Fibromyalgia is a painful condition that is characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain and joint pain. The most common treatment for fibromyalgia includes lifestyle changes, pain medication, and stress management. Unfortunately, many of these conventional treatments only provide temporary relief.
Chiropractic care works on the principle that the body is capable of healing itself and it’s rapidly becoming the treatment of choice for people who are suffering from fibromyalgia that are searching for a natural approach to pain management.
At Cornerstone Chiropractic Health Center, our chiropractors provide empathic, caring, and effective treatment to fibromyalgia sufferers. Regular visits can help patients manage their chronic pain, to alleviate their symptoms, and improve their quality of life.
With no known cure or cause, fibromyalgia is difficult to diagnose. Researchers believe that this complicated disorder develops when the spinal cord and brain fail to process non-pain signals accurately. This results in the nerves sending pain signals to the brain, despite the lack of a pain-related condition.
Researchers believe that the following can increase a person’s chances of developing fibromyalgia:

Chronic pain is not the only symptom associated with this condition. In addition to debilitating pain and discomfort, people with fibromyalgia may also experience:
Fibromyalgia affects approximately four million Americans and is more commonly diagnosed in women.
At Cornerstone Chiropractic Health Center, we know how debilitating fibromyalgia pain can be. Not only do patients with this condition struggle with chronic pain, but increased fatigue, headaches, tenderness, and changes in mobility can significantly impact their quality of life. Our expertise in fibromyalgia treatment allows us to create a personalized treatment plan that can help reduce fibromyalgia symptoms and improve range of motion, flexibility, and promote healing and recovery.
If you’ve never been to a chiropractor before, you might be wondering what to expect on your first visit. When you visit Cornerstone Chiropractic Health Center to seek treatment for your fibromyalgia, you will fill out paperwork that will help us learn more about your condition. Next, you will meet with the chiropractor for a detailed consultation and physical examination.
On your first visit, you will receive an initial chiropractic examination starting with a consultation and a case history, where we gather any important information that might be important for the diagnosis and treatment of your condition. We will also perform a detailed physical examination and any necessary testing to determine exactly what is causing your fibromyalgia.
Adjustments are commonly used to treat patients suffering from fibromyalgia symptoms. They may be used to align the vertebrae, relieve tension all over the body, reduce pressure and alleviate pain. Treatment can also boost the production of endorphins and improve circulation, mobility, and range of motion.
Recovery from fibromyalgia can take weeks or even months, depending on how early treatment is started. Frequent visits can help relax your muscles, increase mobility, alleviate pain, and improve your overall quality of life.

Dr. Mike is personable and listens to his patients. My primary interaction with him was with one of my wrestlers that was tryin to get back on the mat after numerous surgeries. He tried and tried and continued to have problems with his shoulder. He was sidelined for a good portion of his senior year. Dr. Mike started working with him a couples days a week. This last for for about 8 weeks. He was ultimately able to compete and placed 3rd in the state tournament. What is truly unique is that he had gone to numerous other experts and the results were always the same. It was different with Dr. mike and so were the results. This guy does it right and gets results! I strongly recommend him.

Dr. Michael was very professional and personable. I finally went in after experiencing back pain for nearly a month and felt so much better after one adjustment. Highly recommend!
Dr. Michael is a true professional who not only provided me with adjustments that worked, but did so in such a caring and polite manner with my health top of mind. I highly recommend Dr. Michael to anyone seeking chiropractic care!
