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:
Since fibromyalgia is difficult to diagnose, a physical assessment, X-rays, and blood work are often required.
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.
Widespread pain and tenderness Trouble sleeping Lack of energy Increased fatigue Anxiety Depression
Chiropractic treatment can significantly improve symptoms associated with fibromyalgia, including a reduction in leg, back, shoulder, and neck pain.
Low impact, regular exercise is considered one of the most effective ways to manage fibromyalgia flare-ups, when combined with chiropractic treatment.
Often, the first noticeable signs of a fibromyalgia flare-up include tenderness and widespread muscle pain. Additionally, patients report pain and stiffness first thing in the morning, accompanied by brain fog and trouble concentrating.

I've had back pain for nearly three years and after many failed attempts with other therapies and chiropractic care, I decided to go see Dr. Kronaizl. After only a few weeks of treatment, I feel like I have my life back again! I highly recommend Dr. Kronaizl! Schedule that appointment, the only thing you'll regret is not scheduling it sooner.
I’ve been struggling with shoulder pain for quite some time and it had been gradually getting worse. The pain made it difficult for me to sleep at night and it got to the point where it was difficult to lift my grandson. After seeing Dr. Kronaizl I have no issues lifting my grandson and I’m no longer waking up in the middle of the night due to the pain, which is huge! I highly recommend Dr. Kronaizl. He’s performed wonders on my shoulder!

Dr Kronaizl is very knowledgeable and kind. He states exactly what he is doing and why. His concern is me and my pain and improving my problems. I I highly recommend him to everyone
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.
