Do you suffer from the chronic pain, fatigue, insomnia, trigger points, mental fog or stress that comes with fibromyalgia? Do you wish you could live a fuller life but aren’t sure how? If that describes you, it’s time to come see a chiropractor today.
Fibromyalgia is a confusing and devastating disease. Researchers aren’t entirely sure what causes it, though theories include genetics, emotional trauma, PTSD, too little exercise and poor diet. Whatever the case, nerve signals do not accurately reflect what is happening in the body, telling the brain that you are in pain even when nothing is really causing that pain.
A chiropractor can help you address these issues through calm, relaxing and realigning techniques that reduce emotional stress and put your body back where it’s supposed to be.
Chiropractic Treatments for Fibromyalgia
There exist a wide array of treatments that can help with fibromyalgia. Physical therapy, for instance, can help painful muscles stretch and relax, relieving some of the pain associated with the disease. Massage therapy also provides relief, relaxing trigger points and making flare-ups less likely.
Many patients report that realigning the neck and spine can reduce pain and discomfort considerably. Moreover, most chiropractic adjustments enhance your ability to sleep. Sleep, in turn, makes sensations of painless acute and gives you more energy to fight fibromyalgia. Your chiropractor will tailor a plan that meets your exact needs.
