Can Petai Cause Neck Pain?
Doctors whether petai can cause neck pain?
Thank you for the question.
Neck pain most often occurs due to muscle aches. This muscle pain can be triggered by many factors, ranging from injuries during exercise, malnutrition, body position that is not ergonomic when active, aging, fatigue, and so on. Other factors, such as neck nerve nerves, torticollis, metabolic disorders, lymphadenitis, viral or bacterial infections, brain tumors, psychological disorders, discharged injuries, fibromyalgia, etc. can also trigger neck pain.
Petai (Parkia speciosa) according to a variety of literature is rich in nutrients that are good for health, including protein, fat, carbohydrates, fiber, calcium, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, and iron. Not only that, in petai also contained phenols, flavonoids, retinol, and terpenoids which are antioxidants so it is good for warding off free radicals. With this nutritional content, as long as it is consumed properly, petai should not directly trigger neck pain as you are worried. In fact, the antioxidant content is useful in increasing the pain threshold (antinociceptive properties), so that pain in the neck can be reduced.
If you feel pain in the neck that is quite disturbing, you should try to apply the pain relief cream or warm compresses to your neck. Do not forget, multiply rest, avoid using a higher pillow, also avoid the habit of breaking or ringing the neck, regular exercise, and always live a healthy lifestyle. You can check yourself directly to the doctor or neurologist if the pain still does not improve with the above efforts.
Hope this helps ...
