Fibromyalgia is a debilitating myofascial disorder that severely limits a person’s function. Some of the symptoms of those who struggle with fibromyalgia are a lack of sleep, excessive fatigue and tiredness, and long periods of depression. The good news is that chiropractic care can help reduce these symptoms and increase the quality of life for people who live with fibromyalgia.
Fibromyalgia causes the muscles to tighten and cramp up, and this results in the spine losing its ability to move around and function properly. Because of this tightening, the muscles restrict even more due to a triggered neurological reflex. This leads to even more pain, and symptoms that get worse over time. As the new trigger points emerge, symptoms worsen and flare up more frequently.
Chiropractic care helps to alleviate, and sometimes even eliminate, the chronic pain experienced with the constant adjustments of the spine caused by fibromyalgia. Spinal adjustments have been shown time and again to create relief for those suffering from fibromyalgia pain.
