Fibromyalgia is a chronic disorder affecting soft tissues and muscles that is characterized by fatigue, localized tenderness, and widespread musculoskeletal pain. Research into fibromyalgia suggests it may be the result of the body's inability to process pain correctly, amplifying pain by inhibiting the brain's processing of these signals. Pain is your body's way of telling you something is wrong, and because the underlying factors of Fibromyalgia are unknown, it can be difficult to diagnose as the symptoms may also mimic other conditions.
Fibromyalgia is much more likely to develop in women than men. Surgery, trauma (physical and psychological), stress, or infection can trigger this disorder. Other times the symptoms gradually escalate over time with no triggering event.
The symptoms of Fibromyalgia may include:
Chronic pain, like that experienced by Fibromyalgia patients, may be effectively managed with chiropractic care in conjunction with your practitioner's recommendations.
Chiropractic treatment for Fibromyalgia includes the release of pressure points, neck or back pain management, headache relief, as well as musculoskeletal and shoulder pain relief. Through professional adjustments of your skeletal structure, chiropractic care focuses on relieving the tension and pain caused by Fibromyalgia.
Dr. Serge Lanoue and his team will get to the root cause of your pain, and help you find ways to manage your fibromyalgia symptoms effectively.
