Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain, fatigue, and tenderness in certain areas of the body. While the exact cause of fibromyalgia is not known, it is thought to be related to problems with the way the brain processes pain signals.
Chiropractic care may be helpful for some people with fibromyalgia as it addresses the underlying musculoskeletal problems associated with the condition. Chiropractors may use manual adjustments and manipulations to help alleviate pain and improve mobility in areas of the body that are affected by fibromyalgia. They may also use other techniques such as soft tissue therapy, stretching, and exercises to help reduce inflammation and pain, and improve overall joint health.
Chiropractors may also work with other healthcare practitioners to create a comprehensive treatment plan that addresses all aspects of the condition, including physical, emotional, and psychological well-being.
