If you suffer with fibromyalgia, you are not alone, as Sweeney Chiropractic sees many patients with this particular problem in our Nashville chiropractic office. As a matter of fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that roughly two percent of all adults in the US have fibromyalgia. Thankfully, chiropractic care is one treatment option that can provide positive results.
In a paper released in mid-2015, 215 women and men with fibromyalgia were assessed 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 treatment program for three months and the second group receiving the same program with the addition of chiropractic care (specifically, to the upper neck tissues) for the same length of time.
The individuals who received chiropractic adjustments in addition to the multi-disciplinary treatment approach 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. Additionally, those positive results were long-lasting as the individuals reported continued improvement one full year later.
