Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition defined by the widespread pain through the body, and extreme tiredness. Many medical professionals have a hard time dealing with figuring out how to help their patients cope with the pain. A recent study revealed that most fibromyalgia is brought about by some kind of trauma, whether it be a car accident, surgery, or even, psychological trauma. Other symptoms include:
- “Brain fog,” or a decrease in cognitive function
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
- Problems with sleep
- Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS)
Most of the time, women are diagnosed more often than men. Unfortunately, medications cannot cure fibromyalgia but can relieve the symptoms. Instead of focusing on medications, many suffers of the debilitating disease turn to upper cervical chiropractic care. UCC has proven in helping relieve symptoms of fibromyalgia.
UCC practitioners are trained to find upper neck misalignments that interfere with neurological function. Once x-rays are taken of your neck, the doctor will be able to determine how misaligned you are. If spinal stenosis occurs (a condition that leads to the compression of the covering of the upper spine) UCC practitioners can adjust your head and neck so the spine is uncompressed. Once the irritation is removed from the neck, this adjustment will help relieve some pain and stress of the fibromyalgia.
If you suffer from pain that may be unexplainable, you may have fibromyalgia. Consider getting tested for the chronic illness, and then use upper cervical care to relieve your constant pain and stress. Relief can be found!
