Chiropractic Treatment for Fibromyalgia in Marysville

Fibromyalgia is a disorder that has baffled medical professionals for years. It is a complicated disorder that often leaves the people who have it confused and frustrated, and the doctors who treat them even more so. One of the most confusing things about fibromyalgia is that it is very difficult to diagnose and often people will endure the effects of fibromyalgia for years before a diagnosis is made. The team here at Health First Chiropractic Marysville, WA, believes that everyone deserves to live a full life without pain. We believe people have to be educated and have an understanding of the conditions that they have in order to do so. This is why our approach to conditions like fibromyalgia is so unique.

Understanding Fibromyalgia

Contrary to what many in the traditional medical community used to believe, fibromyalgia is not all in your head. As a matter of fact, fibromyalgia is more common than the average person recognizes. It attacks your muscles and bones and is known as an idiopathic condition, meaning, fibromyalgia is a condition that basically attacks the body without any specific pathway. No two cases of fibromyalgia that are the same, even though the symptoms of the disorder are. Some of the symptoms of fibromyalgia include, but are not limited to: muscle tightness, muscle pain, muscle spasms, fatigue, and tender points throughout the body, brain fog, anxiety, depression, and insomnia.

How Our Chiropractor Treats Fibromyalgia

Although there is no definitive cause of fibromyalgia, the condition is thought to be caused by a misfiring of the signals between the brain and the spinal cord. Our chiropractor uses spinal adjustments to realign the spinal column and the free up the subluxations so that the vertebrae of the spine are relieved of stress and toxins. To help alleviate the widespread muscle aches caused by fibromyalgia, our doctor uses a combination of hot and cold therapies as well as electro therapy. Our chiropractor understands how important exercise and diet is when it comes to the management of fibromyalgia. This is why treatment plans consist of diet as well as exercise regimens suited to address the needs of each individual patient.
