07 Jul 3 Ways to Prompt Spinal Nerve Regrowth
Spinal nerves are so important that we wouldn’t be able to function without them. So when a nerve is damaged, it’s a serious deal. One that requires a proactive approach to treatment and regrowth. In this article, we will discuss some tips and recommendations for promoting nerve regeneration after you have sustained damage to a nerve in the spine.
Rest & Time
The best thing you can do after your spine surgery is give your body the time and rest it needs to work its healing magic. Your body’s internal healing mechanisms will do everything it can to rebuild damaged nerves and tissues after a procedure – you just need to give your body everything you can to promote this natural process.
A big factor in your body’s ability to naturally heal and regenerate is your diet. If you eat nothing but junk, sugary drinks, and processed foods, your body won’t have as much fuel to do its job. Eating a balanced diet with plenty of vegetables and protein goes a long way.
There are also various prescription medications that can help stimulate nerve regrowth and regeneration after your procedure. Talk to your doctor to see if they recommend any medications to stimulate nerve regrowth after surgery.
It is important to remember that once a spinal nerve has been completely severed or damaged beyond a certain point, nerve regeneration is nearly impossible.
