If you suffer with fibromyalgia, you are not alone, as Blake Chiropractic & Rehabilitation sees many patients with this particular condition in our Harrisburg chiropractic practice. Actually, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that roughly two percent of all adults in the US have fibromyalgia. Fortunately, chiropractic is one treatment option that can provide positive results.
In a 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 and anxiety they felt. Then they were split into two groups with one group receiving a multi-modal therapy plan for three months and the second group receiving the same approach plus chiropractic adjustments (specifically, to the upper neck area) for the same length of time.
The individuals who received chiropractic adjustments in addition to 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 participants who received multi-modal treatment without chiropractic. Furthermore, those positive benefits were lasting as the individuals reported continued improvement one full year later.
Fibromyalgia can substantially reduce your quality of life, both psychologically and physically. If you're dealing with fibromyalgia, we might be able to help.
