Fibromyalgia

What is Fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia is a chronic pain condition that causes aches and discomfort in various areas of the body. It affects the muscles, tendons, joints, and skin. It also causes tender points on the body, even if there is slight pressure. Other fibromyalgia symptoms include fatigue, irritability, memory issues, numbness in the hands or feet, depression, anxiety, and digestive problems.

Fibromyalgia is believed to be connected with the central nervous system. Fibromyalgia can affect all people of different ages and races. It is more commonly diagnosed if you have a history of it in your family. Other studies link fibromyalgia to obesity and a sedentary lifestyle.

Causes of Fibromyalgia

The exact cause of fibromyalgia is unknown. However, different triggers can cause the condition to surface. The condition is generally associated with traumatic injuries like car accidents. Other patients report the condition developing after surgery, infections, illness, or other bodily injuries. We have treated many different cases and triggers with success.

Fibromyalgia is diagnosed through a series of x-rays, blood work, and a physical examination. We will review your medical history and complete tender point testing as a source of diagnosis. We will make sure your diagnosis is accurate and that you receive the best treatment possible.

Treating Fibromyalgia

There is no cure for the condition, but there are several treatments to relieve pain.

  • Antidepressant medication
  • Chiropractic adjustments
  • Over the counter pain medication
  • Lifestyle changes such as weight loss, better sleep, massage, and daily stretching

We will assess your condition and recommend the best plan to control your fibromyalgia. There are different coping mechanisms to ensure that you live your life to the fullest with fibromyalgia. We will provide the physical support and mental motivation needed to take control of your condition.
