Today approximately 3 to 6 percent of Americans suffer from fibromyalgia. Out of those diagnosed, the majority of them are women. However, despite the large percentage of people suffering with this disease, it is still thought of among the general population as a mystery. Fibromyalgia is a condition in which the person has hypersensitivity to pain due to the brain processing pain sensations incorrectly. It is characterized by long term pain and tenderness in joints, muscles, tendons, and other soft tissues. This pain and tenderness is also linked to a variety of symptoms including fatigue, sleep problems, headaches, depression and anxiety.
Chiropractic adjustments remove interference and help to re-establish the connection of your nervous system to all the parts of your body. When the brain is receiving incorrect signals, which is believed to be the cause of the heightened sensitivity to pain, it is especially important to make sure the nervous system is functioning optimally. If you’ve been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, chiropractic care along with closely monitoring your diet are some of the best treatment options to effectively reduce pain. At Bolingbrook Family Chiropractic, our doctors have extensive knowledge in fibromyalgia and are aware of the best treatment methods for those who have been diagnosed.
