Chiropractic Helps Fibromyalgia Pain

Selden natural fibromyalgia treatmentIf you suffer from fibromyalgia, you are not alone, as Dr. BenEliyahu sees many patients with this particular condition in our Selden chiropractic clinic. As a matter of fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that roughly two percent of all adults in the US have fibromyalgia. Thankfully, chiropractic is one treatment option that can provide positive results.

Research Shows Chiropractic Eases Fibromyalgia

In a medical study published in mid-2015, 215 adults with fibromyalgia were evaluated based on factors ranging from pain to quality of sleep to the levels of depression or anxiety they felt. Then they were divided into two groups with one group receiving a multi-modal therapy program for three months and the second group receiving the same approach with the addition of chiropractic adjustments (specifically, to the upper neck tissues) for the same length of time.

The subjects who received chiropractic care in conjunction with the multi-modal treatment program reported greater benefits in all areas (pain, sleep, depression, and anxiety) at 12 weeks post-treatment when compared to the study patients who received multi-modal treatment without chiropractic care. In addition, those positive results were lasting as the subjects reported continued improvement one full year later.

Fibromyalgia can significantly reduce your quality of life, both mentally and physically. If you're suffering from fibromyalgia, we might be able to help.
