Fibromyalgia is one of the worst chronic health conditions, affecting roughly 5 million people in the United States (according to the CDC). The condition is a disorder that causes musculoskeletal pain alongside mood, fatigue, sleep, and memory issues.
While researchers and doctors still don't fully understand the cause of fibromyalgia, it is commonly thought that the condition is associated with issues in the body's central nervous system. As a result, many individuals suffering from the effects of fibromyalgia have found pain relief via chiropractic care.
How Chiropractic Care Helps Fibromyalgia
To understand how chiropractic care can benefit those suffering from fibromyalgia, one must understand that chiropractors view the body as a singular connected system made up of many individual parts. If one part of the body is not functioning properly it can affect the rest of the system.
Fibromyalgia patients often experience severe back, neck, and leg pain and many find that regular chiropractic adjustments help relieve their chronic pain and improve their overall quality of life. This is due to the fact that chiropractic care focuses on balancing the patients' skeletal structure, which is the center of the body.
There have been several studies performed that tout the benefits of chiropractic care for the treatment of fibromyalgia symptoms. While there is no definitive cure for fibromyalgia, chiropractic care can help those with the disease to live more pain-free lives.
