Earlier research about the benefits of omega-3 fatty acids as a natural alternative for controlling pain was done by Dr. Joseph Maroon, MD, professor of neurosurgery at the University of Pittsburgh Medical School. Dr. Maroon specializes in treating chronic degenerative spine disease. He is also the team neurosurgeon for the Pittsburgh Steelers football team. Dr. Maroon has had outstanding success treating both chronic pain patients and injured football players with high doses of omega-3 fatty acids from fish oil.
Dr. Maroon reported his amazing results at the 73rd meeting of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons. He treated 253 non-surgical candidates with chronic neck or back pain with high daily doses of omega-3 fatty acids. After an average of 75 days, 59% had stopped taking their prescription pain killers, and 88% were pleased enough with their results that they continued taking the omega-3 supplements. No significant adverse effects were reported in his study. Dr. Mo
