Fibromyalgia/ME/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

For those learning to live with Fibromyalgia, loss of spine movement, muscle tightness and heightened pain in joints can seem like an untreatable consequence of this chronic disorder.

Beat the cycle – Chiropractic is not a cure for fibromyalgia. But it does reduce the effects of the vicious fibromyalgia pain cycle.

  • Causes Open Close

    Fibromyalgia is estimated to affect about 5% of the population and tends to occur in women much more

    than men. The difficult thing about Fibromyalgia is that there is no known cause, it isn’t an inflammatory

    disease, it isn’t a degenerative disease and it isn’t and autoimmune disease. This makes it difficult to

    diagnose and treat.

    The onset of Fibromyalgia has been linked to:

    a traumatic event that caused a physical injury

    stressful/ traumatic life event such as a car accident or bereavement

    disease/ illness – sudden onset illness or chronic illness (i.e IBS, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis)

    sleep disturbance

  • Symptoms Open Close

    Widespread muscle pain, stiffness and tenderness in the muscles and joints

    Fatigue – often disproportionate to the person’s level of activity or amount of sleep

    Restless sleep or awakening after a long sleep and feeling tired for the rest of the day

    Anxiety, depression & disturbances in bowel function

    Poor memory or a feeling of brain “foggyness”
