If you are struggling with fibromyalgia, you are not alone, as Dr. Vinick sees many patients with this particular problem in our Redondo Beach chiropractic practice. As a matter of fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports 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 study 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 symptoms and anxiety they felt. Then they were split 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 subjects who received chiropractic care combined with the multi-modal treatment program reported greater results in all areas (pain, sleep, depression, and anxiety) at three months post-treatment when compared to the study patients who received multi-modal therapy without chiropractic care. Additionally, those positive outcomes were long-lasting as the subjects reported continued improvement one full year later.
Fibromyalgia can substantially decrease your quality of life, both psychologically and physically. If you're struggling with fibromyalgia, we might be able to help.
