For those dealing with Fibromyalgia, Chiropractic care can help to ease the pain associated with this condition. Fibromyalgia sufferers often experience debilitating pain which keeps them from living a productive and active life. When the spine is misaligned, any number of nerves which originate from the spinal cord can be irritated which can worsen Fibromyalgia pain.
Because those with Fibromyalgia also experience a heightened sense of pain, it’s worthwhile to explore modalities such as gentle chiropractic adjustments, spinal decompression, and massage therapy which can help to manage pain without the side effects associated with taking pain medications.
The Cox™ Technique
Here at Pflugerville Wellness, Dr. Peng is an expert in the Cox™ Technique which is a low impact and extremely gentle method of aligning the spine. This is an ideal therapy for our patients who have Fibromyalgia since it places so little force on the body.
Chiropractic Care Modalities for Fibromyalgia Patients
In addition to chiropractic adjustments to correct subluxations in the spine, we also offer other modalities which will aid in pain relief such as:
- Massage Therapy – we offer massage therapy as a way to decrease tension and soreness and help improve blood flow to the muscles and tissue.
- Intersegmental Traction – this type of modality gently stretches the body, thereby pulling the vertebrae to release tension and to realign the spine.
Functional Medicine Approach to Fibromyalgia
Chiropractic care can greatly assist in pain relief from Fibromyalgia. However, in order to successfully treat Fibromyalgia, a more comprehensive approach may be needed or a functional medicine approach to look for root causes of disease and illness. Root causes of Fibromyalgia are usually multifaceted and can include:
- A compromised or weakened immune system due to physical or emotional stressors (both long and short-term)
- Eating a diet with too few nutrients
- Exposure to toxins, both environmental and through the diet
- Imbalanced hormones to include thyroid
- Untreated, chronic viral or bacterial infections
