Fibromyalgia is defined by researchers as a malfunctioning nervous system with widespread musculoskeletal pain. Medical experts also tell us that fibromyalgia affects the way the brain responds to pain, amplifying pain.
The pain often is described as a constant dull ache, deep in the muscles. It is diagnosed as widespread when the pain is on both sides of the body as well as above and below the waist.
Fibromyalgia is diagnosed by identifying “tender points,” or specific places on the body that hurt worse when pressure is applied.
- Back of the head
- Between shoulder blades
- Top of shoulders
- Front sides of neck
- Upper chest
- Outer elbows
- Upper hips
- Sides of hips
- Inner knees
One of the most common symptoms is deep fatigue, even after several hours of sleep. Others include constant, unrelenting pain all over, depression, and severe headaches.
These scientific studies make chiropractic adjustments a natural choice for people suffering with this debilitating condition. After a complete exam, specific adjustments to the spine correct subluxations and mis-alignments. Patients who choose chiropractic care for fibromyalgia report their symptoms ease. Others say their pain is completely gone.
