Fibromyalgia and Chiropractic Care

Fibromyalgia and Chiropractic CareIf you’ve been diagnosed with fibromyalgia you may feel as if there will never be an end to the tingling, pain and exhaustion that accompany this syndrome. However, help may be as close as making an appointment with your chiropractor.

If you’ve never been to a chiropractor, you may have some questions about how it works. Basically, chiropractors believe that the body is a connected system. If your bones, ligaments, muscles, joints and tendons aren’t functioning properly then they can lead to an improperly functioning system. When your skeletal structure is strong, your body is strong. Chiropractors help restore the balance in your skeletal structure through adjustments, manipulations and stretches to eliminate the pain associated with fibromyalgia.  

Patients with this syndrome have been turning to chiropractic care in increasing numbers over the years to treat the neck pain, back pain and leg cramps that often accompany fibromyalgia. Many have found that a few adjustments to the neck and spine can greatly relieve the chronic pain that they live with.

A lot of people who suffer from fibromyalgia are also afflicted with upper cervical spinal stenosis. This condition leads to the compression of meninges (the coverings of the upper spine) to become compressed. In turn, the patient is left with pain across their entire body. A chiropractor who is familiar with this syndrome can adjust the head and neck so that the spine isn’t compressed, which can help alleviate some of the chronic pain that is associated with fibromyalgia.

So, just how effective is chiropractic care at managing the pain associated with fibromyalgia? There have been several studies done to answer that question and the answer appears to be “Quite effective.” One study in particular, examined the effectiveness of the spinal manipulation done by chiropractors on relieving symptoms related to fibromyalgia. After only 15 treatments, patients reported a decrease in pain and fatigue, and an increase in the quality of their sleep.

If you suffer from fibromyalgia, talk to your primary care physician about the risks and benefits of chiropractic care. Then, take your time and search out a Doctor of Chiropractic who understands the unique symptoms that your body presents. While there is currently no cure for fibromyalgia, there is definitely treatment available that can make your life more manageable.

    ~Laura W. Douglassville, PA
  • "I have been a patient of Dr Kisla’s for 15 years. I came to her with a serious back injury. She worked with me and relieved my pain and today my back and flexibility are better than ever! I go in for a "tune up" each month and at the age of 52 I am able to work at a very physically demanding job and wouldn’t be able to do it without her care! Thank You Dr K"
