Fibromyalgia, for those who may not know, is a syndrome that disproportionately affects women and causes pain including abdominal pain, trouble sleeping, chronic fatigue, and psychological distress. While it can be difficult to diagnose fibromyalgia, chiropractors can make a diagnosis and work with you on a treatment plan. Chiropractors will also help to treat those same symptoms caused by different ailments.
Does Chiropractic Help with Fibromyalgia Pain?
Whether you find yourself with chronic, widespread pain as a result of fibromyalgia or something else, the common medical pain management methods include a mix of over-the-counter drugs and strong opiates that run a high risk of addiction. The consensus is that pain is an epidemic in this country and implementing procedures from a trained and certified chiropractor can be an integral part of your pain management plan.
Does Chiropractic Help with Fibromyalgia Fatigue?
One of the potential symptoms of fibromyalgia is chronic fatigue and by treating this fatigue with chiropractic procedures, it can frequently help. Although, before you assume the fatigue is from fibromyalgia, it’s important that you rule out other potentially serious causes of fatigue when you’re exploring your care options. Once you’re sure you’re addressing any other serious health issues, like cancer, that may be causing fatigue, chiropractic care can be part of alleviating your fatigue.
In addition to recommending supplements and dietary options, chiropractors can provide spinal adjustments that could help to temporarily relieve your chronic fatigue. These options can help improve your quality of life while avoiding harsh medical treatments.
Does Chiropractic Help with Quality of Sleep?
While again keeping in mind that you should rule out very serious conditions, a chiropractor can absolutely help improve your quality of sleep. Massage and spinal adjustments will help alleviate tension and allow you to relax to help you have a deeper, fuller sleep.
It’s not all spinal adjustments though. Beyond that, a chiropractor can also consult with you on your sleeping habits to see what can be improved. You may benefit from changing the position you sleep in or having a different kind of mattress or pillow.
