Could nutrition help people with chronic pain?
12 December 2011
‘Pain’ is such a widespread health problem that analgesics outsell all other over-the-counter medications. There is real concern about the risk of side-effects when such drugs are used in the long-term – so it's not surprising that an increasing number of people in chronic pain are asking whether there are any nutritional interventions that may help.
This topic is one of four to be explored in the new nutritional seminar programme that kicks off in January. The seminars are open to all healthcare practitioners and are held at the Royal Society of Medicine, in Central London.
Whether you work in primary healthcare, or are a complementary health practitioner, you are sure to find these seminars highly topical and informative, as well as being a great networking opportunity. Of, if you are a patient who is suffering chronic pain, for example, you may find it helpful to alert your nutritionist, osteopath or physiotherapist to this seminar series.
Ten events will be running, between January and March. As well as the issue of chronic pain, we'll be covering respiritory health; the use of amino acids and proteins in optimizing health; and the Functional Model of nutrition.
