Get Relief From Fibromyalgia Pain

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.

Possible Causes of Fibromyalgia

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:

  • Obesity
  • Being a woman
  • Autoimmune disorders
  • Being middle-aged
  • Having a family history of fibromyalgia
  • Having a past medical history of repeated injuries
  • Dealing with ongoing, unmanaged stress

Since fibromyalgia is difficult to diagnose, a physical assessment, X-rays, and blood work are often required.

Symptoms of 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:

Sleep problems

  • Anxiety
  • Cognitive issues
  • Brain fog
  • Difficulty focusing
  • Fatigue
  • Depression
  • Headaches

Fibromyalgia affects approximately four million Americans and is more commonly diagnosed in women.

How Chiropractic Care Can Help With Fibromyalgia Pain

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.

What to Expect at Your Chiropractic Appointment

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.

1

Initial Evaluation

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.

2

Adjustments

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.

3

Post-Treatment Care

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.
