Fibromyalgia Syndrome (FMS) is a pain disorder that affects at least 10 million Americans, 75-90% of which are women. Those who suffer from this syndrome suffer pain throughout their body. Chiropractic treatments can help fibromyalgia sufferers increase their mobility and reduce their pain. Learn more about how chiropractic treatments can help below, and make an appointment with us in our Celebration, FL office today.
Sufferers of FMS may feel pain in one area or throughout their entire body. The pain can be felt in the muscles, joints, soft tissue, or other areas. Many aspects of fibromyalgia still lack research, but it’s widely believed to be a nerve-related disease that can be triggered by the following causes:
- Untreated injury
- Extreme stress or trauma
- Immune disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis
Chiropractic Treatment for Fibromyalgia
Chiropractors can help eliminate fibromyalgia pain through adjustments, manipulations and stretches. From massage therapy to laser therapy, we offer solutions that can relieve your fibromyalgia pain. Here are just a few of the benefits of working with a fibromyalgia chiropractor:
- Medication-Free Treatment. Chiropractic therapy is an excellent way to treat your symptoms without risking addiction to pain medications or other complications. If you prefer, you can also combine medication with chiropractic treatment.
- Improve Mobility. Chiropractic treatments involve testing and expanding the patient’s range of motion. Since exercise is highly encouraged for sufferers of fibromyalgia, this enhanced mobility may be key to helping you overcome your symptoms.
