Know What to Eat: Speed Your Recovery with Good Nutrition

Aug 29, 2016

After an accident or injury, it’s important to encourage your body’s natural healing process with good nutrition. In addition to the treatments provided by our Atlanta orthopedic doctors, consider incorporating these foods into your regular diet to support your recovery.

Try these tips:

  • Aid muscle repair with protein-rich foods like eggs, yogurt, salmon, chicken, beans, and nuts.
  • Reduce inflammation after injury with foods containing vitamin C, which can be found in citrus fruits, strawberries, broccoli, tomatoes, and spinach.
  • Help broken bones heal faster by incorporating calcium-rich foods like kefir, dark leafy greens, and sea vegetables.

 

Support the formation of healthy new cells by increasing your vitamin A intake of colorful plant foods, such as sweet potatoes, carrots, cantaloupe, mangoes, kale, and chard. Contact the AICA Orthopedics clinic or call (404) 855-2141 today to schedule a consultation.
