Fibromyalgia Pain?  We can help!

 

 

By Dr. Ed Reilly

 

Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue.  Sleep disturbances, memory issues (also known as “fibro fog”) mood issues, restless leg syndrome, irritable bowel syndrome, headaches, numbness or tingling in the extremities, painful menstrual periods, and temperature sensitivity are amongst the many symptoms of this complex disorder.  Like arthritis, fibromyalgia is considered a rheumatic condition (a medical condition that impairs the joints and/or soft tissue and causes chronic pain), although unlike arthritis fibromyalgia does not cause damage or inflammation to the joints, muscles, or other tissues.

 

 The cause of fibromyalgia is unknown.  Many people develop fibromyalgia after a serious injury or illness.  An emotionally stressful or traumatic event can also trigger the condition.  Some connect it to repetitive injuries. For others, fibromyalgia seems to occur spontaneously.  There may be a genetic basis to the condition.  Scientists have discovered that the condition seems to run in families and also that sufferers share certain genes.  Researchers believe repeated nerve stimulation causes the brains of people with fibromyalgia to change. This change involves an abnormal increase in levels of certain chemicals in the brain that signal pain (neurotransmitters). In addition, the brain's pain receptors seem to develop a sort of memory of the pain and become more sensitive, meaning they can overreact to pain signals.

 

Suffers are overwhelmingly female (80-90 percent) and middle aged but the condition can affect anyone of any age or gender. 

 

There is current no diagnostic test for fibromyalgia, and no known cure.  At Fairview Chiropractic, we offer several treatments that can help alleviate fibromyalgia symptoms, including:

 

  • Advanced myofascial release therapy
  • Magnetic Resonance Therapy
  • Class 4 laser therapy
  • Neurofeedback, which helps retrain the brain not to overreact to pain signals
  • Neurotransmitter support-hypothalamic, pituitary, and adrenal testing to properly determine the correct supplements your body needs

 

Call us today for your always free consultation and learn how we can help alleviate your fibromyalgia symptoms.
