Current Chiropractic Research On Fibromyalgia
Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition that affects millions of people. If you have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, you may have asked: Will the pain, tingling, and exhaustion ever cease? The answer: relief may be available to you in the form of specialized chiropractic care.
At Current Chiropractic, we focus on finding and addressing the root of your pain or discomfort. Dr. Apatiga, one of our doctors, is a peer-reviewed, public researcher on fibromyalgia. She has spent much of her career learning about this disorder.
Why Chiropractic Is An Effective Alternative For Fibromyalgia
Unfortunately, there is no test to diagnose fibromyalgia or a cure; currently, traditional medical treatment is focused on pain management. Our patients report less pain and greater relief when they receive chiropractic care.
Traditional forms of pain management focus primarily on the use of prescription medication. This is a difficult solution long-term as the body naturally becomes more tolerant to analgesic medication. It can also be a financial burden.
With chiropractic care, a patient is offered relief from the pain and discomfort they face in a more sustainable way.
Better Sleep With Upper Cervical Care
Ask one of our fibromyalgia patients and they will tell you that one of the primary benefits they get from upper cervical chiropractic care is significantly improved sleep. If you have been struggling with sleep or insomnia due to your fibromyalgia symptoms, you could benefit from our chiropractic care.
Working With Your Medullary Lock
The medullary lock is a complex network of soft and hard tissue that helps stabilize the medulla and upper spinal cord. Your medullary lock is responsible for keeping them secured in the center of the spinal canal when your body is faced with severe trauma. When it is out of alignment, even minor trauma (like a slip or fall) can be debilitating for the body.
For people living with fibromyalgia, we have found that even minor misalignments can put significant pressure on the veins and arteries. These arteries pump blood to specific parts of the brain that are responsible for interpreting pain. When excess pressure is applied, it can be especially problematic and exacerbate fibromyalgia symptoms.
With our chiropractic care plan, we will address issues with your medullary lock to improve vital blood flow and your brain’s ability to interpret pain.
