Fibromyalgia disorder is a chronic disease that involves pain, sensitivity and other symptoms affecting the entire musculoskeletal system. In addition to the pain, which can range from minor to debilitating depending on the individual, many patients also suffer from ongoing fatigue, mood disorders and sleep disturbances. Fibromyalgia is a more common condition than many people think, affecting as many as five million people in the United States alone. Although there is no known cure, chiropractic services at Lehmann Chiropractic may help alleviate the symptoms and enable patients suffering from the disease to live a more fulfilling life.
Chiropractic treatments for Fibromyalgia patients may include standard spinal adjustments often combined with soft tissue techniques. Many patients who are treated with this combination have experienced significant long-term improvement, including pain reduction and decreased fatigue. Through the addition of chiropractic treatment to an overall care plan, it may be possible for some fibromyalgia patients to live a less painful and more fulfilling life.
For fibromyalgia sufferers, taking medications can sometimes seem like an endless cycle. Chiropractic care is a low-risk and completely natural treatment that may bring lasting results.
