Fibromyalgia Rehabilitation and Treatment
Fibromyalgia is a complex disorder that affects the soft tissue of the body, causing muscle pain and fatigue. It is generally indicated by widespread pain, extreme fatigue and disturbed sleep patterns. Pain is most often described as being intense in points around the neck, shoulder, chest, hip, and elbow regions. Chiropractic care has consistently ranked as one of the therapeutic approaches that offer the most relief for the fibromyalgia patient.
Carlsbad chiropractor Dr. Dahl makes adjustments to the alignment of the neck and the spine, which significantly reduces pain throughout the body. Studies show that regular spinal manipulation treatments will help fibromyalgia sufferers to enjoy a better quality of sleep as well as experiencing less pain and reduced fatigue. The latest research shows that fibromyalgia is rooted in the central nervous system. Patients with this disorder present more nerve growth often related to nervous system interference and hypersensitivity. The whole principle of chiropractic care revolves around the idea that a patient’s health is controlled by the state of their nervous system.
Many patients find the necessary relief from chiropractic care because the symptoms affect the entire body and doctors of chiropractic take a holistic approach. Dr. Dahl is especially equipped to help patients reduce their symptoms and find a better quality of life by using chiropractic care.
Studies have been conducted analyzing the benefits of chiropractic care in fibromyalgia patients. Fibromyalgia patients often indicate alternative chiropractic treatments best relieved their pain in comparison to drug treatments. It is no surprise that chiropractic treatments rank most effective with many patients. Recent studies examined the effectiveness of spinal manipulation in relieving fibromyalgia symptoms. After just 15 treatments, fibromyalgia patients suffered from less pain and fatigue, and actually enjoyed better sleep quality.
