Fibromyalgia seems to be quite common. In fact, approximately five million people in the United States are said to suffer from it. In order for them to continue to function and carry out their daily routine, they must learn to manage their pain well. Such things as irregular sleep patterns, problems thinking clearly, and constant pain can all keep a person from doing the things he needs to do and enjoys doing.

Standard Medical Treatment for Fibromyalgia

Most doctors will start by prescribing lifestyle changes and medication to help the person cope. The following are some common suggestions:

Lifestyle Changes:

  • Taking part in some form of light exercise on a regular basis. Pain is a deterrent for sufferers of fibromyalgia, but research has shown that such things as walking, swimming, and using a stationary bike can actually reduce pain.
  • Managing stress. Stress can actually cause fibromyalgia flare-ups. Practicing breathing exercises, finding time to relax, and trying to avoid stressors can help.
  • Getting into the routine of a good sleep schedule. Fatigue is one thing that keeps fibromyalgia patients down. Going to bed and waking up at the same time, having a relaxing sleep environment, and not eating a few hours before bed can all lead to better sleep.

Doctors prescribe such medications as over-the-counter pain killers, tramadol, Neurontin, Lyrica, Cymbalta, and Prozac to name a few. While these may help a person to cope with the symptoms, they come with undesirable side effects, and none of them address the underlying cause of fibromyalgia.

Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care

We offer our patients drug-free, natural help. We find that often fibromyalgia begins with a misalignment of the upper neck. This causes the brainstem, located in the area of the C1 and C2 vertebra, to send improper signals to and from the body and brain leading to fibromyalgia symptoms. The central nervous system is affected and does not function at its best. Once the upper neck vertebrae are realigned, patients are often pleasantly surprised to find that their symptoms become fewer as the body begins the natural healing process.
