If you are afflicted by fibromyalgia, you are not alone, as Dr. Kallio sees many patients with this particular condition in our Lincoln chiropractic clinic. As a matter of fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that roughly 2% of all adults in the USA have fibromyalgia problems. Luckily, chiropractic adjustments is one treatment option that can provide positive results.
In a paper published in mid-2015, 215 adults with fibromyalgia were assessed based on factors ranging from pain to quality of sleep to the levels of depression symptoms and anxiety they felt. Then they were split into two groups with one group receiving a multi-modal therapy program for three months and the second group receiving the same program with the addition of chiropractic adjustments (specifically, to the upper neck tissues) for the same length of time.
The individuals who received chiropractic care in conjunction with 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 patients who received multi-modal treatment without chiropractic treatment. Furthermore, those positive benefits were lasting as the people reported continued improvement one full year later.
