Chiropractic Care for Fibromyalgia


How Can Chiropractic Treatment Help My Fibromyalgia?

According to an article on,  patients have been seeking chiropractic care increasingly often. The article states that “because fibromyalgia causes numerous tender points all over the body, many fibromyalgia patients suffer from back pain, neck pain, and leg cramps. In an attempt to solve these problems, many sufferers have looked to chiropractors. Because simple adjustments to the neck and spine can restore the carriage of the whole body, a lot of fibromyalgia sufferers find that alignments of the spine can significantly reduce pain all over their bodies.”

Many fibromyalgia patients suffer from a condition called upper cervical spinal stenosis.  There have also been many studies that show that chiropractic treatment through spinal manipulation, soft tissue therapy, and passive stretching improved patients’ cervical and lumbar ranges of motion, straight leg raise, and reported pain levels in some patients who suffer from FM.

Chiropractic treatment can relieve some of the pain, improve sleep and reduce fatigue that occurs in patients diagnosed with this type of pain.  While there is currently no cure for Fibromyalgia (FM), the symptoms, including pain and tenderness in the neck and shoulders, headaches, muscle tension, leg cramps, numbness in the hands and feet, are such that patients can seek relief through chiropractic care and treatment.

Chiropractic care corrects misalignment of the spine and joints. Treatments such as massage therapy, rehabilitative therapy, spinal disc decompression, and other non-invasive techniques can help make fibromyalgia less painful over time for most patients.  Chiropractic care is a safe, drug-free, cost effective treatment that helps to ease or even stop the pain you are experiencing from this chronic and debilitating condition.
