Nutritional Support for the Three Phases of Care
Number 101. For professional use only
ABSTRACT: Nutritional support for the Three Phases of Care approach to injury recovery optimizes the biochemical pathways associated with the body’s healing process. Each phase of the healing process (acute, sub-acute, and chronic) can best be supported by therapeutic strategies that address the critical aspects of the phase. For example, during the acute phase a patient would most benefit from inflammation modulation, whereas during the sub-acute and chronic phases the emphasis shifts to tissue repair and support for improved range of motion. Research demonstrates that natural healing systems, such as chiropractic and clinical nutrition, promote healing and wellness with very little associated health risks. Conventional treatment and management approaches for injury and chronic conditions non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), corticosteroids and muscle relaxants have potential for serious adverse side effects. Combining clinical nutrition with chiropractic care offers a safe and effective approach to injury recovery and long-term wellness care.
