If you suffer from fibromyalgia, you are not alone, as Dr. Groneck sees many patients with this particular syndrome in our Humble chiropractic clinic. Actually, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that roughly two percent of all adults in the United States have fibromyalgia. Fortunately, chiropractic is one treatment option that can provide positive results.
In a paper 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 split into two groups with one group receiving a multi-modal treatment plan 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 individuals who received chiropractic adjustments in addition to the multi-modal therapy approach reported greater results in all areas (pain, sleep, depression, and anxiety) at three months post-treatment when compared to the study participants who received multi-modal treatment without chiropractic. Additionally, those positive benefits were long-lasting as the subjects reported continued improvement one full year later.
Fibromyalgia can substantially decrease your quality of life, both mentally and physically. If you're suffering from fibromyalgia, we might be able to help.
