My patients often asked how chiropractic and acupuncture can help with fibromyalgia. We are now able to treat patients at our Parker office and significantly improve their quality of life.
Fibromyalgia Symptoms helped by Chiropractic & Acupuncture
Fibromyalgia is a disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues. Many people who have fibromyalgia also have tension headaches, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, irritable bowel syndrome, anxiety and depression. Medications are costly and come with a host of side effects often more problematic than the disease itself. Symptoms sometimes begin after a physical trauma, surgery, infection or significant psychological stress. In other cases, symptoms gradually accumulate over time with no single triggering event. Often times nutritional testing reveals deficiencies of certain vitamins and minerals and accumulation of toxic heavy metals.
At Hatch Chiropractic in Parker we use either a blood or hair analysis to test for these deficiencies so we know how to properly instruct the patient regarding their diet and supplementation. Because fibromyalgia is characterized by a tightening inflammation of the fascia throughout the body chiropractic and acupuncture have a profound effect of releasing that pressure that is built up in the tissues. Commonly immediate relief is experienced after these treatments. Although there is no “cure” for fibromyalgia patients who receive the proper care can lead a relatively pain free life.
