Our Atlanta chiropractor can relieve aches and pains associated with fibromyalgia so you feel better every day. While there is no cure for fibromyalgia, our treatments can reduce your symptoms and improve your qualify of life.
Fibromyalgia is a type of chronic pain condition where pain, tenderness, and inflammation occur at specific points in the body. You may feel fibromyalgia pain in your neck, back, shoulder blades, buttocks, hips, and elbows. Over 3 million people in the U.S. are diagnosed with fibromyalgia. In addition to the physical symptoms of pain and soreness, many people feel tired or confused, have difficulty sleeping, or experience mood swings.
Scientists do not know what causes fibromyalgia. Conventional treatment of fibromyalgia often includes medication to mask the pain and talk therapy or stress relief programs to reduce the emotional symptoms of the disease.
Fibromyalgia patients often employ a team approach to their treatment. Many find it helpful to work with a conventional doctor and other wellness providers. Chiropractic can help alleviate the physical symptoms and reduce the intensity of neurological, mental, and emotional side effects due to the way treatments positively affect the nervous system.
Taking medication to hide your pain is not fun, especially when you think about doing this every day for the rest of your life. If you feel like conventional treatment of fibromyalgia is not controlling your pain, or want to try treating fibromyalgia without medication, chiropractic can help.
Our Atlanta chiropractor can work on your tender fibromyalgia points to reduce the pain you feel by realigning joints, muscles, and ligaments. By releasing restrictions in joint movement and subluxations of the spine, we can reduce pressure on tender points. Thus, you may feel less pain on a daily basis.
Adjustments affect the nervous system, which passes messages along the spine to different parts of your body. When your nervous system is out of whack due to spinal subluxations, you can experience a fibro flare-up. Regular adjustments help keep painful fibromyalgia symptoms at bay, while relieving stress.
All of the systems in your body depend on a properly functioning nervous system to work well. As we tune up your nervous systems, all of the other systems in your body can do their jobs more efficiently. Our patients report more energy, less stress and anxiety, less pain in the body, and an overall sense of wellbeing.
