If you suffer with fibromyalgia, you are not alone, as Dr. Elganainy sees many people with this particular syndrome in our Burton chiropractic clinic. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that roughly two percent of all adults in the United States have fibromyalgia. Fortunately, chiropractic is one treatment option that can provide positive results.
In a paper published in mid-2015, 215 women and men with fibromyalgia were assessed based on factors ranging from pain to quality of sleep to the levels of depression symptoms and anxiety they felt. Then they were split into two groups with one group receiving a multi-modal therapy program for three months and the second group receiving the same program with the addition of chiropractic adjustments (specifically, to the upper neck area) for the same length of time.
The individuals who received chiropractic care in addition to the multi-disciplinary therapy approach reported greater results in all areas (pain, sleep, depression, and anxiety) at three months post-treatment when compared to the study participants who received multi-modal therapy without chiropractic care. Additionally, those positive benefits were long-lasting as the subjects reported continued improvement one full year later.
Fibromyalgia can substantially reduce your quality of life, both mentally and physically. If you're dealing with fibromyalgia, we might be able to help.
