FIBROMYALGIA

Fibromyalgia is a condition that can significantly reduce the quality of life for up to 5 million individuals in the U.S., with women being affected the most. As a chronic disorder of the central nervous system, it impacts the brain, the spinal cord, and the nerves that extend throughout the body.

When fibromyalgia is present, communication pathways in the body are disrupted. Signals such as pain messages are not transmitted accurately, which leads to the establishment of a pain/stress cycle that can be challenging to break. This can lead to additional symptoms, including depression, brain fog, insomnia, anxiety, and more.

Compassionate chiropractors recognize the importance of addressing the root cause of fibromyalgia rather than simply suppressing its symptoms. Vertebral subluxation in the upper neck can contribute to this condition, resulting in heightened activity in the sympathetic nervous system or the “fight or flight” response. Through gentle chiropractic adjustments, the sympathetic nervous system can be toned down, and the body can enter a more relaxed state that promotes healing.

Changing patterns of the sympathetic nervous system, along with personalized nutrition and lifestyle changes, can help reduce inflammation and support the body's natural healing processes, leading to a greater sense of well-being for individuals suffering from fibromyalgia.
