Chiropractic for Fibromyalgia

Published July 18th, 2017 by Dr. Markson

Fibromyalgia is a very complex chronic disease. The symptoms take a mental and physical toll on patients, but chiropractic can help to decrease some of the painful symptoms.

Fibromyalgia is a disease of the central nervous system that causes debilitating pain throughout the body. You may experience symptoms such as headaches, painful cramps, restless leg syndrome, cognitive and memory problems, and trouble sleeping. The most common symptom is chronic body pain. This is because fibromyalgia causes the central nervous system to be over sensitive to pain impulses from the sensory organs in the body. Because this disease affects the central nervous system, tingling and numbness are very common. The constant pain causes the muscles to become very tight. 

Fibromyalgia symptoms usually begin in early adulthood, and while there are plenty lifestyle changes you can make in order to eliminate unwanted or unwarranted stress, chiropractic care is a proven and effective method to treat the chronic pain cause by Fibromyalgia. Your chiropractor will evaluate your spine in order to determine the best treatment options for you. The main goal of chiropractic is to help eliminate pain and prevent it from recurring.
