Fibromyalgia is a debilitating condition that affects more than 5 million Americans, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), causing widespread pain and diffuse aching that can range from mild to severe. But until recently, fibromyalgia was not recognized as a serious, chronic condition, and many healthcare providers have been slow to provide treatments aimed at meaningful, long-term relief. As a result, many patients have been left feeling frustrated that their needs are not being adequately met, and the daily pain and tenderness continues.
Fibromyalgia and Your Body
In fibromyalgia, pain signals sent by your nerve endings to your brain become disrupted or amplified, resulting in painful symptoms affecting the joints and soft tissues. While many scientists think the condition may develop following some type of physical or emotional trauma, the precise causes are unknown. Fortunately, just because the underlying causes of fibromyalgia haven’t been identified yet, that doesn’t mean there aren’t safe, effective treatments to treat the condition and provide relief.
How Chiropractic Can Help
Because fibromyalgia involves the relationship between the brain and the physical body – the joints, muscles and other soft tissues – chiropractic is uniquely positioned to provide relief. The spine is the main “highway” for nerves leaving the brain and traveling to other organs and tissues throughout the body. Sometimes, the bones in the spine move out of alignment, resulting in pressures on nerves and interfering with transmission of important nerve signals. Chiropractic adjusts the spine using direct, focused pressure and gentle, passive stretching movements to release pressure on nerves while releasing built-up toxins that can become trapped in tissues. Over time, multiple adjustments and other chiropractic treatments can provide long-term relief for painful symptoms that can occur anywhere in the body.
