Nutrition is often one of the first interventions that I recommend for pain relief, especially if you have pain from an inflammatory disease such as fibromyalgia, CRPS, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, or even headaches.

When it comes to implementing it into a physical therapy practice, nutrition is very important because most of the patients that are being treated are people who have chronic pain or other types of pain syndromes.
