One small RCT (Allison et al. 2016) found randomized participants to either a control group or to an anti-inflammatory diet group for 12 weeks. They found that significant reductions occurred for the anti-inflammatory group in pain sensory scores and in pro-inflammatory composite scores, though the differences were not significant between groups on change scores of pain sensitivity or in the affective component of reported neuropathic pain levels.


There is level 1b evidence that inflammatory diet results in significant reduction in neuropathic pain post SCI.
