Fibromyalgia Suffers Choose Chiropractic Care over Traditional Methods

Currently, Fibromyalgia has no known medical cure. This condition causes debilitating and chronic pain throughout the body. Symptoms include poor sleep, pain chronic tiredness, and sometimes depression. The causes of the condition aren’t known, but some think that the patient’s low threshold to pain may be caused by increased brain sensitivity to pain. Other causes might be a genetic predisposition to it as well as stress which disrupts the normal dopamine related neurotransmission. Other causes can include abnormal serotonin levels as well as a lack of growth hormone secretion. Chiropractic treatment has been shown to be effective in managing this condition.

Chiropractic treatment works by using manipulation which include quick and short thrusts to the vertebrae to get these back into the right position.

The Fibromyalgia condition causes many tender points all over the body such as neck, back, leg and other pain. Fibromyalgia suffers often seek out chiropractors to help them manage these pain issues. The adjustment of the skeletal system in suffers can help them reduce the amount of pain they experience.
