Fibromyalgia Chiropractic Treatment at Natural Wellness LLC
When you struggle with the chronic pain syndrome known as fibromyalgia, you may feel as if you have a multitude of illnesses all at the same time. This mysterious imbalance in the body produces a variety of uncomfortable symptoms, from muscle pain and headaches to digestive troubles. To make matters worse, doctors can force you to wait for treatment until they can deliver a formal diagnosis -- at which point they still may trouble controlling your symptoms. The good news is that conservative care can often succeed where other medical approaches fall short. Here at Natural Wellness LLC, our fibromyalgia chiropractic treatment can help you feel and function better through safe, effective, all-natural measures.
Fibromyalgia: A Challenging Chronic Problem
No one really knows for sure why some people come down with fibromyalgia. We do know that more women than men develop the disorder; injuries or intense emotional stress can also set it off. Researchers believe that sufferers may have abnormally high levels of substance P, a chemical that regulates pain sensation, as well as low levels of serotonin, a chemical that regulates feelings of well-being. This unfortunate combination can make you hypersensitive to even the slightest aches, pains or other physical issues. It also encourages the formation of tight muscle knots called tender points in various parts of the body. Discomforts associated with fibromyalgia include:
• Poor sleep quality
• Chronic musculoskeletal pain
• Chronic fatigue
• Irritable bowel syndrome
How Our Highland Chiropractor Can Help
The traditional medical protocol for diagnosing fibromyalgia requires that patients display tender points in all four quadrants of the body, in 11 out of 18 recognized areas, for at least 3 months before offering treatment for that specific disorder. to make matters worse, tender points may come and go in fibromyalgia patients, extended the wait for a formal diagnosis and much-needed treatment. But our chiropractor, Dr. Ternoir, is free to address your issues without that stricture by simply focusing on normalizing your physical function. Any care that improves how well how musculoskeletal and nervous systems operate will naturally help to ease and control any symptoms caused by an imbalance, allowing your body to respond to pain triggers in a less exaggerated manner.
Chiropractic adjustments to the cervical spine can prove especially helpful for fibromyalgia sufferers. That's because many people who have fibromyalgia also have spinal stenosis, a condition in which a narrowed spinal canal puts pressure on nerve tissue. By correcting any alignment errors in this part of the spinal column, we can reduce the effects of spinal stenosis, potentially reducing a major cause of your discomfort in the process.
