Fibromyalgia happens to be one of the most common chronic pain conditions in the United States. The American College of Rheumatology asserts that about 1 out of 50 Americans live with fibromyalgia on a daily basis. Fibromyalgia is characterized by pain felt in the body (throughout the body) that ends up creating areas that are incredibly tender -- even to the slightest amount of pressure.
Fibromyalgia is difficult to diagnose. Pains can last for weeks, months, years -- Fibromyalgia is chronic in nature. Chiropractic Care is an alternative treatment that can help your fibromyalgia. Read on for a few ways we help our patients living with this chronic condition.
Chiropractic Care Helps with Pain Management
Those who live with fibromyalgia live with constant pain, and chiropractic care is one way to treat such pain. Chiropractic care can help with pain and also helps restore the body to better overall health. The body self-heals as a result.
Particularly, improving alignment and doing some soft tissue work, chiropractors help treat fibromyalgia patients in lowering the pain levels of their pressure points, creating a decrease in tenderness.
Chiropractic Care Boosts Range of Motion
By loosening the body's joints, chiropractors can make adjustments and leave the body more flexible in the process.
Chiropractic Care is Good for Your Quality of Sleep
Patients find that one of the many byproducts of chiropractic care can help you enjoy a more fulfilling, deeper sleep. You'll also stay asleep longer, experiencing less pain.
