Chiropractic care is a very interesting thing that has some misconceptions about it. Most people think that a chiropractor just “cracks your bones,” when the methods, science, and treatments are much deeper and more nuanced than that. Chiropractic care channels a little-known subset of medicine known as osteopathy to relieve pain, pressure, and misalignment in the body to treat the source of symptoms rather than the symptoms themselves.
Fibromyalgia is no different. Chiropractic treatment cuts right through the symptoms by treating the source of the disease. The chronic pain leading to restless sleep and impeded range of motion can be lessened and managed through regular chiropractic adjustments, leading to regulated sleeping patterns, relief of chronic pain, and restoration of full range of motion in the lower back, hips, and legs. Chiropractic care realigns the body’s internal systems, stimulating the body to heal itself naturally.
Treating Fibromyalgia Through Chiropractic Adjustments
Fibromyalgia can be a debilitating with the chronic pain that plagues your shoulders, lower back, hips, and legs. Part of what causes this is misalignment of the body’s systems which causes the nerves and brain to misread pain impulses, causing tenderness in your muscles from the strain your body is under from the pain. Chiropractic adjustments are able to relieve some of the pressure, pain, and tenderness. This allows your body to focus on healing, giving you back your life.
The tenderness and chronic pain throughout your body can cause fatigue and loss of sleep, keeping you tired and lethargic while not allowing your body to reset itself fully through quality, regular sleep cycles. This is a very complex problem, but it has a relatively simple solution: relieve the pain and tenderness to restore regular sleeping habits and giving your body a chance to reset itself. Chiropractic adjustments can help relieve the chronic pain brought on by fibromyalgia.
Treating Fibromyalgia Through Nutrition
There are a few studies that show a change in diet can reduce tenderness and chronic pain in fibromyalgia sufferers. The idea is that your nervous system is being impeded by malnutrition, causing it to misread signals sent through the body to your brain as pain. This puts a negative strain on your entire body, but the neck, shoulders, lower back, hips, and legs are the most prominent parts of the body to experience chronic pain with fibromyalgia.
By flooding your body with rich nutrients, electrolytes, and key vitamins and minerals, you can counteract the nervous system deficiency, setting your body on the course to wellness. There is a misconception that fibromyalgia is all in your head, but it truly is a physical condition. In the majority of cases, it is coupled with chronic depression, but it is not a symptom of the depression.
In many cases, changing your diet affects the nervous system for the better reversing the effects of fibromyalgia, which in turn helps overcome the depression. You can be free of this pain and fatigue, it just takes time and effort. Chiropractors with knowledge of anatomy, physiology, and nutrition are able to help you through this seemingly insurmountable illness.
Their expertise, planning, and case-specific criteria for treatment can help you find the door to leave the dark room of fibromyalgia and find your way to the sunny, bright outdoors of freedom, no pain, and full range of motion.
Treating Fibromyalgia Through Spinal Alignment
With the nervous system compromised by fibromyalgia, it can be difficult to do just about anything. The brain begins to receive impulses from your joints, muscles, and bones that are misread as pain impulses. One way to counteract this is through spinal adjustment. By making sure none of your nerves are being pinched by vertebrae, Chiropractors are able to treat the underlying cause of fibromyalgia.
A pinched nerve can be excruciating on its own, but when fibromyalgia gets thrown in with it, your body is way more sensitive to pain, making it excruciating and debilitating. This excess of pain can be a hinderance to your body’s natural healing methods since the fatigue and lack of sleep throw off your internal systems. You can get trapped in your own body with excruciating chronic pain blocking your way from doing anything.
Chronic pain can hinder you in so many ways and chiropractic care can help you get your life back. The only thing you have to do is get to the appointment for a full adjustment and physical workup. If any vertebrae are misaligned, you will find out from your chiropractor and he can fix it quickly, get you back to alignment, and help you manage the pain until your body can fully heal itself.
