Fibromyalgia is a condition that we treat frequently here at Advanced Back and Neck Care Center. We understand that Fibromyalgia, often simply referred to as "Fibro," can cause tremendous pain and it is our aim to give you the most efficient Fibromyalgia pain relief possible. While the causes of Fibromyalgia are not definitively known and currently there is no known permanent cure, there is still much that can be done for patient relief in terms of pain management.
Our chiropractors offer several options for Fibromyalgia pain relief, and we will customize your pain management plan according to your own unique needs.
Chiropractic adjustments are particularly effective for pain management in Fibromyalgia. This may be because of the fact that Fibromyalgia is rheumatic in nature. This means that it impacts the soft tissues and joints, causing considerable pain. Chiropractic adjustments are particularly well suited for the management of many conditions that impact soft tissue and joints, thus a chiropractic adjustment may often be the first type of Fibromyalgia pain relief that our chiropractors will recommend.
Some research seems to indicate that Fibromyalgia might start with the central nervous system. Chiropractic adjustments are considered to be an excellent way to deal with issues or disorders of the central nervous system since the spinal column (which is manipulated during chiropractic adjustments) is the command center for all the nerves in the body. Gentle manipulation can free trapped nerves and help correct imbalances that are causing nerve pain signals.
Our chiropractor in Groton believes in making positive changes that will allow you to live a life as free from Fibromyalgia pain as possible. In most cases, a gentle chiropractic adjustment can do a great deal to bring you rapid pain relief. We also frequently recommend other complementary therapy types that may help bring you even more pain relief.
Heat therapy involves the application of heated compresses, directly to the areas where you are hurting the most. It is common to alternate heat therapy with cold compresses to bring about faster pain relief. Fibromyalgia patients often suffer from a lot of pain from inflammation, and heat can be excellent at remedying this problem.
Massage therapy may also be a good complement to other chiropractic treatments. When performed by a trained caregiver, gentle massage can help reduce inflammation, increase blood flow, and reduce pain levels.
Fibromyalgia patients may also find some lifestyle adjustments helpful in dealing with their pain. These could include prescribed exercises from our chiropractor or even dietary adjustments that are designed to help patients reach their optimum health levels. We find that the healthier the patient is overall, the better they respond to the pain management treatments for Fibromyalgia relief.
If you suffer from Fibromyalgia or you are suffering from any type of similar illness that causes you continued pain, consider the benefits that chiropractic care can offer you!
