Chiropractic Care Helps Fibromyalgia Pain

Chiropractic Treatment Methods Shown to Be Effective during Treatment of Fibromyalgia Diagnosis in Nashville

If you are struggling with fibromyalgia, you are not alone, as Sweeney Chiropractic sees many people with this particular condition in our Nashville chiropractic practice. Actually, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that roughly 2% of all adults in the USA have fibromyalgia issues. Luckily, chiropractic treatment is one treatment option that can provide positive results.

Research Shows Chiropractic Therapy Lessens Fibromyalgia Pain

In a paper published in mid-2015, 215 people 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 split into two groups with one group receiving a multi-modal therapy program for three months and the second group receiving the same program with the addition of chiropractic adjustments (specifically, to the upper neck tissues) for the same length of time.

The individuals who received chiropractic adjustments in conjunction with the multi-disciplinary therapy approach reported greater benefits in all areas (pain, sleep, depression, and anxiety) at 12 weeks post-treatment when compared to the study people who received multi-modal treatment without chiropractic adjustments. Additionally, those positive outcomes were long-lasting as the individuals reported continued improvement one full year later.

Fibromyalgia discomfort can substantially diminish your quality of life, both psychologically and physically. If you're dealing with fibromyalgia, we might be able to help.
