Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia Care from Our Chiropractor in Imperial, MO

The symptoms of fibromyalgia can wreak so much havoc that sufferers cannot get through their normal daily routines. Patients treated for this condition at our Advanced Family Chiropractic & Rehabilitation practice in Imperial undergo therapy by our chiropractor to improve the functioning of their central nervous systems and achieve relief.

.

Overview of Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is an incurable condition. Most people define it according to the symptoms the patient experiences. This disorder affects the way the brain processes pain signals, making people with it to experience magnified pain sensations.

In some cases, occurrences such as stress, trauma, surgery, or an infection trigger this disorder. Sometimes there is a genetic link. A buildup of symptoms over time is common for some sufferers.

Our chiropractor notes that these are the most frequent symptoms:

  • Widespread musculoskeletal pain
  • Cognitive problems making it hard to focus or concentrate
  • Fatigue often linked to poor sleep because of discomfort.

More women than men are likely to develop this disorder. Patients commonly suffer from additional conditions such as tension headaches, depression, anxiety, irritable bowel syndrome, or TMJ.

Treatment Options

Diagnosing fibromyalgia requires a careful assessment of symptoms and health history in addition to a comprehensive examination. A fibromyalgia diagnosis must satisfy these requirements:

  • Meet published scores for a widespread pain index and symptoms severity scale
  • Evidence that symptoms have persisted for a minimum of three months at a similar level
  • Exclusion of other health issues that could be responsible for the patient’s symptoms

Chiropractic treatment for this condition relieves systemic pain caused when a sufferer’s misaligned spine and vertebrae press against nerves running from the spine to other parts of the body.  Our chiropractor utilizes manual adjustments to improve mechanical function and facilitate the arrival of nerve signals at their intended destinations.

One successful treatment for headaches and pain in the back, shoulders, neck, or other joints is trigger point therapy.  Massage therapy and a prescribed regimen of physical exercises benefit many sufferers.  Our doctor also advises patients on self-care measures such as improved sleep habits, nutrition, physical activity, and occupational adjustments.
