If you suffer with fibromyalgia, you are not alone, as Dr. Palmer sees many people with this particular syndrome in our Depew chiropractic office. Actually, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that roughly two percent of all adults in the US have fibromyalgia. Fortunately, chiropractic is one treatment option that can provide positive results.
In a paper published in mid-2015, 215 adults with fibromyalgia were assessed based on factors ranging from pain to quality of sleep to the levels of depression or anxiety they felt. Then they were divided into two groups with one group receiving a multi-modal therapy program for three months and the second group receiving the same program plus chiropractic adjustments (specifically, to the upper neck tissues) for the same length of time.
The individuals who received chiropractic care in conjunction with the multi-modal therapy approach reported greater benefits in all areas (pain, sleep, depression, and anxiety) at three months post-treatment when compared to the study patients who received multi-modal therapy without chiropractic care. In addition, those positive benefits were lasting as the subjects reported continued improvement one full year later.
Fibromyalgia can significantly reduce your quality of life, both psychologically and physically. If you're struggling with fibromyalgia, we might be able to help.
