Omega-3 fish oil can help back, neck, and joint stability, particularly if you have pain from a car accident.
What are EPA and DHA?
Omega-3 fatty acids fall into two major categories: plant derived (flaxseed) and marine derived (fish). Research has found the most beneficial omega-3s in fish oil are eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). EPA supports cardiovascular, circulatory, and mood health, and can be helpful to the immune system. DHA is an important foundation for cells in the brain, nervous system, and eyes. As a result, it helps cognition, mood, fetal and infant development, and a health pregnancy.
Fish Oil: A Natural Mobility Enhancer that Reduces Pain
Back and neck pain often have many different causes. But typically underlying factor is inflammation. Studies have found that Omega-3 fatty address the inflammatory pathways with safe and positive effects. Omega-3s also promote key anti-inflammatory pathways in the body that improve pain and inflammation. Experts generally recommend 1 g of EPA+DHA per day for proactive support. For instance, if the label on the bottle says a pill contains 650 mg of EPA and 450 mg of DHA, this would be approximately 1 g of EPA+DHA.
In summary, Omega-3 fish oil promotes key anti-inflammatory pathways, promotes joint mobility and flexibility, and is safe for long term use. Chiropractors commonly recommend Omega-3 fish oil and some doctors recommend Omega-3 fish oil for a number of things, including recovery from concussions.
