Food supplementation and herbal medicine as a "weapon" for pain and inflammation
What shows us the latest evidence in the neuro-musculoskeletal condition.
The role of osteopathy in acute or chronic cases is (among others) to decrease pain and inflammation, stimulating healing and tissue repair.
According to Ordinance n.º 207-B/2014, the osteopath must be able to “provide information to users and the public with a view to promoting health and preventing diseases, namely through counseling on correct postures, physical exercise and eating habits”.
Nutritional deficiencies can have a strong correlation with musculoskeletal pain and in that an anti-inflammatory diet can be the first and biggest step towards improving our ability to regenerate and recover. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are widely used in medicine as a treatment for virtually all musculoskeletal disorders, but other therapeutic approaches, such as dietary supplementation, may be advised by osteopaths as a way to complement this entire recovery process.
