About Palm Beach Pain Institute
Pain is an unfortunate part of life that may be caused by either an acute or chronic condition. Most types of pain are felt when nerve endings, known as nociceptors, sense something is wrong. In response, the nociceptors send messages to other nerves, which transfer the messages to the brain and spinal cord almost instantly.
Pain can result from disease, trauma, surgery, abnormalities of the nervous system, or an undiagnosed cause. When pain persists, becomes unmanageable, or leads to a chronic pain syndrome, special treatment from a pain medicine physician is recommended for the patient’s health and well-being.

Does diet play a role in getting a migraine? Are there certain triggers which bring one on? Is it the food or a chemical within the food? The relationship between nutrition and migraines is mostly anecdotal, but more clinical studies are being done right now.
We all have pain to some degree, especially as we get older. Sometimes it is worse in the morning when we wake up, sometimes it hits us mid-afternoon after standing too long, or for some, it hurts whenever we move. That might be called chronic pain.
