If you are struggling with fibromyalgia, you are not alone, as Dynamic Chiropractic sees many people with this particular condition in our Memphis chiropractic clinic. As a matter of fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that roughly two percent of all adults in the USA have fibromyalgia discomfort. Fortunately, chiropractic care 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 symptoms or 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 tissues) for the same length of time.
The individuals who received chiropractic adjustments combined with the multi-modal therapy approach reported greater results in all areas (pain, sleep, depression, and anxiety) at 12 weeks post-treatment when compared to the study patients who received multi-modal treatment without chiropractic therapy. Additionally, those positive benefits were long-lasting as the patients reported continued improvement one full year later.
