We are discussing nutrition and chronic musculoskeletal pain. This episode is an update because if you went into PubMed and looked for a systematic review or a meta-analysis on how diet and nutrition influence or impact chronic musculoskeletal pain, you would have only found one review. I'm excited to introduce you to a researcher who is also a physiotherapist who has completed the second systematic review. It was available in the March 2020 Journal of Clinical Medicine. It's an open access paper. The title of that review is Do Nutritional Factors Interact with Chronic Musculoskeletal Pain? A Systematic Review.
My expert guest is Omer Elma. He has been a physiotherapist since 2014 and he is pursuing his PhD with the Pain In Motion research group with a focus on the link between chronic musculoskeletal pain and nutrition. We'll discuss the findings of his systematic review that investigated the interaction between nutrition and chronic musculoskeletal pain. The mechanisms of action between nutrition and pain, how diet and nutrition interact with central pain processing mechanisms. The role of the gut microbiome and its interaction between nutrition and pain. Finally, how nutritional factors affect the sensitization of the central nervous system. Let's meet Omer Elma and look at how nutrition factors influence musculoskeletal pain.
