Natural Fibromyalgia Treatment
Fibromyalgia is the medically recognized word for the more universal phrase “I have no idea what’s wrong with you, but take this medication and (fingers crossed) let me know how you respond”. While women are most often diagnosed with this condition, men can also suffer from it. It’s a sad reality, but those that have it are often lumped into the “crazy” category because frankly, nobody can figure out what’s wrong with them. At this point, technically, there is no cure to speak of either. However, as is the case with all posts, there is a silver lining. Recent studies have shown that approximately 80 percent of people receiving Chiropractic care for the treatment of Fibromyalgia are finding pain relief, better body function and an overall feeling of wellness.
So how can chiropractic help Fibromyalgia anyways?
Chiropractors strive to relieve pain by promoting balance to the skeletal structure of the body. This means they often use adjustments or spinal corrections to relieve pain. The basis of Chiropractic care revolves around the nervous system and that when there is dysfunction in the nervous system pain is often manifest. By locating and correcting the insult to the nervous system, unexplained pain and discomfort is often relieved and eliminated.
People who suffer from Fibromyalgia typically have an increased sensitivity to pain. The most common symptoms associated with this condition are fatigue, joint tenderness, joint pain, morning stiffness, dizziness and nausea. However, many people also report widespread symptoms such as depression, anxiety, memory loss, sleep disorders, weight gain and muscle weakness. Chiropractic care can help relieve these symptoms by placing the body back into the proper alignment and reducing pressure on the nervous system, which helps reduce widespread pain. Additionally, chiropractic also promotes an increase in joint range of motion and better circulation in those suffering from Fibromyalgia.
If you’ve been living with this life-altering, chronic condition, you owe it to yourself to try chiropractic. Like all things, there are no guarantees, but rest assured, the only possible side-effect is relief.
