Fibromyalgia Pain Relief
Fibromyalgia Chiropractic Treatment
Fibromyalgia is a condition that we still do not know much about. There is no specific known cause, and it could be brought on by many different factors. The main symptom of fibromyalgia is chronic pain throughout the body, mainly located in joints. The pain may be achy, sharp, radiating, burning, or shooting and it may be mild or severe. Fibromyalgia has also been known to bring on other conditions like trouble sleeping, headaches, depression, and anxiety.
While there is no known cure for fibromyalgia, chiropractic treatment can help to uncover what may be causing the pain and also provide relief for the pain. The cause of fibromyalgia could be physical, mental, or emotional, so a full examination will be performed. Adjustments and chiropractic massage can be used to relieve pain from the affected areas. The added effects of chiropractic treatment such as increased energy levels, better circulation, and a stronger immune system can also help to fight the effects of fibromyalgia. If you are experiencing symptoms of fibromyalgia give us a call to schedule a consultation so we can establish a plan to start you on your road to recovery.
Causes of Fibromyalgia
While research continues to expand on fibromyalgia, the latest research indicates that fibromyalgia is a stress-related condition that is a cousin to several systemic conditions such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. In these conditions, there is the same predominantly female distribution, chronic fatigue, sleep disturbances, irritable bowel, and many other similarities. These conditions are caused by an abnormal stress response in the body.
How does chiropractic care help fibromyalgia?
Chiropractic care is critical for those who suffer from fibromyalgia in order to keep the spine and muscles from losing too much movement. Because fibromyalgia causes the muscles to tighten up and lose some of their natural pliability, it results in a global loss of movement in the spine.
Dr. Blakely will adjust the spine and keep it moving. It is not uncommon for some San Diego fibromyalgia patients to be adjusted a few times a month to keep everything relaxed.
