If you are struggling with fibromyalgia, you are not alone, as North Road Chiropractic sees many people with this particular condition in our Oakleigh chiropractic practice. Actually, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that roughly two percent of all adults in the US have fibromyalgia. Fortunately, chiropractic is one treatment option that can provide positive results.
In a paper published in mid-2015, 215 women and men with fibromyalgia were evaluated based on factors ranging from pain to quality of sleep to the levels of depression symptoms and anxiety they felt. Then they were split into two groups with one group receiving a multi-modal therapy plan for three months and the second group receiving the same approach plus chiropractic care (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 benefits in all areas (pain, sleep, depression, and anxiety) at three months post-treatment when compared to the study patients who received multi-modal treatment without chiropractic. Furthermore, those positive outcomes were long-lasting as the individuals reported continued improvement one full year later.
