Fibromyalgia and Chiropractic care
Chiropractic care does not heal fibromyalgia but it can prevent the loss of movement in your spine and muscles and promoting healing by keeping your spine calm and relaxed. This condition needs to be treated to stop deterioration, increased pain, loss of movement and difficulty sleeping.
Chiropractic care can prevent this cycle by continually adjusting the spine and sustaining its movement. At Spinal Care Clinics, we incorporate electric treatment benches and digital x-ray equipment to acutely adjust your spine and facilitate a more comfortable range of movement.
What is Fibromyalgia and why should you have it treated?
Fibromyalgia syndrome is a chronic disorder, which causes pain in both the right and left side, as well as above and below the waist. It’s a disorder we at Spinal Care Clinics have helped people with regularly and we know how much of an impact it can have on your life.
Fibromyalgia often develops gradually, beginning in early adulthood and progressing with age.
It’s caused by a stress-induced change in metabolism and healing processes. These metabolic changes are the result of a stress-induced decrease in blood flow to an area of the brain called the pituitary. This causes a decrease in the production and distribution of a number of important hormones throughout your body.
We use highly technological equipment to assess your level of health at the start of the 8WW program to ensure that each of these elements will be specifically tailored to you and your goals.
This is called a Wellness Score Assessment. This acts as a very effective 'Barometer' to measure your overall health. It's a great way of gaining peace of mind by confirming all is well, or it can provide us with an early warning sign that there's a specific area that needs our attention.
Common symptoms of fibromyalgia include:
Irritable bowel syndrome
Painful menstrual periods
Numbness or tingling of the extremities
Restless legs syndrome
Cognitive and memory problems (sometimes referred to as “fibro fog”)
Abnormal muscle healing
How can we help and what would my care involve?
One of the most significant concerns with treating fibromyalgia sufferers is that their muscles cannot heal adequately.
Our team of experienced practitioners will use gentle chiropractic spinal adjustments in order to decrease the stress on all of the small supporting muscles of the spine, which can be easily injured.
We encourage all of our clients to pursue sports massage therapies during chiropractic care, which will significantly support your muscles in the healing processes.
We’ll help with day-to-day lifestyle changes as this can significantly impact the effects of fibromyalgia. These lifestyle changes can reduce your pain, enable you to remain more active and permit you to experience a better quality of life.
We’re incredibly proud of our track record in helping thousands of people enjoy what they love and live life to the fullest.
So if you’re suffering from any symptoms, which are causing you pain, or you’d just like to improve your posture, strength, flexibility and feel energized again, don’t hesitate to start your road to recovery right now.
