Fibromyalgia is an extremely painful chronic condition that impacts the daily lives of all its sufferers. Chiropractic care in Orinda CA can help ease the symptoms of this chronic disease and help you live a more active life.
DIAGNOSING AND UNDERSTANDING FIBROMYALGIA IN ORINDA CA
Fibromyalgia has no definitive single cause or cure. Individuals are most often diagnosed after all other diseases with similar symptoms are ruled out, and the sufferer has experienced widespread, chronic pain for at least three months.
The specific symptoms of fibromyalgia are different for everyone but typically include body and joint pain, tenderness at specific points along the body, exhaustion, insomnia, headaches and migraines, intestinal and stomach disturbances, depression and anxiety.
CHIROPRACTIC CARE FOR FIBROMYALGIA
Treating fibromyalgia involves managing the symptoms and reducing pain. Traditional medicine often recommends various pain killers, nerve blockers and antidepressants to manage symptoms, but these medications often have side-effects.
Chiropractic care can help you reduce the symptoms of fibromyalgia and your reliance on prescription medications. The core of our fibromyalgia pain management program is chiropractic adjustments. We have found that many fibromyalgia sufferers have multiple misalignments in their back and extremity joints, and these misalignments often cause additional pain and range of motion problems in addition to the symptoms of fibromyalgia.
Receiving regular chiropractic adjustments can correct these minor misalignments, reduce pain and inflammation and help restore range of motion, and as your overall body pain is reduced, your reliance on prescription medications is also reduced. This helps improve your quality of life and allows you to more fully participate in the specific exercise programs that are often recommended for fibromyalgia sufferers.
If you are suffering from fibromyalgia, do not hesitate to contact our Orinda chiropractic office. Our chiropractor can evaluate your symptoms and recommend a treatment program for pain management.
