Q & A

What are the symptoms of fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia causes pain throughout your body. It can also cause sleep problems and overwhelming fatigue.

 

People with fibromyalgia may also experience:

 

  • Burning, twitching, or tightness in the muscles
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Tender points of pain in the shoulders, back, hips, arms, legs, and neck
  • Problems with concentration and memory

Fibromyalgia doesn’t have a specific diagnostic test, so it can be difficult to determine whether you have the condition. Often, your medical provider only comes to a diagnosis of fibromyalgia after ruling out other causes of your symptoms.

Am I at risk of developing fibromyalgia?

Researchers don’t fully understand why some people develop fibromyalgia. The condition can run in families, and women who have another painful disease, such as an infection or arthritis, have a higher risk. 

 

Other factors that may increase your risk of developing fibromyalgia include a sedentary lifestyle, mood disorders, and a history of emotional or physical abuse or trauma. 

How do you treat fibromyalgia?

Chiropractic care offers an alternative to the prescription medicine treatments that conventional medical practitioners often rely on to treat fibromyalgia symptoms. 

 

The goal of the treatments provided at Spinal Correction Centers is to address the root cause of your condition so your symptoms occur less often and are far less severe.

 

Precise chiropractic adjustments can help restore the overall health of fibromyalgia patients and aid their bodies in self-healing. 

 

Chiropractic care improves your spine’s alignment. You also experience better movement in your joints, so stiffness and pain resolve. Without chiropractic care, severe stiffness and immobility can persist.

 

Chiropractic care also includes lifestyle recommendations that help patients with fibromyalgia improve the nutritional quality of their diets. This also benefits overall health. Your provider may also offer recommendations on boosting sleep quality to combat underlying fatigue. 

 

Your treatment may also include soft tissue work, like therapeutic massage, to minimize painful pressure points in your neck, shoulders, spine, back, and joints. Chiropractic care can also alleviate headaches and painful joints associated with fibromyalgia.
