Diet is associated with pain in both curative and causative relationships. The great majority of pain syndromes are associated with chronic inflammation. Anti- inflammatory foods and dietary patterns have been used successfully to treat chronic pain syndromes. Food sensitivities and nutrient deficiencies are associated with common pain syndromes. Clinicians should have a high degree of awareness of the role of diet in the amelioration and exacerbation of pain.
