Understanding Chiropractic Care for Fibromyalgia

 

Some patients fear that chiropractic care for fibromyalgia may aggravate pain. But it is both safe and proven to reduce pain from fibromyalgia.

Many fibromyalgia patients seek natural treatment for fibromyalgia, and chiropractic care is one of the most frequently considered, especially for pain management and to improve the range of motion of joints.

This form of medicine is based on the principle that the body has the ability to self-heal and recover from a disease. The nervous system runs between the spine and carries messages from the brain to every cell of the body.

When the vertebrae are restricted, locked or misaligned there will be pressure on the nerves and symptoms will occur. For this reason, a chiropractor will perform “adjustments” using gentle pressure, stretching or certain high velocity thrusts to bring the vertebrae to optimal position and restore health.
