Chiropractic for Fibromyalgia
When it comes to muscoskeletal conditions, fibromyalgia is the most common and widespread condition that’s diagnosed across the worlds. In the United Sates alone, anywhere from 6 to 12 million people suffer from fibromyalgia, with 90% of those diagnosed being female.
While this chronic illness is typically identified by widespread joint and muscle pain, there are lots of other symptoms that people with fibromyalgia experience, including:
- Pain or ache in the lower abdomen
- Trouble Sleeping
- Inability to focus
The traditional methods for treating fibromyalgia include prescription medications and over-the-counter pain medications, many of which are prescribed to address a patient’s pain and swelling.
Chiropractic care offers an alternative to these traditional treatment options in the form of regular, non-invasive, and non-addictive chiropractic adjustments. These gentle adjustments correct misalignments in the body and reduce joint restrictions, which ultimately relieve inflammation and improve both the joint and nervous system.
By increasing joint mobility, improving the nervous system, and protecting spinal health, chiropractic treatments are an effective way to treat fibromyalgia and manage its symptoms.
