Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia can be a very painful and debilitation condition.  We have had success with treating patients that have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, especially when fixing the misalignments in their neck. 

How does chiropractic help with fibromyalgia? 

All of the pain nerves in the body send messages up to the brain stem.  It is the brain stem’s job to suppress the signals that come from the body or not.  When a person gets just 3 millimeters of rotation in the upper cervical spine between two bones, it has been shown to cause neurologic interference.  Interference in this area of the body can cause the body to not suppress the pain nerve signals coming from the body, and this can cause someone to feel more pain than the average person.  This can cause fibromyalgia like symptoms, and it can cause an exacerbation of fibromyalgia symptoms.  So if you or somebody you know has fibromyalgia or fibromyalgia like symptoms, we recommend that they get their spine checked for misalignments.  The reduction of these misalignments might help.…without the use of drugs and surgery.
