If you suffer from fibromyalgia, you are not alone, as Dr. Kallio sees many people with this particular problem in our Lincoln chiropractic clinic. Actually, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that roughly two percent of all adults in the US 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 symptoms and anxiety they felt. Then they were divided 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 area) for the same length of time.
The subjects who received chiropractic care in conjunction with the multi-disciplinary treatment 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. In addition, those positive results were lasting as the individuals reported continued improvement one full year later.
Fibromyalgia can greatly reduce your quality of life, both mentally and physically. If you're struggling with fibromyalgia, we might be able to help.
