Fibromyalgia and chiropractic



Fibromyalgia is a chronic pain related illness that is commonly seen by chiropractors.  Visiting a chiropractor is becoming increasingly popular for sufferers of this disease because chiropractic is a natural therapy that is able to relieve stress and pain. 

Fibromyalgia is an auto immunity disorder, meaning that the body in some way is fighting against its own tissue. 

A preliminary study by the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto showed that a 4 week chiropractic treatment program resulted in improved pain levels and ranges of motion in patients versus a control group.

Benefits of Chiropractic for Fibromyalgia
1)      With a doctor’s supervision, the patient can lower the amount of pain medication taken
2)      Reduction of pain and trigger points characteristic of fibromyalgia
3)      Better sleep allowing the body to rest and recuperate
4)      Improvement of chronic fatigue that characterizes fibromyalgia

If you suffer from Fibromyalgia, chiropractic is strongly recommended, and will give you a great benefit.

In many countries the doctor recommends chiropractic patients with fibromyalgia.
