Program Details

Nutrition plays an important role in health, wellness, and prevention and treatment of various disorders. Numerous factors and comorbidities are apparent in patients with spinal pain disorders that may be responsive to nutritional interventions, ranging from physiological processes (e.g. inflammation) to general health (e.g. obesity). However, specific information is largely unavailable to assist spine care practitioners with clinical decision-making processes for implementation of nutritional approaches for their patients. This symposium will discuss nutritional considerations for management of spinal pain disorders.
