Fibromyalgia is a chronic pain condition that affects 1 in 50 people in the U.S. The exact cause of Fibromyalgia is unknown, but researchers believe that the way the brain processes pain is altered. This will cause the pain to intensify and spread throughout the body. Each sufferer experiences a variety of symptoms including extreme fatigue, muscle aches, depression, thyroid imbalances, gastrointestinal disorders, food allergies, and sleep disturbances. It is very important for those with fibromyalgia to know their triggers and avoid them.
Specific chiropractic adjustments help to realign the body and restore nervous system function. Because those with fibromyalgia have a faulty central nervous system, keeping the spine aligned is key.
Chiropractic care has been proven to relieve symptoms after just one visit in fibromyalgia patients. Chiropractic adjustments treat pain and mobility issues without any medication or surgery.
