Managing Post-Exercise Inflammation - From Ibuprofen to Cherries
Presented by: Roberta Anding, MS, RD, LD, CDE, CSSD
March 30: 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. (Salon VI-VII)
Chronic inflammation in athletes, as a result of training or injury, is often treated with NSAIDS. Although generally recognized as safe, long term use may have deleterious consequences including gastrointestinal and renal complications. This session will examine the alternatives to the management of chronic inflammation—including incorporating anti-inflammatory compounds in the diet such as those found in tart cherries (in addition to many other foods), and inform athletic trainers on how to make the best recommendations for their athletes.
