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. However 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. However the most difficult thing about Fibromyalgia is that there is no known cause. That is to say it isn’t an inflammatory disease or a degenerative disease. Moreover it isn’t an autoimmune disease. In conclusion 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)
- Symptoms Open Close
Widespread muscle pain, stiffness and tenderness in the muscles and joints.
Secondly Fatigue – often disproportionate to the person’s level of activity or amount of sleep.
In addition restless sleep or awakening after a long sleep and feeling tired for the rest of the day is common.
More over anxiety, depression & disturbances in bowel function can also occur.
Finally many will feel they have poor memory or a feeling of brain “foggyness”.
