Corrective Care Chiropractic and How it Helps with Fibromyalgia and Fatigue
Fibromyalgia is a musculoskeletal condition that is commonly misunderstood and misdiagnosed. The wide variety of symptoms that may appear, including pain and tiredness, might make the distinction challenging. Without a clear understanding of what’s wrong, treatment can be just as difficult. The search for an effective fibromyalgia treatment is often a frustrating experience for both patients and doctors.
Through Functional Wellness Centers expert-backed, results-oriented Chiropractic BioPhysics (CBP) approach, our chiropractors may be able to provide their patients with pain and inflammation relief in order to improve their overall quality of life. CBP chiropractors can provide patients with the answers they are looking for by evaluating what treatment choices might give them the best relief.
What is Fibromyalgia?
The following symptoms and signs are typical of fibromyalgia. It is the most common cause of chronic widespread body pain, muscular tenderness, and general tiredness. Symptoms such as headaches, anxiety, and depression can often be accompanied by trouble sleeping, poor concentration, and unrestful sleep.
The hypothesis for the origin of fibromyalgia is that the brain and spinal cord have a malfunction. When we talk about chronic pain, this occurs when the brain begins to associate a normal feeling with an unpleasant one. This ultimately leads to overactivation of the spinal and peripheral nerves that generate pain.
Because no diagnostic equipment is available for analyzing symptoms or the underlying cause, both diagnosis and therapy may be quite uncertain. Several factors increase an individual’s chance of developing fibromyalgia, including smoking, genetics, past infections, autoimmune disorders, trauma, and being female. They are also commonly associated with patients with a history of mental disorders, and a sedentary lifestyle.
When it comes to treating fibromyalgia, changing lifestyle habits appears to be the most beneficial. Gentle workouts, nutrition, stress management, and cognitive therapy are just a few of the treatment options. The use of any official therapy that addresses chronic pain, edema, and fatigue can provide significant advantages. Massage therapy, physical therapy, medication, acupuncture and chiropractic are all methods that may help. CBP chiropractors are at a great advantage for addressing these symptoms. They are specially trained at finding the root of the problem so it can be addressed the correct way.
The Benefits of Corrective Chiropractic Care for Fibromyalgia Sufferers
Chiropractic care is a safe, non-invasive technique that might help relieve fibromyalgia symptoms. We offer options like restoring spinal alignment and nerve flow to help with body pain and swelling. This is achieved through manipulation, soft tissue treatment, and lifestyle counseling. When the body is in better balance, it should be capable of more effectively controlling fibromyalgia symptoms through good nerve conduction.
In addition to chiropractic adjustments, a chiropractor may also tell you exercises or stretches to do at home. They might also suggest using heat therapy or ice packs. A full medical team may work together with fibromyalgia patients (doctors, physical therapists, massage therapist etc.) to enhance results and create the best quality of life possible. Fibromyalgia is a difficult condition to treat. However, treatment does not need to be complicated. CBP chiropractors employ a holistic approach that maximizes outcomes.
CBP chiropractic care is a comprehensive, whole-body approach.
The CBP approach is unique because it not only assesses and treats the spine but also takes into account how other regions of the body may be impacting the spine. This could include the hips, knees, ankles, and feet. For example, if someone has an ankle injury, it could be affecting the way they walk and placing additional stress on the spine. The CBP approach looks at the body as a whole unit and develops a personalized treatment plan to address each patient’s specific needs. The CBP approach has been shown to be an effective treatment for fibromyalgia. A study published in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics found that CBP was more effective than other forms of chiropractic care in treating fibromyalgia. The study involved 97 women with fibromyalgia who were randomly assigned to receive either CBP or another form of chiropractic care. After 12 weeks, the women receiving CBP had significantly greater improvements in pain, tender point count, and quality of life than the women receiving the other form of chiropractic care.
