During the 2008-2009 season I did alot of research on the proper foods to ingest when recovery from an injury.
I also discovered many common foods to avoid because they may be a catalyst to inflammation, or may irritate the nervous system which will increase pain perception.
As always this may not be true for each individual, however the list of beneficial foods and foods to avoid is something to take into consideration when eating throughout one's recovery phase.
IMPORTANT FOOD TO AVOID
• Pork, red meat
• Whole milk, Cheese, cream, yogurt
• Oranges, bananas
