If you suffer from fibromyalgia, you are not alone, as Dr. Ramsey sees many patients with this particular problem in our Gresham chiropractic office. As a matter of fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that roughly two percent of all adults in the United States have fibromyalgia. Thankfully, chiropractic is one treatment option that can provide positive results.
In a paper released in mid-2015, 215 adults with fibromyalgia were evaluated based on factors ranging from pain to quality of sleep to the levels of depression and anxiety they felt. Then they were split into two groups with one group receiving a multi-modal treatment plan 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 addition to the multi-disciplinary therapy program reported greater benefits 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 care. Furthermore, those positive benefits were long-lasting as the people reported continued improvement one full year later.
Fibromyalgia can significantly reduce your quality of life, both mentally and physically. If you're struggling with fibromyalgia, we might be able to help.
