine where the numbers could be at now. Though there are many contributors to this issue, the biggest being medical doctors constantly prescribing various pain medications. More than 259 million prescriptions were written in the United States for Vicodin, OxyContin and other opioid painkillers in 2012 - that is enough for every American adult to have a bottle of pills. These harsh statistics are why the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has declared the prescription pill abuse in our country as an "epidemic."

  At Cobb Rehab & Wellness, Dr. Cobb focuses on holistic pain relief around adjusting subluxations within the spine and treating the problem, not by attempting to mask the pain by referring to pain management specialists.

Sugar, carbohydrates, and why they're increasing your daily pain.

You always hear from medical professionals to eat correctly, but rarely are you given an explanation as to why. Obviously to be healthy is a priority, but what is it about certain foods that makes them either good or bad for you?


In our day to day work life at Cobb Rehab and Wellness we focus on helping those in pain, and we have found that what they eat can play a huge factor when dealing with both acute and chronic pain. Sugars and simple carbohydrates cause most issues when it comes to dealing with pain, and that’s because they both increase inflammation in the system.


Inflammation is our body’s way of protecting itself when it’s injured, such as closing your finger in a car door, or stubbing your toe, but when we overload our systems with sugars our body goes into protection mode as well. The excess glucose, or sugar, starts the inflammation process throughout the body, and for those suffering from chronic pain and have injuries within the body this inflammation can increase that pain significantly.


What you eat can fuel or cool inflammation, a key driver of heart disease, diabetes, and other chronic conditions

Now that we've discussed what should be cut out of one's diet in order to avoid inflammation, here's a list of foods that are helpful in decreasing inflammation in the body:

Healthy fats + Omega 3’s 
Fatty, oily fishes such as salmon, tuna, and trout; Nuts such as Almonds and Walnuts; Olive Oil
Whole grains
By substituting white breads with whole grains, you introduce good carbohydrates into your system. These good carbohydrates don't turn into sugars in the same way that simple carbohydrates do, instead the body works to digest these grains and uses them for energy.
Vitamin E
Dark, leafy greens such as Spinach and Kale; Almonds
Anti-oxidant enriched foods
Beets, blueberries, red berries, fish, nuts, etc
