Chiropractic Care for Fibromyalgia
If you’re one of the 2% of Americans who suffers from fibromyalgia, you may be wondering: can chiropractic help fibromyalgia? After arthritis, it is one of the most common chronic pain disorders. Can chiropractic care give you critical pain relief to manage the debilitating symptoms?

You’re in luck. One of our specialties at Atlas Total Health Chiropractic is to provide effective treatment for patients with fibromyalgia.

What is Fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia is a chronic pain disorder that affects the body’s musculoskeletal system. Mainly characterized by tingly, painful sensations and constant fatigue, it is often accompanied by:

  • Chronic pain in the joints and muscles
  • Sleep and memory problems
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Severe headaches

Women are twice as likely to be affected by fibromyalgia than men. It can cause major sensitivity to pain, and there is no known cause. But a family history of fibromyalgia or environmental stresses are linked to the risk of developing fibromyalgia.

How Can Chiropractic Help Fibromyalgia?

Chiropractors can treat the various symptoms of fibromyalgia using adjustments at the pressure points at the spine, neck, or back where patients may be feeling pain. Fibromyalgia patients often report headaches and muscle tension, and chiropractic care is known to alleviate these. Massage techniques and stretching can be included in your chiropractic treatment plan for optimal pain management.

What are the Long-Term Benefits?

Pain management and relief is the long-term goal for treating fibromyalgia, which has no known cure. Seeing a chiropractor regularly, learning exercises, and taking other recommendations your chiropractor makes will help relieve the stress that comes with chronic pain. Our patients with fibromyalgia often report significant pain reduction and decreased fatigue after chiropractic adjustments.

Chiropractic care can be beneficial for you if you suffer from fibromyalgia. Here at Atlas Total Health Chiropractic, we can create a treatment plan for your fibromyalgia. We want to ensure the best possible treatment for your specific needs.
