Abstract Chronic pain and depression are conditions that are highly comorbid and present with overlapping clinical presentations and common pathological biological pathways in neuroinflammation, both of which can be reversed by the use of electroacupuncture (EA) and omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs).
