Most cases of back pain can also be managed by making lifestyle changes, and improvements to your diet by adding or omitting certain types of food. By avoiding food that can trigger inflammation such as sugary food, refined flour, red meat and food cooked in vegetable oil, cutting down on alcohol and tobacco and by eating a healthy, balanced diet, you can manage your pain better. Here are some nutrient rich foods you can incorporate to your daily diet which will help ease your pain. It is, however, recommended that you consult a doctor in case your back pain gets worse or does not go away.
The Atkins diet, the Keto diet, the Alkaline diet, the Raw food diet - you name it, there are tons of diets out there with most proclaiming various health benefits.
