If you are afflicted by fibromyalgia, you are not alone, as Dr. Palmer sees many people with this particular problem in our Depew chiropractic office. Actually, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that roughly 2% of all adults in the US have fibromyalgia pain. Luckily, chiropractic care is one treatment option that can provide positive results.
In a medical study released in mid-2015, 215 women and men with fibromyalgia were assessed based on factors ranging from pain to quality of sleep to the levels of depression symptoms and anxiety they felt. Then they were divided into two groups with one group receiving a multi-modal treatment program for three months and the second group receiving the same approach plus chiropractic adjustments (specifically, to the upper neck tissues) for the same length of time.
The subjects who received chiropractic therapy in conjunction with the multi-disciplinary treatment approach reported greater benefits in all areas (pain, sleep, depression, and anxiety) at 12 weeks post-treatment when compared to the study people who received multi-modal therapy without chiropractic therapy. Additionally, those positive benefits were lasting as the people reported continued improvement one full year later.
Fibromyalgia pain can substantially reduce your quality of life, both mentally and physically. If you're dealing with fibromyalgia, we might be able to help.
