The Mayo Clinic defines fibromyalgia as, “a disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues.” The condition, which is still being researched, is thought to result in nervous system over-amplifying pain signals. Additionally, patients with fibromyalgia also suffer from morning stiffness, unexplained, regional pain, chronic fatigue, poor sleep patterns, chronic headaches, and an intolerance to cold weather.
Diagnosis for fibromyalgia is also difficult as well. According to the National Arthritis Foundation, “fibromyalgia diagnosis remains difficult because there are no current diagnostic laboratory tests to truly diagnose the condition.” This is particularly frustrating for patients suffering from fibromyalgia symptoms. Without a proper diagnosis, traditional medical doctors cannot provide adequate treatment. This does not hold true for chiropractic medicine. Dr. Chan Gunn MD defines it as, “an oversensitive nervous system that generates false alarms spontaneously or from ordinary non-painful stimulus which physiologists now recognize as nerves and muscles that can generate abnormal impulses.
How does chiropractic medicine treat the symptoms of fibromyalgia? Fibromyalgia has been recognized as an underlying spinal issues. Chiropractic medicine is proven method of safely effectively, treating neurological and spinal nerve based conditions, without the use of prescription drugs. Dr. Brent Heater, uses advanced techniques and precise adjustments to locate and remove spinal nerve interference. Removing pressure from spinal nerves will, over time, correct nerve interference and restore proper nerve function. In turn, this reduces hypersensitivity to pain stimuli.
