Fibromyalgia Support

Chiropractic services have long provided substantial relief to chronic pain patients, and fibromyalgia patients are at the top of that list. The constant overwhelming feeling of intractable pain from head to toe can be diminished through the right Chiropractic care.

Fibromyalgia is long-term pain that exists for more than 12 weeks. It can bring pain that is stabbing, aching, cramping or burning (neuropathy). It can bring limitations to your mobility, headaches, and a cognitive dysfunction commonly known as fibro fog.

The medical community recommends exercise as the first treatment of Fibromyalgia. Long—term sufferers of this disorder may have come to a point where exercise is not possible as it is limited by the amount of pain that the patient is experiencing.

What Can You Expect from Fibromyalgia Support?

Chiropractic treatment for Fibromyalgia will vary from patient to patient. Although deep tissue massage has proven effective in the treatment of fibromyalgia, many patients are unable to tolerate it. The degree of treatment will vary from patient to patient.

An effective Fibromyalgia treatment regimen will include exercise, massage, chiropractic adjustments, and possibly physical therapy. Most Fibromyalgia patients will experience a decrease in their pain levels and an increase in energy and mobility. They will see a reduction in ‘fibro fog’ and insomnia.

Frequently Asked Questions

No. Fibromyalgia is an incurable disorder. Chiropractic treatment can significantly reduce the symptoms and side effects and make you feel much better.

No. You need to get your diagnosis from your primary care physician, rheumatologist, or neurologist. This disorder can mimic other conditions and it is always best to have those other conditions ruled out and have an official diagnosis from your doctor.

Fibromyalgia patients can get some degree of relief from other treatments that can be invasive or with medication. Radiofrequency ablation can be effective on knee joints, lower back, and neck symptoms. With this treatment, the doctor burns the nerve that sends pain to that area. It can last a few weeks or a few months and will need to be done every few months for that relief to continue. Other treatments are related to prescription drugs such as Lyrica, Gabapentin, anti-inflammatory drugs, steroids, or even opioid narcotics.
