Have you ever heard of fibromyalgia? It is one of the world’s most common musculoskeletal conditions, and it is often misdiagnosed. Fibromyalgia is a chronic (long term) disease that is identified by widespread joint and muscle pain, areas of tenderness, and fatigue. There is unfortunately not a clear cause of fibromyalgia, as its symptoms vary from patient to patient and they cannot be measured through tests. This is also a large part of the reason why it is so often misdiagnosed.
Symptoms of fibromyalgia can include:
Sleeping for long periods of time but not feeling rested
Pain or dull aching in the lower abdomen
Inability to focus and difficulty paying attention
Can Chiropractic Help?
When it comes to fibromyalgia, regular chiropractic care can be an excellent tool to relieve and manage swelling and pain. Chiropractic is a natural, non-addictive, non-invasive form of therapy that can be an alternative to treatments like prescription drugs that can come with negative side effects.
As chiropractors, it is our goal to deliver effective and gentle adjustments. These adjustments reduce joint restrictions, also known as misalignments, in the spine and other joints of the body. They also reduce inflammation and improve function to the affected joints and nervous system. By increasing joint mobility and improving the overall health of the nervous system, you give your body a better opportunity to manage the symptoms caused by fibromyalgia.
Patients we have treated that suffer from fibromyalgia have reported these benefits after receiving chiropractic adjustments:
Improved range of motion
Reduced discomfort and pain
Increased muscle tone and strength
