We have treated many patients with fibromyalgia and other pain disorders in our Depew, NY clinic, and we get many questions about what precisely fibromyalgia is.
Fibromyalgia is a disorder that is distinguished by widespread pain, sleep problems, abnormal pain processing, exhaustion, and can frequently trigger depression or anxiety. There are many other ailments associated with fibromyalgia, including:
In many people with fibromyalgia, we notice that the central nervous system gets "activated" or over-stimulated. This causes a rapid firing of pain impulses and also brings about the wide array of whole-body symptoms.
Chiropractic adjustments have been observed to be effective for patients struggling from fibromyalgia pain, especially when combined with particular exercises. For our patients, we also consider other issues, such as diet and general health to help you get out of pain.
If you’re being affected by fibromyalgia, give our Depew, NY office a call today at (716) 668-2225 to see how we can help you.
