Dallas GA Chiropractic Office Has Options For Fibromyalgia Sufferers

By Mark Marabut

Fibromyalgia is a persistent chronic disorder known for sensitivity and widespread pain throughout the entire musculoskeletal system. As well as pain, patients also report mood and sleep disturbances, plus long-term fatigue. Fibromyalgia can be associated with TMJ dysfunction and pain, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), some autoimmune disorders, depression, and some psychological conditions. Medical science has not yet discovered a cause for this disorder.

There are chiropractic care solutions for fibromyalgia. Recent studies have indicated that chiropractic adjustments, combined with a technique called ischemic compression, can bring significant pain reduction, decreased fatigue, and improved sleep. Chiropractors are specially trained in the neuromuscular system, and can improve a patient's quality of life if they have fibromyalgia.

They understand that all systems are interconnected. If even one component - joints, tendons, muscles, bones, or ligaments - are not functioning properly, a person may experience issues. Chiropractors use manipulations, stretches, and adjustments, to restore skeletal balance and relieve a lot of the pain frequently associated with Fibromyalgia.

Many fibromyalgia patients are turning to chiropractors to help them with pain caused by upper-cervical spinal stenosis. Chiropractors can adjust the neck and head to relieve the compression of the spine, which in turn can help to alleviate fibromyalgia-related chronic pain. A Dallas GA chiropractic doctor can use a combination of trigger point therapy and chiropractic adjustments to decrease the duration and severity of fibromyalgia's physical pain.

Eighteen separate tender points of the body are connected to Fibromyalgia. They are linked to various symptoms such as IBS, temperature sensitivity, restless legs, menstrual pain, morning stiffness, tingling or numb extremities, headaches, cognitive and memory issues (or "fibro fog"), and sleep disturbances. According to research, this condition is related to stress, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and Lupus.

A Dallas chiropractor can adjust your spine and decrease stress on the spine's supporting muscles. They can use trigger point therapy, cold laser therapy, and chiropractic adjustments to make you feel better.
