Chiropractic care helps to reduce the pain of fibromyalgia naturally by correcting misalignments in the spine to restore proper nerve function.
What is fibromyalgia and what are the symptoms people might experience?
Dr. Scott Gardner: Fibromyalgia is a overstimulation of nerves and it typically causes widespread musculoskeletal pain and fatigue.
How is fibromyalgia diagnosed?
Dr. Scott Gardner: It’s kind of unique because there’s not really a specific test for fibromyalgia, like a blood test. It’s usually diagnosed by ruling out other conditions and when everything else is ruled out, then you’re left with fibromyalgia.
How can chiropractic care provide relief for fibromyalgia symptoms?
Dr. Scott Gardner: Chiropractic can help by restoring normal nerve flow to the muscles and creating normal alignment to the spine. So, the better aligned the spine is, the less stress and irritation on the nerves and the more symmetry and balance within the muscles.
Are there other natural ways to reduce the pain associated with fibromyalgia?
Dr. Scott Gardner: There are. Acupuncture can actually be very helpful. Also, proper nutrition and supplementation can be beneficial as well.
