When I first started practicing Physical Therapy In 1997, I never heard about the importance of your diet regarding pain from arthritis, tendonitis, bursitis, fibromyalgia, polymyalgia, etc.  Over the last 6-7 years, I have been hearing more about the importance of “eating right” whenever I attend a continuing ed. course.  Furthermore, I have had the fortunate opportunity of hiring a Physical Therapist who is also a Nutrition Educator.  At the time Eileen was hired, I had no idea of the added value she could bring to my clinic.  Since I have changed my diet, many good things have happened to me personally.  For many years I have had significant elbow pain due to severe arthritis.  With Eileen’s help, I was able to avoid elbow surgery by just changing my diet.  Also, I am no longer taking high blood pressure meds and I have  lost over 15 pounds.  Eileen has also helped countless other patients with pain reduction, diabetes, cancer, heart disease, arthritis, and weight loss.  At Brunswick Physical Therapy we provide information that allows patients who are interested in learning how to address chronic pain through nutrition
