Fibromyalgia Treatment with Chiropractic

Burton, MI natural fibromyalgia treatmentIf you are afflicted by fibromyalgia, you are not alone, as Dr. Elganainy sees many patients with this particular condition in our Burton, MI chiropractic clinic. Actually, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that roughly two percent of all adults in the US have fibromyalgia. Fortunately, chiropractic care is one treatment option that can provide positive results.

Research Proves Chiropractic Eases Fibromyalgia

In a paper published in mid-2015, 215 adults with fibromyalgia were evaluated based on factors ranging from pain to quality of sleep to the levels of depression symptoms or anxiety they felt. Then they were split into two groups with one group receiving a multi-modal treatment plan for three months and the second group receiving the same program with the addition of chiropractic adjustments (specifically, to the upper neck tissues) for the same length of time.

The subjects who received chiropractic care combined with the multi-modal therapy approach reported greater benefits in all areas (pain, sleep, depression, and anxiety) at 12 weeks post-treatment when compared to the study participants who received multi-modal therapy without chiropractic. Furthermore, those positive benefits were long-lasting as the patients reported continued improvement one full year later.

Fibromyalgia can greatly decrease your quality of life, both psychologically and physically. If you're suffering from fibromyalgia, we might be able to help.
