Can a Chiropractor Help With Fibromyalgia?

By April 5, 2022July 14th, 2023No Comments

If you suffer from fibromyalgia, you already know how hard it is to get this condition diagnosed, much less treated. While traditional medicine doesn’t understand the causes of the muscle pain this condition is known for, their solution is usually to provide pain killers. Fortunately, chiropractic care can provide natural relief for people with this condition. We at Discover Chiropractic and Rehabilitation in Kennesaw, GA, and Marietta, GA, know a lot about fibromyalgia and how to help those who have it.

Fibromyalgia

People with fibromyalgia can experience pain in the muscles throughout their body. When pain is concentrated in a particular area, it is likely the fault of nerves in that area being compressed or inflamed. Even pain in the extremities can be attributed to nerves that connect these muscle groups to the spine.

Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care works by moving muscles so that these nerves are no longer compressed, allowing them to become less inflamed. For sufferers of fibromyalgia, this leads to a reduction in the pain signal that is being sent to the brain through these nerves.

During a flare-up of this condition, a chiropractic appointment can be made that will help to relieve some or all the pain. It is recommended, however, that patients enter a treatment program. During this program the muscles will be moved so that pain relief lasts for longer periods of time. The goal is to achieve a lifestyle that will employ infrequent, minor adjustments on the body that will keep nerves from experiencing inflammation.

Chiropractic care can also include counseling on nutrition and lifestyle changes that can also work to keep your fibromyalgia in check.
