10 Foods That Help To Reduce Back Pain

By: Gideon |Time : August 02, 2019, 12:35:04 PM
Those suffering from chronic back pain can attest to the fact that it is a royal pain in the back (pun intended).

It literally alters your life as it keeps you away from doing a lot of physical activities and even keeps you from spending time with the people you love, or even from getting a good night’s sleep.


The good news is that there are actually plenty of foods that reduce back pain. Countless foods, especially vegetables and fruit, are full of anti-inflammatory properties, which work to hit the sweet spot and reduce swelling. This, in turn, will help reduce your back pain, or any chronic pain you’re having, for that matter.

In this article, we have listed 10 foods in your kitchen or refrigerator that you never knew until now that they could help with your back pain.

Olive oil
Already known to possess several health benefits, it has anti-inflammatory capabilities and the fact that it’s filled with antioxidants, one of which is something called oleocanthal. Oleocanthal is a chemical that’s basically been shown to work like ibuprofen for pain in the body so drizzle olive oil onto your salad or your frying pan before you cook something.

Dairy products
Dairy products like milk, cheese and yogurt are all good sources of calcium which helps you to maintain and strengthen your bone mass.

Ginger
Ginger contains extremely powerful anti-inflammatories called gingerols which have been proven to significantly reduce pain in arthritic individuals.

Tumeric
Turmeric contains curcumin which is an incredibly powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent.

Coffee
Coffee contains anti-inflammatories such as polyphenols that work to reduce pain. Already, we discussed the health benefits of drinking hot coffee.

Salmon
Salmon is packed with the omega 3 fatty acid, a healthy fat known to help those living with chronic pain. This tasty fish also has calcitonin, which has been shown to reduce inflammation in joints.

Nuts
Almonds, pecans, walnuts, and brazil nuts are all excellent nut options if you’re looking for solid sources of anti-inflammatories.

Thyme
Although scientists don’t fully understand how it works, thyme can essentially reduce your perception of pain, acting as a natural painkiller.

Red grapes
Red grapes contain an anti-inflammatory called resveratrol, a compound also found in other berries and peanuts (but apparently not in green grapes), which has been found to fight pain.

Kale
Generally, vegetables are good for your back because they have anti-inflammatory properties but the greener the vegetable, the better for you and your back. Consuming a kale salad is an easy way to throw some green and relief into your life.
