Knee Osteoarthritis: Foods That Reduce Swelling – Salads

April 1, 2011
Salad

Salad

Sigh.  Salad.  I know.  Every time it comes to changing your diet salads are always a recommendation.  Why can’t it be lobster, or steak, or chocolate milkshakes?

Salads are always recommended for healthy eating because they are good for you.  Spinach, dark green lettuce, tomatoes, celery, carrots, and radishes are rich in Vitamin C and other antioxidants.  These are nutrients that reduce swelling, as well as offer a host of other healthy side effects.

Eating salads can help reduce swelling and reduce the amount of weight you are carrying around.  The less you weigh the better your knees will feel.  So make salads as much a part of your knee osteoarthritis treatment program as medications and physical therapy.  What’s easier, eating a salad or figuring out how much your prescription  co-pay should be if your deductible hasn’t been met?
