For those learning to live with Fibromyalgia, loss of spine movement, muscle tightness and heightened pain in joints can seem like an untreatable consequence of this chronic disorder.
Beat the cycle
Chiropractic is not a cure for fibromyalgia. But it does reduce the effects of the vicious fibromyalgia pain cycle.
Heightened pain > Increased muscle tightness > Loss of movement
At Life Chiropractic our tailored fibromyalgia treatment programmes focus on continual adjustments to the spine, and gentle massage. The aim is to relax tightened muscles and prevent further loss of movement, making it possible for you to take control, and lead a full and active life.
Enjoy restorative sleep
Whilst so much is still unknown about the cause, and treatment of fibromyalgia, scientists agree that most people suffering from the disorder are deprived of deep restorative sleep.
As a trusted chiropractor supporting patients diagnosed with fibromyalgia we focus on correcting posture, alongside hands on chiropractic adjustments specifically aimed at improving spinal alignment. Resulting in enhancing overall comfort and making it more likely for patients to relax into a more restorative sleep.
Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition of widespread pain and profound fatigue. Affecting the four quadrants of the body, with pain tending to be felt as diffuse aching or burning, often described as head to toe, or on right and left sides, as well as above and below the waist.
Caused by a decrease in blood flow to pituitary gland in the brain, it restricts blood flow which consequently slows the production and distribution of hormones throughout your body including somatotropin.
It may be worse at some times than at others. It may also change location, usually becoming more severe in parts of the body that are used most.
