Fibromyalgia is a strange condition that is still being tested. As spinal pain specialists, we are treating more and more patients who are suffering from it. More women than men suffer from the condition and it tends to impact adults most frequently. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, CDC, around 4 million people in the United States suffer from fibromyalgia. It is clear to see why so many patients are in desperate need of relief.
We still have much to learn about fibromyalgia and with research ongoing, many doctors are unclear of how to best treat the problem. While most patients take regular medication and even injections to treat the pain and symptoms, these tend to only provide minimal relief. In fact, regular medications do not actually solve the problem or address the underlying issue. As a result, it is common for patients to suffer from the condition for the rest of their life, after a diagnosis.
Taking constant medications only to still feel tired and in pain is no way to live. We recommend that patients take proactive steps to improve their health rather than settling for the reality that there is no specific treatment for fibromyalgia. However, there is a treatment that can work when professionals customize the treatment to each patient’s individual needs through chiropractic care.
How spinal pain specialists can help
We help patients by aligning the spine and ensuring that the nerves can flow through the body unencumbered. This is why visiting our clinic is wise for anyone suffering from something like a pinched nerve. It is also necessary for the patient to understand how important spinal alignment is to overall health.
The nerves flowing freely make it possible to live a healthy life but when obstructed or encumbered, all kinds of problems can develop, ranging from severe headaches to intestinal issues. We can even estimate that fibromyalgia may be in part caused by poor spinal health. Since research is still ongoing, time will tell, but in the meantime, having a spine in alignment is going to be best for health in general and very often provides relief for fibromyalgia sufferers.
