What can a chiropractor do to help with fibromyalgia pain?

Your chiropractor will develop a customized treatment plan based on your unique situation. Treatment will typically consist of one or more of the following treatments:

  • Adjustments – Adjustments will help alleviate central nervous system pressure to allow it to more accurately send pain signals throughout the body.
  • Physical Therapy – Even though fibromyalgia makes it difficult to move, it’s important to keep moving in order to retain muscle mass. The reduction of muscle mass can make fibromyalgia pain worse.
  • Lifestyle Adjustments – Changes in lifestyle can help find ways to control pain without medication. Lifestyle changes are different for everyone.
  • Diet recommendations – Nutrition is extremely important to maintain whole body wellness. Your chiropractor will make suggestions for diet and supplements to help improve the severity of your symptoms.
