Fibromyalgia Q & A

What Is Fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia is a chronic disorder that results in pain in many different areas of the body. Fibromyalgia sufferers have pain for three or more months consecutively; they have pain from nearly top to bottom; and the pain happens equally on both sides of the body.

What Are the Common Fibromyalgia Symptoms?

While pain is the most obvious symptom of fibromyalgia, many other symptoms may come along with it. The pain is often accompanied by anxiety, insomnia, depression, and exhaustion.

Why Does Fibromyalgia Happen?

Fibromyalgia does not have a single clear-cut cause at this time. There are a number of different medical theories regarding fibromyalgia. It may occur due to neurochemical imbalances, according to some researchers. This could make sense because fibromyalgia sufferers may have terribly acute pain from quite minor stimuli. No matter what the cause of fibromyalgia, there are currently effective treatments available. Chiropractic treatment is one of the most popular and most successful types of fibromyalgia treatment today.

What Is Involved in Chiropractic Treatment for Fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia treatment with a chiropractor involves a truly customized approach. There are many different pain points in fibromyalgia: 18 points in total, with 11 or more of them considered active pain points at a given time. The chiropractic care provider will determine pain points during a gentle hands-on examination. For most people who suffer from fibromyalgia, spinal alignment can be extremely beneficial in symptom management. Other types of therapy, such as heat and ice therapy or ultrasound therapy, may also be useful in symptom relief. All of these types of therapy can be done by a chiropractic care provider. Some fibromyalgia patients also find that lifestyle counseling from the chiropractic caregiver can be helpful. Relaxation techniques and prescribed exercises can be customized for the individual suffering from fibromyalgia.
