The exhaustion, the pain, the discomfort: Fibromyalgia is a condition that drastically takes away from your quality of life. Not only are you in pain often, but your mood may change, making your life unpredictable from one day to the next.
If you’ve tried other treatments but to no avail consider chiropractic care for your fibromyalgia. You may be surprised what a big difference it makes.
What Is Fibromyalgia?
Fibromyalgia is a whole-body condition that alters many areas of your life. You may experience mood changes, memory issues, sleeplessness, exhaustion, and muscle aches and pains throughout the body.
Those with depression, anxiety, irritable bowel syndrome, temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ), and tension headaches tend to have fibromyalgia. This condition is incurable.
What Causes It?
There are many causes of fibromyalgia. Gender is one of these, with men having this condition less often than women. Those who have experienced psychological stress, a serious infection, a post-surgery complication, or physical trauma may get this condition.
Sometimes though, fibromyalgia has no cause.
What Are the Symptoms?
We briefly mentioned the symptoms associated with fibromyalgia above. Now we’ll discuss them in more detail:
- The inability to concentrate and focus, also known as fibro fog
- Sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome, overnight pain, and/or any other sleep issues that cause exhaustion
- Pain throughout the body, sometimes feeling more intense than others
How Does Chiropractic Care Help with Fibromyalgia?
Chiropractic care can make a big difference in fibromyalgia pain, no matter where it emanates from. When you see a chiropractor, they will first discuss your symptoms with you and then formulate a treatment plan that’s unique to your symptoms.
By targeting the spine with chiropractic techniques like adjustments, manipulations, and spinal adjustments, there will be less pressure on the spine. With proper spinal alignment, a lot of your fibromyalgia pain may disappear.
Your chiropractor may recommend combining chiropractic care with other treatments like acupuncture and massage therapy for chronic fibromyalgia pain.
