This review discusses chronic pain, multiple modifiable lifestyle factors, such as stress, insomnia, diet, obesity, smoking, alcohol consumption and physical activity, and the relationship between these lifestyle factors and pain after cancer. Chronic pain is known to be a common consequence of cancer treatments, which considerably impacts cancer s...
Article
Amongst adults with chronic pain, overweight and obesity are highly prevalent. The association between chronic pain and overweight is driven by several explanations, including increased biomechanical load, changes in the gut microbiome, and low-grade (neuro)inflammation. Moreover, the link between overweight, obesity and chronic pain can best be co...
Article
Background: Chronic pain is one of the most often seen, but often undertreated, sequelae in survivors of cancer. Also, this population often shows significant nutritional deficiencies, which can affect quality of life, general health status, and even risk of relapse. Given the influence of nutrition on brain plasticity and function, which in turn...
Article
Background: Although diet is an essential aspect of human health, the link between diet and pain is still not well understood. Preclinical animal research provides information to understand underlying mechanisms that allow identifying the needs for human research. Objectives: This study aims to give a systematic overview of the current evidence fro...
Article
Introduction: Few treatment programs for chronic pain nowadays take dietary pattern or adipose status into account. Areas covered: An important role of neuro-inflammation in chronic pain is now well-established, at least in part due to increased central nervous system glia activation. Based on preclinical studies, it is postulated that the interact...

It is essential to understand the role of nutritional factors such as diet and dietary patt...

Therefore, the purpose of this review was to systematically review the literature on the link between dietary patterns, the components of patients'...
Article

Additionally, poor diet is also considered a predicting, perpetuating, or underlying factor in chronic musculoskeletal pain. This narrative review provides an overview of current knowledge on the relationship b...
