Treating Fibromyalgia with Chiropractic Care

Written By Northgate Chiropractic Clinic on February 25, 2019

Dealing with daily fibromyalgia pain, exhaustion, and sleep deprivation symptoms can seem like a never-ending cycle. Fortunately, many patients have turned to chiropractors to alleviate their fibromyalgia neck, back, and leg pain with just a few adjustment appointments.

Affecting 3-5% of the population, fibromyalgia causes widespread musculoskeletal pain throughout the joints, muscles, tendons, and other soft tissues.

While there is currently no cure for treating fibromyalgia, chiropractic care has become increasingly popular among patients due to their ability to restore skeletal balance and inflammation.  

Fibromyalgia Symptoms

Commonly misunderstood and misdiagnosed, medical professionals have a difficult time identifying the causes of this syndrome. Currently, a diagnosis can be made if you have the following symptoms for more than three months without any additional medical condition:

  • Joint, muscle, or tendon pain
  • Sleep problems and fatigue
  • Memory issues
  • Anxiety or depression
  • Morning stiffness
  • Numbness or tingling in the hands, arms, feet, and legs
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Painful menstrual cramps

Chiropractic Fibromyalgia Pain Treatment

Chiropractic care is a growing trend for fibromyalgia treatment to alleviate chronic pain and improve the patient's quality of life. While there are several misconceptions about chiropractic care, it is a holistic approach to treat fibromyalgia and relieve the relentless pain in the neck, back, and legs.

Misalignment of the vertebrae, or subluxations, often deteriorates the nervous system functions in the brain, spinal cord, sensory organs, and various other nerve cells and fibers throughout the body. When these subluxations interfere with the communication between the body and the brain, painful health issues occur.

Chiropractors use gentle alignments and manipulations to remove the subluxations and release the painful inflammation. By restoring the balance between the skeletal structure and the nervous system, chiropractors eliminate or significantly reduce fibromyalgia pain and can make your day-to-day much more manageable.
