Anti-inflammatory Diet and Chronic Pain

While a special anti-inflammatory diet can be beneficial for everyone (especially when it comes to preventing arthritis, cardiovascular problems, and other diseases), it’s particularly helpful for those who suffer from chronic back pain. The direct link between nutrient intake and pain management often goes overlooked, but it’s been scientifically proven that some foods can cause inflammation levels to swell while others create drastic improvement.
