Chiropractic Management of Fibromyalgia

Brad Farra - Saturday, October 17, 2009

The prescription drug ads you see on TV are not your only option for treating fibromyalgia. Chiropractors are specialists in treating pain, specifically the pain associated with the neuromusculoskeletal system. Fibromyalgia is a condition marked primarily by widespread muscle pain often accompanied by fatigue, sleep disorders, irritable bowel, and other symptoms. Fibromyalgia is treated by Chiropractors using therapeutic exercises, vitamins, herbs, dietary modification, and Chiropractic adjusting if indicated. There is strong evidence supporting the use of aerobic exercise in the treatment of fibromyalgia. Massage, muscle strength training, and Chiropractic adjusting can also be helpful. The best approach to treating fibromyalgia is a combination approach. Using all conservative treatments available and seeing what works for the individual. The prescription drugs should be a last resort.
