Fibromyalgia

fibromyalgia

For many people, fibromyalgia is a difficult and painful disease that appears to defy treatment. However, in many ways, chiropractic care is tailored for dealing with many of the symptoms of fibromyalgia. The condition essentially manifests due to dysfunction surrounding the muscles, joints, bones, nerves and ligaments that make up your system. By using adjustments, manipulations, and pain relief techniques, the team at My Family Chiro in Saint George can help restore the natural balance of your system and help eliminate the deep pain associated with fibromyalgia.

What Is Fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia is a rheumatic diseases that impacts the musculoskeletal system, and can bring about pain, stiffness, and tenderness in specific points throughout the body. Many sufferers also report fatigue, memory problems, sleep issues, and mood swings. Others may also experience restless leg syndrome (RLS), depression, and anxiety in conjunction with fibromyalgia. In other words, it’s a condition that has a large impact on your entire system.

How Chiropractic Care Can Help

In recent years, fibromyalgia sufferers are increasingly turning to chiropractic care to manage and treat their symptoms. For many with fibromyalgia, the most straightforward way chiropractic care helps is by managing pain in the neck and back, and for common issues like leg cramps.

The most standard treatment that can help you alleviate your pain is a spinal adjustment, both along the back and the spine. In many cases, people with fibromyalgia are suffering from a condition known as upper cervical spinal stenosis. This is characterized as pressure and inflammation of the meninges, which are the coverings seen on the upper spinal area, leading the spinal cord to become compressed. This can cause pain throughout the body. A knowledgeable chiropractor like Dr. Tom Johnson can use a special spinal decompression technique to relieve pressure between the spinal columns and help adjust the spine so it’s in proper alignment, which can all provide systemic relief across the body.

When pain is reduced, blood flow returned to normal, and the spine brought back into realignment, many patients begin to experience a reduction in other symptoms as well. Often, this creates a positive feedback loop within the body. For example, when sleep improves, many also experience a severe reduction in fibromyalgia symptoms such as pain and fatigue.

A number of studies have helped confirm how effective chiropractic care can be for fibromyalgia, which is a condition many fail to find pain relief even after taking strong prescription painkillers. For example, one study found that chiropractic management help restore patients’ range of motion in the cervical and lumbar regions, and also led to reduction in pain levels.

Dr. Johnson can also create a custom dietary plan and a personalized exercise program designed to increase energy, reduce pain in key muscle groups, and help you maintain long-term health for fibromyalgia symptoms. It’s all a part of his “whole body” approach to treating pain without drugs or invasive surgeries.
