Eat Smart to Manage Your Arthritis

At Sarasota Orthopedic Associates, we see so many patients of all ages with arthritis on a daily basis and unfortunately, it’s a condition most of us will eventually experience. The CDC (Center for Disease Control) published these alarming statistics:

While there is no current cure, there are ways to relieve the inflammation and discomfort accompanying arthritis. The most important protocol you are able to control is diet.

Foods to avoid are sugar, alcohol, MSG, white carbohydrates, red meat, trans-fats (found in many packaged foods … read the labels!), tomatoes, and fatty acids (found in certain oils and dressings).

Your best diet to help contain inflammation should include ginger, walnuts, red bell peppers, carrots, beans, fish, fiber, watermelon, flax seed, apples, cherries, and berries. Read more here for more ways to manage your arthritis.
