If you are struggling with fibromyalgia, you are not alone, as North Road Chiropractic sees many patients with this particular problem in our Oakleigh chiropractic practice. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that roughly two percent of all adults in the United States have fibromyalgia. Fortunately, chiropractic is one treatment option that can provide positive results.
In a study published in mid-2015, 215 adults with fibromyalgia were assessed based on factors ranging from pain to quality of sleep to the levels of depression symptoms 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 plus chiropractic care (specifically, to the upper neck area) for the same length of time.
The subjects who received chiropractic adjustments combined with the multi-modal treatment program reported greater benefits in all areas (pain, sleep, depression, and anxiety) at 12 weeks post-treatment when compared to the study participants who received multi-modal treatment without chiropractic. In addition, those positive results were long-lasting as the individuals reported continued improvement one full year later.
