Fibromyalgia: Symptoms, Chiropractic Care and Treatments
Updated: Sep 9, 2020
Drs. Mark Freund and Nicole Gopaul of Natural Care Chiropractic, located in Lindenhurst, IL, offer treatment services for patients with Fibromyalgia. Fibromyalgia Syndrome (FMS) is a chronic pain disorder. It results in musculoskeletal pain in the tendons, joints, soft tissues, and muscles. Not only is it difficult to diagnose, but treatment can be very hit or miss. Chiropractic adjustments, manual therapies, and an acupuncture regime can relieve negative symptoms.
When it comes to chiropractic care, your body isn’t treated by just its symptoms but as a complete unit. Your Lindenhurst chiropractors believe that only by treating the cause can you alleviate the symptoms. There is no confirmed medical cause for fibromyalgia. Theories range from genetics, physical/emotional stress, trauma, and infections. What we do know is that misalignment of the spinal vertebrae aggravates fibromyalgia symptoms.
Subluxation is the technical term for spinal misalignment. It’s caused by injury, degenerative diseases, stress, and even toxins. Your entire body communicates through the nerves located in your spine. Subluxation blocks these messages, disrupting your nervous system. Receiving a spinal manipulation or adjustment removes the blockages.
Engaging in frequent chiropractic tune-ups and soft tissue work can improve everyday life for clients with FMS. Chiropractic care reduces pain and fatigue caused by the condition. Drs. Freund and Gopaul recommend coming in twice a week for adjustments. Our other services, like nutritional counseling and physical therapy, strengthen your body.
