Fibromyalgia is a chronic disorder of the central nervous system that increases sensory input across the body’s organs and systems. It causes musculoskeletal pain throughout the body and is accompanied by extreme fatigue, mood disorders, and memory problems. It can also cause headaches, numbness and tingling in the extremities, and trouble sleeping.  There is no known cure for this disorder.  In fact, little is known about the actual root cause of fibromyalgia.  It does often exist alongside other ailments such as migraines or irritable bowel syndrome, and it can come about after a traumatic event such as a car accident or major surgery. Pregnant women may also suffer from fibromyalgia. No matter the cause, it is abundantly clear that this is a painful disorder that affects the nerves throughout the body.  Because chiropractic care specializes in removing nerve interferences, a Cape Coral chiropractor can help manage the symptoms of fibromyalgia.

Managing Fibromyalgia

Those who suffer from the pain and nerve sensitivity of fibromyalgia may seek to treat the symptoms through medication.  Medication, however, does not treat the root of the problem, only the symptoms.  Chiropractic aims to treat the nerves, which is where the problem begins, to relieve pain and manage fibromyalgia without the risk of side effects that come with prescription medications. Chiropractic care focuses on restoring nerve communication for overall improved body function and more optimal health.

Fibromyalgia Symptoms Are Relieved Through Chiropractic

The central nervous system, which consists of the brain and spinal cord, is responsible for controlling the body’s functions. Since the spinal cord is housed in the spine, taking care of the spine can aid in a healthier body. Cape Coral chiropractors can remove nerve interference caused by misalignments of the spine that affect fibromyalgia sufferers. Removing these misalignments will restore proper communications to all the body’s systems and relieve the painful and debilitating effects of fibromyalgia.  Through gentle, specific chiropractic adjustments, Dr. Omar Clark will remove spinal misalignments which will improve quality of life, pain symptoms, and overall health for fibromyalgia sufferers.

Chiropractic Has Helped Others

Many people suffering from fibromyalgia have found relief with chiropractic care.  Case studies have shown that regular adjustments from a Cape Coral chiropractor produce the desired results.  In one case study, a 64-year-old woman who had complained of fibromyalgia for six years sought chiropractic care.  After three months of consistent adjustments, she had a significant decrease in symptoms, such as sleep apnea, low energy levels, poor bowel habits, and fibromyalgia pain.  Another case study of a 36-year-old woman who experienced fibromyalgia pain after a car accident showed significant improvements after receiving chiropractic adjustments.  Long-term chiropractic care continued to help manage her fibromyalgia even after she experienced initial relief.  While no cure is known at this time, research has shown that significant improvements come from chiropractic care, and it is an effective way to manage fibromyalgia and improve quality of life for those living with fibromyalgia.

Don’t continue to suffer from this disorder.  Contact Cape Coral chiropractor Dr. Omar Clark of Experience Family Chiropractic to find out how you can improve fibromyalgia symptoms and get on the road to a pain-free life and optimal body function.
