Natural Fibromyalgia Treatment at Health First Chiropractic Marysville
Fibromyalgia is a maddeningly frustrating chronic pain syndrome that can rob you all quality of life, from your ability work to your ability to sleep. This mysterious combination of symptoms causes a number of uncomfortable, debilitating symptoms. But while the standard medical diagnostic and treatment protocols usually add to the frustration rather than providing effective relief, Health First Chiropractic Marysville can step in to provide safe, natural, effective answers from our chiropractor and fibromyalgia doctor, Dr. Robert Clarke.
The Many Miseries of Fibromyalgia
Fibromyalgia is one of those syndromes (clusters of related symptoms) that seems to have no clear, directly identifiable cause. Genetics, hormonal factors, extreme emotional stress and physical trauma have all been implicated as possible triggers. The actual problem seems to be related to a critical imbalance between serotonin (which governs your mood) and another substance known as substance P (which governs your ability to feel pain). When these two chemicals are out of balance, you may be abnormally sensitive to pain signals which might not even register as discomfort for someone else. One of the hallmarks of fibromyalgia is the development of tight muscle knots, or tender points, throughout the body. Other notorious issues associated with fibromyalgia include:
- Irritable bowel syndrome
- Vision problems
- Chronic fatigue
This perfect storm of symptoms can obviously wreck your quality of life without treatment, but simply getting that treatment can be an ordeal in itself. That's because standard medical doctors must follow a strict diagnostic protocol before issuing a formal fibromyalgia diagnosis. You have to show tender points in at least 11 recognized spots, in all four quadrants of the body, for at least three months before you have your diagnosis -- and without that fibromyalgia diagnosis, you can't receive fibromyalgia treatment.
Immediate, Drug-Free Treatment From Our Fibromyalgia Chiropractor
the good news is that Health First Chiropractic Marysville is free to treat your symptoms without waiting for the formal diagnosis of fibromyalgia. That's because our fibromyalgia chiropractor focuses on normalizing your physical function and nerve signaling. This naturally helps to reduce the extremity of body's reactions to the fibromyalgia, thus reducing the symptoms.
Our chiropractor's expertise in upper cervical chiropractic adjustment also addresses a significant issue in many fibromyalgia sufferers: cervical spinal stenosis, a narrowing of the cervical spinal canal which can cause both pain and abnormal nerve signaling. Methods such as the Blair upper cervical technique, which focuses on tiny but effective adjustments to the topmost joints of the spine, can dramatically improve upper cervical problems that may be contributing to or aggravating your condition. It's a drug-free, non-invasive approach to pain management -- and you don't wait to wait three months for it.
