What are the symptoms of fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia is a syndrome that involves widespread musculoskeletal pain. This pain is typically defined by a persistent, dull ache that lasts for at least three months. To meet the criteria for diagnosis, pain must be experienced on both sides of the body, above and below the waist.

Another symptom of fibromyalgia is chronic fatigue in which you may wake up feeling tired even after long periods of rest. Individuals may have difficulty getting good quality sleep due to pain.

People with fibromyalgia may also experience cognitive difficulties in which they have trouble focusing, paying attention, and concentrating at work or school. Other symptoms of fibromyalgia include headaches, depression, and lower abdominal pain or cramping.

What causes fibromyalgia, and who is at risk?

Researchers believe a family history of fibromyalgia can make people more susceptible to developing the disease themselves. Medical studies also believe painful symptoms occur because the nervous system has become overly sensitive, which means even mild stimulation can trigger pain sensations. Fibromyalgia is more common in women than men. The spine innervates the whole body. When fibromyalgia is present, the patient can have an accumulation of pain leading to sensitivity and a loss of or trouble maintaining flexibility. Chiropractic adjustments to the spine can reduce pressure on the nerve roots leading to a decrease in pain and sensitivity.

What chiropractic treatments help with fibromyalgia?

Although there is no cure for fibromyalgia, the symptoms can be managed with chiropractic techniques and adjustments to increase the range of motion, therapeutic massage to promote circulation and relieve muscle tension, and electrical stimulation with moist heat to address pain. Because fibromyalgia is a chronic condition, patients will need to commit to ongoing treatment to keep their symptoms under control. If you are suffering from fibromyalgia and you are interested in a natural, drug-free method for pain relief, call Dr. Go today for an appointment.
