What Is Fibromyalgia And Can Chiropractic Care Help?

Chiropractic Care To Ease Your Pain

You may have heard the term Fibromyalgia, whether it be that a friend, a family member or perhaps yourself have this chronic disorder. A lot of patients have been diagnosed with this condition, but many people fail to understand what Fibromyalgia is all about. Furthermore, patients often wonder if chiropractic care can help. Today, Our Edmond Chiropractor is going to discuss this subject here.

Fibromyalgia is an ongoing battle of pain and sensitivity that impacts the entire musculoskeletal system. In addition to pain, patients have reported serious fatigue and/or trouble sleeping. To be more precise, in order to be diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, one must have 11 out of 18 specific tender points on their body.

Other symptoms of Fibromyalgia include:

  • Weight gain
  • Cold Symptoms
  • Chronic Headaches
  • Muscular Pain
  • Sleep disorders
  • Dizziness
  • Twitches
  • Anxiety
  • Skin Irritations
  • Depression
  • Stiffness
  • Nausea
  • Urinary Problems
  • Extremely painful menstrual cycles (Dysmenorrhea)

The fact is that many patients are unable to find relief from their pain associated with Fibromyalgia. While there is not a “one size fits all” solution to every case, chiropractic care can help in a lot of instances. Since it is speculated that Fibromyalgia can be caused by an immune system disorder, it is possible for chiropractic care to aid in restoring balance to the body.

Studies done by Mayo Clinic research and other publications listed on their site indicate that chiropractic care along with other forms of alternative therapies such as acupuncture, massage and gentle yoga are all helpful ways to control Fibromyalgia symptoms. This is in no way to say that you should ever abandon all other methods if you are under the care of a licensed doctor, but our Edmond chiropractor team does take pride in being able to help with adjustments that may bring you relief.
