Coping with Fibromyalgia: A Chiropractic Approach

bigstock-medically-accurate-illustratio

More than 3 million women each year in the United States suffer from the chronic pain and discomfort of Fibromyalgia. Widespread muscle pain and sensitivity often leave many women feeling exhausted, defeated, and depressed, further disturbing their quality of life and making it hard to live in a meaningful way. For many, it’s truly debilitating.

Fibromyalgia sufferers seeking answers or treatments for their condition aren’t left with much to work with, as currently, there is no cure for the condition. The best course of action for many women when it comes to recouping their quality of life is a comprehensive approach to palliative care.

Studies have found many different lifestyle changes to have a positive impact in alleviating some of the pain and discomfort that comes with Fibromyalgia, including seeking routine chiropractic adjustments.

How can a chiropractor help?

Your spinal column is the epicenter of your nervous system: all of your body’s major nerves run through it and are supported by it, which means your entire body is affected by the health of your spine.

For sufferers of Fibromyalgia, pain may be localized to certain areas of the body, but you can be certain those areas are supported by your central nervous system. In short, facilitating better spinal health means improving nerve function, which means helping to alleviate the localized pain of the condition from a central standpoint. Good spinal health is key in managing the nerve pain attributed to Fibromyalgia.

A chiropractor will be able to help address any misalignments that exist within your spinal column and pinpoint any areas where nerve restriction may correspond with Fibromyalgia-induced pain. After these areas are identified, proper adjustments can be made to induce alignment and re-open nerve channels, leading to diminished pain in sensitive areas!

Ongoing adjustments and CBP

For Fibromyalgia sufferers who respond to basic chiropractic adjustments, the prospect of Chiropractic BioPhysics® (CBP) is another step in the direction of wellness. This refined and specialized form of chiropractic care looks at the spinal alignment of each individual patient and what specifically can be done to restore the perfect posture.

CBP is more than just a tailored approach to chiropractic care: it’s also a sustainable one! Fibromyalgia is a lifelong condition with no known cure, which means it requires ongoing treatment and continued assessment to manage. CBP fulfills these needs and serves as an evolving answer to the otherwise unpredictable nature of Fibromyalgia.
