Fibromyalgia causes widespread pain throughout your musculoskeletal system, leading to fatigue, sleep problems, and memory and mood disorders. After exhausting all other treatments, such as reducing stress, getting enough sleep and regular exercise, you might even consider long-term fibromyalgia pain management using drugs. These pain relievers, antidepressants, and ant-seizure drugs may cause adverse reactions. Fortunately, proper chiropractic care provides exceptional fibromyalgia pain relief without medication.

Fibromyalgia causes pressure points, which are localized areas of the body that are painful or tender to the touch. These pressure points are most common in the neck, shoulders, chest, elbows, hips and knees. A doctor usually says someone has fibromyalgia if the patient experiences symptoms in all four quadrants of the body for longer than three months, and experiences pain or tenderness on 11 or more points when pressure is applied.

Fibromyalgia Pain Relief

An estimated 3 to 6 percent of Americans suffer from fibromyalgia; more women suffer symptoms of fibromyalgia than men. Symptoms of the chronic disorder often begin after a physical trauma, infection, surgery, or significant stress. Sometimes there is no single triggering event. Rather, the symptoms just gradually appear.

Chiropractic Care from Your Clermont Chiropractor Provides Safe, Effective Fibromyalgia Pain Relief

Your Clermont chiropractor at Michaux Family Chiropractic performs a wide variety of chiropractic care techniques that provide safe and effective pain relief from fibromyalgia. Our techniques include:

  • Spinal adjustment
  • Corrective exercises
  • Lifestyle advice
  • Nutritional counseling
  • Spinal and postural screenings
  • Physiotherapy

Chiropractic care is one of the safest, most effective approaches to fibromyalgia pain management because it does not involve the use of dangerous drugs or invasive procedures. Fibromyalgia patients also choose chiropractic care because it works.

Dr. Michaux treats pressure points associated with fibromyalgia through spinal adjustments and muscle massage. Spinal adjustment reduce pain and increase function in your neck and lower back. The goal is to “unlock” the bones of the spine to restore full range of motion. Patients gain not only temporary fibromyalgia pain relief, but also long-term relief as part of our complete fibromyalgia pain management plans.

Our chiropractor can also suggest lifestyle changes to reduce the frequency and severity of painful fibromyalgia episodes. Increasing your intake of magnesium or omega-3 fatty acids may help, for example, as can improving the quality of your sleep.
