If you suffer from fibromyalgia, you are not alone, as Dr. Ahmed sees many people with this particular condition in our Roselle chiropractic clinic. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that roughly two percent of all adults in the US have fibromyalgia. Thankfully, chiropractic care is one treatment option that can provide positive results.
In a paper released in mid-2015, 215 women and men with fibromyalgia were assessed based on factors ranging from pain to quality of sleep to the levels of depression symptoms or anxiety they felt. Then they were divided into two groups with one group receiving a multi-modal treatment program for three months and the second group receiving the same approach plus chiropractic adjustments (specifically, to the upper neck area) for the same length of time.
The individuals who received chiropractic adjustments in addition to the multi-disciplinary treatment program 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 treatment without chiropractic care. In addition, those positive results were long-lasting as the people reported continued improvement one full year later.
Fibromyalgia can greatly decrease your quality of life, both psychologically and physically. If you're suffering from fibromyalgia, we might be able to help.
