If you have a chronic pain disorder known as fibromyalgia (FM), you will, unfortunately, likely know it. Widespread joint and muscle pain and sensitivity throughout the musculoskeletal system, general long-term fatigue, tender pressure points and trouble sleeping are some of the most main symptoms of this disorder. It is also the most common musculoskeletal condition that can affect you while also being one of the most misdiagnosed disorders!
This condition is tricky to diagnose because it’s difficult to test for symptoms due in large part to their subjectiveness, so you can’t easily measure the symptoms via testing. There is no known cause for fibromyalgia, though there are theories. Additional symptoms that afflict FM sufferers include headaches, depression, anxiety, pain in the lower abdomen, and having trouble focusing and paying attention. The good news is, there is relief for your pain and swelling symptoms which doesn’t necessitate taking either prescription medications or over-the-counter medications with their potential side effects.
Based on the principle that the body has the ability to heal itself and recover from disease, people who treat their fibromyalgia with routine chiropractic therapy find themselves both feeling better and also better able to function throughout their day-to-day activities. Since the nervous system travels between the spine and brain to all the cells in the body, treating fibromyalgia with chiropractic care can go a long way to manage pain, provide relief from swelling and help better the range of motion in the joints.
Chiropractic therapy when combined with a balanced diet and regular exercise compliment one another in your efforts to manage fibromyalgia pain and stress. Our adjustments help lessen misalignments in the spine and other body joints to relieve inflammation and assist the nervous system and joints to improve their function and health.
Our doctor’s goal is to:
-Increase your range of motion
-Better your flexibility
-Lower the inflammation in your body
-Lessen the pain and discomfort in your body
-Improve the tone and strength of your muscles
