If you suffer from fibromyalgia, you are not alone, as Northside Chiropractic sees many people with this particular syndrome in our Port Coquitlam chiropractic office. Actually, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that roughly two percent of all adults in the US have fibromyalgia. Thankfully, chiropractic is one treatment option that can provide positive results.
In a paper published in mid-2015, 215 adults with fibromyalgia were assessed based on factors ranging from pain to quality of sleep to the levels of depression and anxiety they felt. Then they were divided into two groups with one group receiving a multi-modal therapy program for three months and the second group receiving the same approach with the addition of chiropractic adjustments (specifically, to the upper neck tissues) for the same length of time.
The subjects who received chiropractic adjustments in conjunction with the multi-modal therapy approach reported greater results in all areas (pain, sleep, depression, and anxiety) at 12 weeks post-treatment when compared to the study participants who received multi-modal therapy without chiropractic care. Additionally, those positive results were lasting as the people reported continued improvement one full year later.
Fibromyalgia can significantly decrease your quality of life, both psychologically and physically. If you're struggling with fibromyalgia, we might be able to help.
