What is Fibromyalgia?
Fibromyalgia is chronic pain that affects most of the body. It is a very common condition that attacks your muscles and bones.
What Causes Fibromyalgia?
There is no known cause of fibromyalgia, although some doctors believe that somehow the spinal cord and brain incorrectly process pain signals to the nerves. A person is more likely to have fibromyalgia if they are a woman if it runs in the family, you have another disease related to pain, such as an infection or arthritis, you don't exercise much, you have depression or anxiety, and if you were ever emotionally or physically abused.
What are the Symptoms of Fibromyalgia?
The main symptom of fibromyalgia is widespread pain felt throughout the entire body. Other symptoms include fatigue, muscle pain, feelings of depression, tender points on the body, not being able to sleep well, and having a hard time concentrating. There are other symptoms of fibromyalgia, such as headaches, numbness, belly pain, peeing more, being sensitive to heat, cold, sound or light, and a dry nose, mouth, or eyes.
If you have any of these symptoms that do not go away, you should call a chiropractor so that we can diagnose and treat your fibromyalgia as soon as possible.
How Can a Chiropractor Help?
A chiropractor can help in many ways if you have fibromyalgia. Make an appointment as soon as you can so that we can diagnose and treat your condition. Once a diagnosis of Fibromyalgia is made, we can discuss a treatment plan with you. We offer chiropractic adjustments, and more, all of which can help ease the pain and discomfort of fibromyalgia.
Chiropractic adjustments involve realigning the neck and spine. When the neck and spine are correctly aligned with each other, pressure is taken off of soft tissue and other body parts, bringing pain relief to these areas. In We look forward to helping you out.
