If you suffer from fibromyalgia, you are not alone, as Dr. Izquierdo sees many patients with this particular syndrome in our Mauldin chiropractic office. Actually, 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 medical study 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 or anxiety they felt. Then they were divided into two groups with one group receiving a multi-modal therapy program for three months and the second group receiving the same program plus chiropractic adjustments (specifically, to the upper neck area) for the same length of time.
The subjects who received chiropractic adjustments in addition to the multi-modal treatment program reported greater results in all areas (pain, sleep, depression, and anxiety) at 12 weeks post-treatment when compared to the study participants who received multi-modal therapy without chiropractic care. Furthermore, those positive benefits were lasting as the patients reported continued improvement one full year later.
Fibromyalgia can substantially decrease your quality of life, both psychologically and physically. If you're struggling with fibromyalgia, we might be able to help.
