Now that fall has arrived, it’s time for haunted mazes, carving pumpkins, and eating pumpkin! That last one might sound a bit off (minus eating pumpkin pie), but eating pumpkin comes with a lot of health benefits.
- Pumpkin contains Vitamin A which strengthens your skin, teeth, and bones.
- Pumpkin is jam packed with fiber. Fiber especially helps your spine because it helps the digestive system. Constipation can put pressure on your back and enhance pain and cause more back problems.
- Pumpkin is low in calories. It’s important to eat foods in low calories because eating foods with high calories can lead to being overweight which puts pressure on the back and causes pain.
If you’re experiencing any back pain, call Montesano Spine and Sport today.
