A change in your diet be the newest prescription for beating pain.
A study just released from the British Medical Journal says a few foods might make a big difference in easing what hurts, especially if you experience knee pain.
It turns out that the latest pain-fighting foods in the study were found to be fruits and vegetables, as well as beans, nuts and whole grains.
Researchers found that those who ate more of those foods reported less joint pain in the knees.
These foods are known to fight inflammation, which may be part of why they work to ease aches and pains, but this study says what really makes them effective is that they are high in fiber.
As part of this trial researchers looked at 5,000 adults. Those who were the top fiber eaters, about 22-27 grams a day, reported 30 to 60 percent less knee pain compared to those who ate a lot less, about only 9 to 14 grams. It's suggested you get 21 to 38 grams a day.
The average person eats less than 8 grams a day.
A good bowl of cereal in the morning might give you five grams of fiber in a cup. So maybe have a couple of good bowls of cereal or adjust your diet accordingly.
